Megan Daniels was only three years old the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, but flashes of that day begin to trigger other disturbing memories. At first they are merely snippets, but then they begin to appear more frequently. In her attempt to learn more, she sets out to find her biological mother, but keeps hitting brick walls. No adoption papers exist, and all she has to go on is her possible birthday: November 22. In the small town of Meredith, California, Megan’s search takes on a dire, domino effect - one woman has already been murdered as a result of her inquiries.

Henry Gallant thought Alaina loved him, but now she's found someone else. A tidal wave of loss and grief sweep over him, leaving him undecided about what to do next, or how to move forward. Despite his sorrow, he goes on a dangerous mission to an invading aliens' home world in the Gliese-581 star system. There he uses a neural interface to penetrate their communication network and steals a high-ranking alien's identity. Through this artifice, he learns about their history and society and discovers a way to hinder and possibly defeat them.
