HUMANS AND ALIENS, SCIENTISTS AND CRIMINALS -- AND A MENACE BILLIONS OF YEARS OLD

Hans Rebka had been everywhere and done everything. Now he was going to try to solve the galaxy's most persistent mystery -- he was going to penetrate Paradox.

Paradox is an Artifact, one of the huge and hugely mystifying structures left by an ancient, supremely powerful and vanished race. Many had entered Paradox before Hans Rebka -- but no one has ever left, at least not with mind intact.

But as a troubleshooter, Hans Rebka is in a class by himself. Though he doesn't know it, he's about to uncover the secret of the Artifacts -- and by so doing, loose on the galaxy the most hideous menace the humans or any other alien civilization has ever encountered.
