The Paratwa

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Human colonists defend their planet from terrifyingly advanced assassins in this tale of “fast-paced action and political intrigue” (Library Journal).

This is the third novel from award-winning novelist Christopher Hinz. Beginning where the critically acclaimed Liege-Killer and Ash Ock end, The Paratwa chronicles the lives of the Irryan colonists as they prepare for the imminent attack of the fierce and vicious Paratwa assassins. Facing the threat of their dark enemies, an Irryan named Gillian must also cope with her inner turmoil, as the madness of her nature threatens to consume her life. She discovers that she is a genetically modified creature whose purpose is to serve the needs of others, and the course of her destiny is not in her own hands. 

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 01, 1991 – In Liege-Killer and Ash Ock , the Paratwa--telepathically linked pairs of assassins--have, under the leadership of the Ash Ock (whose goal is the complete domination of humanity), destroyed the earth's biosphere and taken over the fleeing starships. Only on the satellite colonies has humanity resisted Paratwa control. Now the starships are demanding their surrender and Paratwa are covertly working inside the colonies to bring about their downfall. Gillian and Nick, hunters of Paratwa, have been awakened from stasis to deal with this threat. But Gillian, who used to be one-half of the five original Ash Ock, is haunted by the ghost of his linkage and embarks on a search for self-discovery that reveals the identity of the murderer of his other half as well as the truth behind the creation of the Paratwa. Hinz sprinkled hints of these events in the trilogy's first books, but adds surprising plot twists and satisfying resolutions in this exciting, smoothly written wrap-up.
