Overview
In this thrilling science fiction adventure--the triumphant conclusion to the Tipping Point trilogy--New York Times bestselling author Alan Dean Foster returns to a near future in which genetic manipulation and extreme body modification have changed profoundly what it means to be human.

Dr. Ingrid Seastrom was once a respected American physician. Whispr, whose body has been transformed to preternatural thinness, was once a streetwise thief. Now, in a world on the edge of catastrophe from centuries of environmental exploitation, they are allies--thrust together by fate to unravel an impossible mystery--even as they are stalked by a relentless killer.

Ingrid and Whispr are hunted fugitives bound together by a thread: a data-storage thread made of a material that cannot exist, yet somehow does. Their quest to learn its secrets--and, in Whispr's case, sell them to the highest bidder--has brought them to South Africa's treacherous Namib desert. Beyond its dangers waits a heavily guarded research facility that promises answers, if they can survive long enough to get there. But that won't be easy, not with Napun Mole on their trail. They've already escaped the assassin twice, and as far as Mole is concerned, finishing them off isn't just a job anymore . . . it's personal.

In this rather lifeless conclusion to the Tipping Point trilogy, Dr. Ingrid Seastrom and her con-man companion, Whispr, continue their quest to discern the contents of a mysterious filament. The pair of would-be spies makes it across the African continent to the edge of the inhospitable Namib Desert, where the SICK corporation conducts experiments. Facing the threat of imminent death by dehydration, animal attacks, or harsh terrain, and still dogged by several unsavory characters bent on obtaining the peculiar filament, Ingrid and Whispr plow onward, narrowly evading disaster time and again as they struggle to reach and enter the research facility. Flat characterization and improbable rescues abound. Those who appreciate Foster’s slap-dash derring-do will be glad to see that the trilogy wrapup leaves open the possibility of continuation. (Dec.)
