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 Mol#65533; on their trail. They've already escaped the assassin twice, and as far as Mol#65533; is concerned, finishing them off isn't just a job anymore . . . it's personal.

Yes, the 3rd book did live up the the expectation, with a very (for me) unexpected twist. It ties into themes suggested in SciFi from decades ago but with a modern-day view. And the ending is not the usual boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-gets-girl sequence (too bad!)...or is it? Young or old, new reader or well-read, read the series. You'll enjoy it.
