From the author of the original "Star Wars(" trilogy comes this breakout science fiction epic. The Empyrean human colonies in the far reaches of space have discovered the Angelmass, a black hole that emits small particles called "angels" that render humans calm and unable to lie. The Earth-based Empire, the Pax, view the angels as an alien plot to subvert humanity and they dispatch Jereko Kosta to find the truth.
From the Publisher:
The Pax Comitus, rulers of Earth, send a spy, Kostas, into the heart of the Empyrean colonies, who have long resisted the power of the Pax, to investigate the mysterious "angels," particles emitted by a nearby black hole, which the Empyreans use to ensure the ethical behavior of their officials. Reprint.
Angelmass, a black hole deep in space, emits "angels," small particles that render humans calm, reasonable, and virtually incapable of lying. The Empyrean, human colonies in the far reaches of the galaxy, has discovered the angels and the power they wield. All members of Empyrean government must carry an angel.

The Earth-based Empire, the Pax, view the angels as an alien plot to subvert humanity. They dispatch Jereko Kosta, an innocent academic, to spy on the Empyrean and find out the truth about angels. With Chandris, a grifter who dogs his steps, he enlists on an "angel-hunting" ship. Close up, Kostas learns the angels may be more dangerous than the Pax fear.

Before he can react, the Pax dispatches their most powerful warship to confront the Empyrean. Now, Kosta and Chandris, among the few who know the truth about the angels, stand between the Empyrean, the Pax, and war.
Annotation:
A massive black hole called Angelmass, which "bleeds" particles that cause people to be completely honest, is situated at edge of the Empyrean--a shadowy realm that remains politically separate from the rest of the colonies.

Praise

Locus
"...ANGELMASS is one of those rare novels that satisfies on almost every level....[It] is thus a serious SF novel sneakily posing...as an enormous golden-age thrill ride." - A. M. Dellamonica December 2001
