A prominent Caltech astronomer, who was one of the first humans to meet the Newcomers when they first arrived, is murdered the night before he plans to announce an exciting discovery. The scientist’s employer refuses to speak with Sikes and George, and they follow him to a rather exclusive club – one which excludes Newcomers. As it turns out, the major discovery was an unmanned space probe, one which originated from the same part of the sky as the Tenctonese slave ship. George fears that this probe could have been sent by the Overseers to search for the missing slaves, and if contact is made with the probe, it could lead the Overseers to Earth – at the behest of a surviving Overseer from the slave ship who has promised his masters not only the wayward Newcomers, but four billion new slaves…the entire human race.
