Baker & Taylor
A talented problem-solver-for-hire, Blaine Donne is called in to investigate a series of mysteries linked to an enigmatic woman with no ties to the past or present, and discovers a utopian world in an alternate universe.

McMillan Palgrave
L.E. Modesitt returns to SF with a whole new future world on the brink of destruction.
A brilliant scientist on the planet Devanta has created a small universe contiguous to ours --and a utopian city on one of the planets. The question becomes, though, an utopia for whom? And why is a shady entertainment mogul subsidizing the scientist? More critical than that, does this new universe require the destruction of a portion --or all -- of our universe in order to grow and stabilize? Blaine Donne is a retired military special operative now devoted to problem-solving for hire. He investigates a series of seemingly unrelated mysteries that arise with the arrival of a woman with unlimited resources who has neither a present nor a past.
The more he investigates, the more questions arise, including the role of the two heiresses who are more -- and less -- than they seem, and the more Donne is pushed inexorably toward an explosive solution and a regional interstellar war.
