Harry Irons has been infected by an enigmatic alien species. As a result, he's losing his mind. It's a race against time as Harry and his team look for a cure in the sands of the Great Wahabi on the newly colonized world of Mirabel. A difficult task becomes impossible as they encounter disgruntled colonists, security forces from Earth, hostile aliens, and the mind-numbing powers of the kitzloc.
