The second year of their partnership finds Alex and Praed on the farming planet, Tallis, hunting for Talon, a particularly nasty but elusive terrorist. They have a lead: Randall Hamish, a drug dealer, has contacted Talon to help him clear the settlers off the planet.
Posing as a convicted felon, Praed infiltrates Hamish’s gang while Alex is sidelined in the farming settlement as his contact. When the meeting with Talon’s second in command takes place, Praed learns there is more to the terrorist than anyone realizes. Then Hamish discovers Praed’s deception, and Talon is anxious to take delivery of the operative as part of the deal with Hamish.
With Praed’s capture, Alex must choose: Does she disobey Henry Davison’s orders and go after Praed? Or does she wait for backup?
But Alex can’t begin to anticipate the events that follow, and the final outcome is staggering.
Talon’s Touch is the second novel of a Science Fiction Series about Mark Praed, a half-human half-alien operative working with the Commonwealth’s counter terrorist task force. The series follows Praed and his partner, Alexandra Lansing and the work they do investigating and fighting terrorism throughout the Commonwealth of Planets.

About the Author:
For P. E. Sibley (a.k.a. Pat Sibley) writing is a passion, or perhaps a compulsion.
She was born, raised, and educated mostly in Orange County, California. A voracious reader as a child, she became interested in writing early on. She wrote her first short story in second grade about an ant. It ended rather abruptly when the ant was smashed by a foot.
She graduated from the University of California with a Bachelor’s Degree in Medieval History and Technical Theatre (both very employable majors). By the time she reached her mid-twenties, she was living a near-gypsy existence, moving from one city to another. She traveled to Europe several times (Scotland is the preferred destination) and to the Middle East, and tried numerous occupations including climbing telephone poles, picking oranges on a kibbutz in Israel, and managing a bookstore. She went back to school for a Teaching Credential from Cal State University, Long Beach, doing her student teaching in Hampshire, England.
She moved numerous times more—mostly eastward and northward to San Francisco and then Sierra Nevada mountains—and now resides in rural Eastern Washington State with her husband, a wolf-canine mix, a cattle dog, and a cat that believes she is really a dog.
