Inhaltsangabe: Captain Jani Killian had been Evan Van Reuter's lover eighteen years ago, when a Commonwealth diplomatic corps, sent to establish peaceful relations with the alien idomeni, took sides in a civil war. Jani was presumed killed in the ensuing bloodbath, and Evan went on to become the Commonwealth's Interior Minister. But Jani survived as well more or less. Doctors gave her a new face and patched her broken body together with illegally obtained idomeni genetic materials. They healed her of everything but her memory of the desperate actions she had taken -- sure to result in summary execution should Commonwealth authorities discover her existence.
Which makes it unwise to refuse Evan's request for help in solving the mystery of his wife's death. There is no shortage of suspects, and the trail draws Jani back into the trauma of Rauta Shiraa and secrets long buried there, secrets someone has killed to protect. If she isn't careful, she'll wind up the next victim -- assuming her own body doesn't kill her first. For after eighteen years, her rebuilt body is failing. Jani is dying. Or is she being reborn?
This reissue of CODE OF CONDUCT is essentially the same as the version first published in--yikes--1999. I did fix some typos and change a few words, but other than that, it's the same book.
CODE will always be special. Not only was it the first book I sold, it was the first book I finished. Off and on, for 6 years, I wrote, rewrote, revised, quit, and began again. Sold it, and in response to editor's comments, rewrote it again.
I have always found that, in my case, writing is really rewriting. No matter how sure I am at the start that the first words I type are solid, I soon come to realize that this is not the case. It can be depressing at times. All that wasted effort. But it's my process, and if there's one thing I've learned over the last 20 years, it's that I can't fight my process.
