Nick Baxter's an invader, and his touch proves lethal: he's developed an illness which promises a slow death for him, but a very rapid death by freezing for any organism he touches. David tracks him down, but others of his kind are also interested in finding him. Baxter wants to reach a ship so he can get medical help, but he's convinced those hunting him want him dead. David's success may depend on convincing someone who's turned his back on humanity, to find in himself the desire to help others. Written by
