Iron exciting, fast-paced thriller about a charismatic cult with a dark underside, a riveting adventure filled with passion and danger.

Cat Juvell has a black belt and a knack for solving difficult cases. She and her partner have been hired by a wealthy industrialist to retrieve his sister--and the family's millions--from the control of a mysterious cult known as the Golden Sun.

The cult's young leaders, twins Joy and Tomo, are said to have miraculous powers to heal and transform--and the cult's inner circle are rumored to perform erotic rituals in a quest to reach a higher consciousness.

But there are suggestions of darker practices, and a whispered phrase--Iron Shadows--that hints at a long-slumbering conspiracy of terror.

Pounding on the heels of Blood Brothers, Barnes's 1996 fictionalized position statement on American racism, this non-stop erotic thriller seems tailored for the big screen, hormone-zapped adolescents and earsplitting wraparound sound. Cat Juvell, who's white, and Jax Carpenter, who's black, newly divorced but still best friends and private-eye partners, hire on to rescue wealthy heiress Kolla Sinclair from the Golden Sun, a cult led by enigmatic mixed-blood twin gurus Joy and Tomo Oshita. Once Jax and Cat plunge undercover into the titillating rites of the Golden Sun, Barnes doesn't overlook a single cliche of dark fantasy fiction. Before the final ectoplasmic chase, he peels off layer after layer of plot, alternating heavy-breathing sex therapy with heavy-handed flashbacks about the twins' darksome mission. Joy and Tomo, it seems, are two halves of a monstrous whole, post-Nagasaki mutations shaped by their revenge-crazed Japanese mother and a sexually abusive U.S. Marine stepfather into supernatural instruments of mass destruction. Barnes's occasional lapses into farce notwithstanding ("Take them to the yurt!"), this yarn packs a stinging punch. Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. Private detective Cat Juvall goes undercover to locate a missing heiress linked to a pseudoreligious cult led by charismatic twins said to possess miraculous powers. Cat's rescue attempt leads, instead, to the discovery of the terrifying origins of the Golden Sun cult and to a confrontation with her own darkest secrets. The coauthor (with Larry Niven) of Beowulf's Children (LJ 9/15/95) demonstrates his cinematic flair for action scenes to good advantage in this fast-paced sf thriller. Explicit sex and graphic violence, while integral to the plot, may limit this novel's audience. Purchase where Barnes has a following.Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.

    Wow, only 3 reviews for this kick-ass masterpiece? I absolutely love all of Mr. Barnes' work! Ever since I picked up my original release copy of "The Legacy of Heorot", I've been a huge fan, and remain one today. Since then, I've scrambled to get my hands on everything he's written. I absolutely love "Charisma", "Zulu Heart", and "Lion's Blood", among numerous other works by this excellent author. In this novel, one of the protagonists mentioned that a truly great writer must make his/her readers care about the characters and what happens to them, and Mr. Barnes is a master at this rare skill. Highly recommended (if you can find a copy -- I have the original first edition hardback), along with all this amazing author's works. Kudos and bravo, sir, and please keep 'em coming!Kerry Alan Denney, multiple award-winning author of SOULSNATCHER (Lazy Day Publishing, April 2014) and JAGANNATH (coming from Permuted Press February 2015)

    Steven Barnes has a been personal favorite of mine ever since I read "Streetlethal". Barnes is an avid Martial Artist and student of eastern philosophy whose considerable knowledge in both of these subjects shows in his stories. If you are interested at all in either of these subjects you will definitely enjoy this book. On a story level, Barnes' plots are usually not too complex; however he is a master at characterization and he really makes you care what happens to his characters. I loved this book and have already pre-ordered a copy of "Lion's Blood".

    This was an outstanding story. It was good to see a related story about the children of "The African" in Blood Brothers. Not to mention it appears that a government is also keeping tabs of some sort on the occult.
