|Plot Summary of Oracle|
Penelope Bailey is locked up in an alien prison, and for good reason--all she has to do is think of a potential future, and it happens. A human government sends operatives in to rescue her, and then to kill her. But only the Iceman realizes that all those efforts are doomed to failure, and only he can go in to set things right.
