"Empathic Flinx and his minidrag Pip have saved the universe more times than they can count, but the return of an old friend pulls the duo from their retirement and plunges them into a story of intrigue and imagination. The planet of Largess has recently opened itself to trade with the human-dominated Commonwealth. But when the daughter of a powerful chieftan goes missing, authorities believe a covert agent to be the cause. They need someone to track down the princess and roust the troublemaker, and to do so without alerting the whole planet to their involvement. Can Pip and Flinx, perpetual fish out of water, save the day?"-- Provided by publisher.
