Characters from Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time Quintet and Austin Family Chronicles cross paths in this story that explore the timeless themes of love, chance, and destiny. "Tense, tricky, well-plotted, The Arm of the Starfish has all the stuff of which adult spy novels are made." -- The New York Times Book Review When Adam Eddington, a gifted marine biology student, makes the acquaintance of blond and beautiful Kali Cutter at Kennedy International Airport on his way to Portugal to spend the summer working for the renowned scientist Dr. O'Keefe, he has no idea that this seemingly chance meeting will set into motion a chain of events he will be unable to stop. Caught between Kali's seductive wiles and the trusting adoration of Dr. O'Keefe's daughter, Poly, Adam finds himself enmeshed in a deadly power struggle between two groups of people, only one of which can have right on its side. As the danger escalates, Adam must make a decision that could affect the entire world--which side is he on? Praise for The Arm of the Starfish : "Tense, tricky, well-plotted, The Arm of the Starfish has all the stuff of which adult spy novels are made." -- The New York Times Book Review "From the opening paragraph, which places Adam Eddington in a great airport, its atmosphere tense with hurry and frustrations, the story rushes ahead, never losing momentum." -- The Horn Book "What [Adam Eddington] expects to be a quiet but interesting summer of work with the famous marine biologist Dr. O'Keefe becomes a time of intrigue, with Adam playing a leading role in the struggle to extract information on the doctor's experiments with regeneration of starfish." -- School Library Journal Books by Madeleine L'Engle A Wrinkle in Time Quintet A Wrinkle in Time A Wind in the Door A Swiftly Tilting Planet Many Waters An Acceptable Time A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel by Madeleine L'Engle; adapted & illustrated by Hope Larson Intergalactic P.S. 3 by Madeleine L'Engle; illustrated by Hope Larson: A standalone story set in the world of A Wrinkle in Time .
