This is book number 12 in the Wild Cards series.
Rights to develop Wild Cards for TV have been acquired by Universal Cable Productions, the team that brought you The Magicians and Mr. Robot, with the co-editor of Wild Cards, Melinda Snodgrass as executive producer.
Pursued by the CIA, the DEA, and the Wild Card mistress of the winds, Mistral, renegade biochemist Mark Meadows uses the three personalities buried in his psyche to outwit his pursuers. Fleeing across Europe and Asia, Mark meets a Vietnam veteran with an astounding plan—to lead an army of jokers in a war of conquest. Caught between jokers who despise him and nationalists who want him dead, Mark must decide whether to unleash his ace powers for a madman’s bloody dream, or to stay true to his peaceful ideals—and die.
The Wild Cards series goes into unexplored depths in Wild Cards XII: Turn of the Cards, a standalone novel written by award-winning author Victor Milan and edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin.
