This is a science fiction thriller set in a future in which there is a nearly godlike power, the Eschaton, which is policing the human-settled worlds (indeed, which has settled much of the galaxy for its own reasons).

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0441012965, Mass Market Paperback)

A G2 star doesn't just explode - not without outside interference. So the survivors of the planet Moscow, which was annihilated in just such an event, have launched a counterattack against the most likely culprit: the neighboring system of New Dresden. But New Dresden wasn't responsible, and as deadly missiles approach their target, Rachel Mansour, agent for the interests of Old Earth, is assigned to find out who was. Opposing her is an unknown - an unimaginable - enemy. At stake is not only the fate of New Dresden, but also the very order of the universe." And the one person who knows the identity of that enemy is a disaffected teenager who calls herself Wednesday Shadowmist. But Wednesday has no idea what she knows.
