Now the story continues, more than twenty-five years later, as pilot David Masen, Bill's son, travels in search of an effective weapon against the Triffids. In New York City, he discovers a group of people who appear to be immune to the Triffids' deadly poison. But all is not as it seems in this colony, and soon David must face a dangerous adversary from his family's past . . .
