'Why read Jack McDevitt? The question should be: Who among us is such a slow pony that s/he isn't reading McDevitt?' Harlan EllisonSunset Tuttle spent his life searching in vain for forms of alien life. Thirty years after his death, a stone tablet inscribed with cryptic, indecipherable symbols is found in the possession of Tuttle's onetime lover, and antiquities dealer Alex Benedict is anxious to discover what secret the tablet holds. It could be proof that the eccentric Tuttle had found what he was looking for. To find out, Benedict and Chase Kolpath embark on their own voyage of discovery ... one that will lead them directly into the path of a very determined assassin who doesn't want those secrets revealed.

Reviews

Fans of antiquities dealer Alex Benedict will find their expectations fully met by his fifth outing * Publisher's Weekly * A superb action thriller. Fast paced and . . . thought provoking * Midwest Book Review * There are surprises packed inside the surprises ... effective and moving SF * Midwest Book Review * Jack McDevitt is that splendid rarity, a writer who is a storyteller first and a science fiction writer second. In his ability to absolutely rivet the reader, it seems to me that he is the logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke -- Stephen King
