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 A superlative novel ... bridges the gap between literary and commercial SF with rare facility and belongs in every collection Booklist A marvellously constructed novel. If McDevitt never writes another word, his reputation is assured Science Fiction Chronicle Delivers everything it promises with a gigantic wallop Publisher's Weekly Combines hard science fiction with mystery and adventure in a wild tour of the distant future. Stellar plotting, engaging characters, and a mastery of storytelling (starred review) Library Journal A real writer has entered our ranks, and his name is Jack McDevitt -- Michael Bishop, Nebula-winning author
