Over the course of 37 books, John Sandford has proven time and again his unmatchable talents for electrifying plots, rich characters, sly wit, and razor-sharp dialogue. Now, in collaboration with Ctein, he proves it all once more in a stunning new thriller, a story as audacious as it is deeply satisfying.
The year is 2066. A Caltech intern inadvertently notices an anomaly from a space telescope - something is approaching Saturn and decelerating. Space objects don't decelerate. Spaceships do.
A flurry of top-level government meetings produces the inescapable conclusion: Whatever built that ship is at least 100 years ahead in hard and soft technology, and whoever can get their hands on it exclusively and bring it back will have an advantage so large, no other nation can compete. A conclusion the Chinese definitely agree with when they find out.
The race is on, and a remarkable adventure begins - an epic tale of courage, treachery, resourcefulness, secrets, surprises, and astonishing human and technological discovery, as the members of a hastily thrown-together crew find their strength and wits tested against adversaries both of this Earth and beyond. What happens is nothing like you expect - and everything you could want from one of the world's greatest masters of suspense.

Thrilling SF book with some Hollywood mixed in
I enjoyed listing to this very well spoken audio book over the full length.
It is by far not the techno thriller I have expected after the description on Audible. The number and diversity of the characters really surprised me. And those are also my only complaint:
Most of those Characters are too streamlined for my taste, like they came straight from a Hollywood action movie. Even they bring action and humor into the plot, they seem often misplaced on a mission like the one described in this book

spannende und gleichzeitig realitätsnahe Fiction
spannende Kombination aus Science und Politik im Weltraum angesiedelt, packend erzählt von einem Sprecher der stimmlich variabel und gleichzeitig gut verständlich ist, läßt uns von erneut Aufbruch in den Weltraum träumen
