it was amazing
bookshelves: science-fiction

This is the first book in the Alex Benedict series. Jack McDevitt is the best and this series shows it. It combines the deep thoughts that make McDevitt a great read, while injecting more action then McDevitt's has had in past books.
Alex Benedict is the hero of the story here. Benedict is the grandson of a interplanetary archologist who dies at the start of his last adventure. The grandfather's will leaves everything to Alex Benedict, including the mystery of what his grandfather was looking for, and why he was killed. Benedict together with his partner Chase Kolpath race to find the answers before whatever killed Alex's grandfather kills them too.
