Read in January, 2009

My second Jack McDevitt and I am not disappointed. He packs enough materiel into this one book for a series. Edge-of-the-seat suspense, great characterizations, crisp writing. I don't understand why everyone compares him to Heinlein. Heinlein should be so lucky!
This is a First Contact book for all you First Contact nuts out there. It involves an archaeological mystery, space exploration, a lot of techie stuff which blew right past me - but bless Jack - he doesn't drown you in technical jargon. The only weak aspect is the almost love story angle, but it had minimal impact, thank goodness. Gimme more !
