really liked it
bookshelves: science-fiction

Another good read by Jack McDevitt. It's a first contact novel and a good one. Suppose the Chinese and the Spanish had met at Panama and someone died. A botched first contact.
The story here is similar. Humanity has, for the most part, given up on exploration having contacted no one in the centuries since the discovery of FTL travel. A private vessel makes contact with another lifeform and messes it up. People die on both sides. The humans hush it up.
Years later the sister of one of the dead learns of the cover up and decides to right things. A second attempt at first contact. Puzzles abound and others don't want the past re-opened and someone, or something, is lurking in the woods.
A good story, well told.
