"An extraordinary new thriller of the future from #1 New York Times-bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Sandford and internationally known photo-artist and science fiction aficionado Ctein. Over the course of thirty-seven 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 one hundred 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 an 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"--… (mere)

I really appreciate all of the work that the author put into making the science in this book plausible. Most of the tech is close enough to what we have now that I can imagine it being in our reach by the time the story is set, and some of it doable now and just hasn't been done. The social progess (and lack thereof) imagined by the story is hard to swallow, but I can understand the authorial decision to basically freeze politics as it exists today except for slowly ramping up corporate power for a few decades.

What hurt the book most for me were the characters. The best characters get the least attention, though maybe if they had more time they'd look worse too. By and large the characters were a poor combination of flat, ridiculous, stereotypical, short-sighted, and (in the case of most of the men) hypermasculine.

To illustrate: The story's protagonist is Sandy Darlington. Tall, handsome, athletic: a thrillseeking surfer dude who is heir to an enormous fortune, and he is cooling his heels working as an astronomy intern until he is old enough to inherit his money. Okay, sure, I can suspend my disbelief for that. He's also a talented photographer, videographer, and editor. That's pushing it, but I'll stretch. But, there's a twist, he's secretly an ex-black-ops supersoldier who is hiding his trauma behind a thin veneer that will inevitably crack, but not enough to prevent him from supersoldiering when needed, and that is a bit too far for me to take him seriously.

More importantly, the depiction of the nation of China and the behavior of its people in this story is offensive. The Chinese characters were even more poorly written and less detailed than the worst of the Americans, and their decisions often come across as horrifically stupid. It reminds me of the depiction of Soviets in forgettable thrillers from the early 1980's.

Overall, I recommend giving this book a pass. ( )

An entertaining book, if a bit light and has a rather funny ending. 3.5 stars ( )

Ruined by a terrible last few chapters. ( )

It was well written and well researched. Nice departure from the crime drama. Will look forward to seeing more like these ( )
