Alex Benedict 07

Jack McDevitt's brilliant new novel of interstellar travel, with an 8,000-year-old mystery finally to be resolved The triumphant new novel from SF author Jack McDevitt brings together interstellar travel, an 8,000-year-old mystery, and a dramatic mission to rescue 3,000 spaceship passengers unaware of their perilous situation. 'The logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke' Stephen King It's 1435 on Alex Benedict's world Rimway, eleven years since 3000 passengers boarded the Capella. The interstellar cruise ship is trapped in a transdimensional space warp, frozen in time. Just a few days have passed on board, and its inhabitants are oblivious to having lost the lives they knew. There is hope for a high-profile rescue attempt, but if it fails they may all die. As the Capella effort becomes increasingly difficult, Alex comes across a rare artifact dating back to the original NASA interstellar ships. The discovery arouses suspicions and Alex and his pilot Chase can uncover the truth only by returning to the museum-like planet Earth. As Chase is pulled into the Capella rescue mission, the entire human race watches and waits.

Rezension
Jack McDevitt is that splendid rarity, a writer who is a storyteller first and a science fiction writer second. In his ability to absolutely rivet the reader, it seems to me that he is the logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke Stephen King
