Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The universe has been explored — and humanity has all but given up on finding other intelligent life. Then an alien satellite orbiting a distant star sends out an unreadable signal. Is it the final programmed gasp of an ancient, long-dead race? Or the first greeting of an undiscovered life form?

Review:

"His most fascinating novel yet...guaranteed to exhilarate the reader." Washington Post Book World

Review:

"McDevitt [is]...a writer of hard, humane science fiction thrillers, and Chindi is one of his very best." Locus

Review:

"First-rate sf adventure and smooth, well-plotted storytelling." Library Journal

Review:

"[T]he puzzles wrapped in explanations within mysteries and cliffhanging resolution are well up to McDevitt's previous high standards." Kirkus Reviews

R.Godsell, September 10, 2008 (view all comments by R.Godsell)
Jack McDevitt is a master at alien encounters. When I picture what a first encounter should be like in my mind, Jack seems to be reading my mind. I like the fact that the Academy has rules that all explorers must follow. So, everytime there's a chance encounter with an alien lifeform he makes it seem like your right there in the story. It's exactly what I want when I pick up a book like this one. I know you'll enjoy reading Jack's books and you'll be starving for more.I suggest Omega next. His stories all have a way of bringing you into the book. I would tell you what it's about, but I want you to be shocked when you find out what happens. You won't be sorry when you purchase this book or any other book by Jack McDevitt. I promise.
