Review:

"'Why read Jack McDevitt?' The question should be: 'Who among us is such a slow pony that s/he isn't reading McDevitt'"? - Harlan Ellison
"Superb storytelling." - Library Journal
"Ideas abound in McDevitt's classy riff on the familiar lost-colony theme. The novel delivers everything it promises with a gigantic wallop." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"Perhaps the best pure storyteller working in the field today." - Washington Post Book World

Book Description Ace Books, New York, 2006. Mass Market Paperback. Condition: New. John Harris (illustrator). First Ace Paperback Edition. The book is stored in a Mylar bag. "In 2688, interstellar transports Seeker and Bremerhaven left a theocratic Orwellian Earth to found a dictator-free society, Margolia--and vanished. Nine thousand years later, with a flawed humanity spread over 100-odd worlds, Margolia and its ships have become Atlantis-type myths, but after a cup from Seeker falls into the hands of antiquarian Alex Benedict, Alex determines to win everlasting fame and vaster fortune by finding them. Female pilot Chase Kolpath, this book's narrator, gutsily tracks the ancient Seeker on a breathless trek across star systems and through an intriguing mystery plot, a bevy of fully realized characters, ingenious AI ships and avatars of long-departed personalities who offer advice and entertainment. The scientific interpolations are as convincing as the far-future planetscapes and human and alien societies, bolstering an irresistible tractor beam of heavy-duty action". 4.2 x 1.1 x 6.8 inches Size: 4.2 x 1.1 x 6.8 inches.
