Jack McDevitt, the national bestselling author of Time Travelers Never Die, presents a new novel of the fantastic unknown—and the fifth featuring the daring Alex Benedict.

Eccentric Sunset Tuttle spent his life searching in vain for forms of alien life. Thirty years after his death, a stone tablet inscribed with cryptic, indecipherable symbols is found in the possession of Tuttle’s onetime lover, and antiquities dealer Alex Benedict is anxious to discover what secret the tablet holds. It could be proof that Tuttle had found what he was looking for. To find out, Benedict and his assistant embark on their own voyage of discovery—one that will lead them directly into the path of a very determined assassin who doesn’t want those secrets revealed.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jeffrey | 2/15/2014

    " This series just keeps getting better and better with each new addition. At one point I was actually thinking that the author was setting it up as the final book in the series, but the plot line wrapped around again and revealed new information. The final culmination of the plot, and the revelations that ensued were very well handled, and clearly set things up for future volumes. "

    " Alex Benedict and Chase Kolpath return. Dealing in Antiquities, they are offered a stone tablet with strange inscriptions. Previously owned by a man who had spent his life searching among the stars for aliens, it is stolen before Alex and Chase can pick it up. Someone doesn't want them to get the marker. As always they are almost killed several times. Good read even though it is formulaic. "

    " Really enjoyed the read. This is the second book by McDevitt that I have read but it certainly won't be the last. Interesting characters and he certainly knows how to tell a good story. "

    " An excellent read; the mystery seemed to get more baffling with every page and the end was a bit of a surprise. Highly recomended "
