Ex-astronaut turned physicist Keith Stoner knew that the fiery object hurtling toward the Earth was an alien spacecraft—but the world might never know. He was trapped in an iron cordon of secrecy, for the discovery had set off a brutal power struggle among the elite, raging from the sacred halls of the Vatican to the corridors of the Kremlin and the Pentagon. Each nation wanted to be the first to contact the aliens, to learn their superior technology. The forces of fear and treachery would use any weapon at their command—from mind war to sabotage—to keep the world in darkness.

Aided by a brilliant Soviet linguist and a lovely young student, Stoner planned a desperate mission—a wild, heart-stopping gamble to preserve the legacy of the star voyager for all mankind.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Superior…the most affecting first contact narrative I’ve ever heard or read. I couldn’t help but to play [it] again immediately upon finishing…Stefan Rudnicki continues to impress with this narration.”

    SFFAudio.com (an SFFAudio Essential)

  • “Stefan Rudnicki’s mastery of accents is showcased in this production. His characterization is vivid, and the interaction between the characters is intense and fast paced. He draws out the undercurrent of Cold War tension between the Soviets and the Americans, which contrasts with the trust and collegiality that develops on the mission.”

    " I'm still listening to this one on CD. Halfway through, I'm pretty sure that Ben Bova has ever met a real person. I just can't believe how many inanities and stereotypical lines he can pack into his dialog and descriptions. In a way, they got the perfect reader for this audiobook, because I'm certain that he learned all of his accents from movies. This is truly awful, but I'm'a gonna finish it anyway. "

    " This was ok. Carl Sagan's "Contact" did it better. "

    " I found some of this book to be quite boring. I actually enjoyed reading it despite this. the book's plot moved at a snail's pace! But the ending does make me want to read the second book. "

    " I enjoyed this book. While it is part of a series it can be read as a stand alone, the ending completes the story. I will be reading Voyagers II: The Alien Within when I find it. "
