Strangely beautiful, but, dangerous gemstones begin appearing from blackmarket sources. Two young women, one the daughter of a Lobster fisherman, her dad, a disgruntled fired employee from the National Propulsion Facility and a semi-retired CIA oprative empark of a race to discover the source of these gemstones, and find a mind blowing answer. The end is thoroughly satisfying as are most of Prestons storys. Though sorter than I like, this book has it all, the hook, the action, good character depth, and a rip roaring end. Get this one for a great weekend rhomp.

What A Clunker

This is the worst novel by a major author I have read in my adult life. The plot is ludicrous, but, even if it wasn't, the plotline is so clunky and the dialog so bad that even a B movie director couldn't fix it up. Sometimes a reader can suspend belief to go along with...
This is the worst novel by a major author I have read in my adult life. The plot is ludicrous, but, even if it wasn't, the plotline is so clunky and the dialog so bad that even a B movie director couldn't fix it up. Sometimes a reader can suspend belief to go along with an author's fantasy, but here the suspension is simply the rules of literature.

    Preswton is tiring...

    This is not your average Preston adventure.

    While the caracters are interesting, the story is too far fetched to have any credibility, needed to mantain interest.
    Overall...a bit disappointing.

    Disappointed!

    I have read and enjoyed, over many years, almost all of the previous books by the author:thrilling, dramatic, mysterious, etc. However, this volume has very little of these characteristics. And...the book is riddled with coarse and profane language, which IMHO does absolutely nothing to enchance the characterization of its protagonists and antagonists. The author's writing style, for me, has dramatically changed for the worse, and this is categorically the last time I will purchase his books. Neither in the publisher's preview of this book, or data provided in the inside flap of the book contained any hint of the objectional dialogue found in this volume. Why not?!

    Good page-turner

    Preston always manages to produce a good page-turner full of science that he makes understandable
