Stephen Coonts hits the nail on the head on the technological progress of civilizations from hunter-gathering stone age societies to modern information society and back. Here is an excerpt: 'The properties of the technological continuum that we have just talked about are rigid; in effect, they are laws. Since each level of technological achievement requires more and more people, more and more social organization, it follows that without the specialized people, the technological level cannot be sustained.' How true. Besides being a great story, Coonts insight into our technological society and its properties are magnificently presented. I highly recommend the book.

It could have been much better!

While the plot and storyline is worth the reading of this book, 'It Could have been much better!' Had the author decided to explore the origins of the saucer and how we as a race were intertwined with it, the novel would have been much more of a 'Cannot put it down' book. As it is, the petty thievery and the chase are barely able to sustain the reader through to the end. Having said this, the book is still worth a look.

    Horrible!

    Honestly, one of the worst stories I've ever read. I just wrote a particularly lengthy and scathing review of this book, but it was accidentally deleted. I don't feel that this story deserves any more of the time it would take me to re-write it. Just please, please take my advice. Stay away from this book!

    I greatly enjoy reading Stephen Coonts, but this book was terrible. The book was overwhelmingly cheesy--run away from this book. With that known, you ought to read Cuba,Liars & Thieves, or Under Siege. All good Stephen Coonts novels

    Total waste of time and money

    Really, that's all that can be said about this book without being unreasonably rude. It sucked. Really bad.

    Immature script, unbelievable context

    Even science fiction requires a foothold in reality; this work grossly fails this test! The author wants us to believe that a college student suddenly knows enough about a flying saucer to instruct an air force ttest pilot (who is clueless) on how to fly one! Same student presents and executes a ridiculous plan that the reader is asked to believe befuddles a president who jumps to multiple, unfounded decisions whilee he screams at advisors that are just as clueless; while all any of them are only concerned about keeping thier positions!
