Joe Falcon has a problem. He's bored. He needs a new purpose, and a new adventure.
When an unidentified vessel appears beyond Jupiter, both Earth and Mars begin a frantic race to claim it, aware that whichever planet succeeds might in so doing achieve advantage over the other. But who should they send?
Joe would never consider himself the 'right' person. Drifting around the Asteroid Belt in a converted freighter, working as a surveyor and miner with a crew of oddballs and misfits who, like himself, are running away each from his or her own private demons, he cannot think of a single good reason why he should be the chosen one. But how could he not go?
When the surveyor Butterball rendezvous with the Visitor, Joe discovers a ship so immense, exploring its thousands of square kilometres of decks is unrealistic. As the alien vessel responds to his presence in wondrous yet frightening ways, not a trace of its inhabitants can be found. Virtually everything Joe and his team sees defies explanation, and little is what it appears to be. Joe soon realises he and his crew are expendable and cannot take anything or anyone at face value, including the alien ship's owners. And all the time, the crew is being watched and studied. Then humanity learns that this wondrous spacecraft is not their real problem.
Never would Joe have imagined it would fall to him to make the decision that would alter the destiny of two worlds, launching humankind onto the path to a glorious future, or to extinction.

Reviewed by Anthony Elmore for Readers' Favorite Falcon’s Call, written by Mike Waller, is a nail-biting, fantastical science fiction thriller that puts you on the edge of your seat. Joseph Falcon, a retired naval officer and now the captain of a freighter spaceship named “Butterball,” was exploring an asteroid belt deep in the solar system when he was called back to a space station named Kepler. Once he got back, he got the shock of his life. A UFO had been sighted not too far from where he had been exploring, and his new objective was to find out if the space ship was derelict, or if it still had living inhabitants on board. With his new history-changing objective, will Joe Falcon and his crew of what the world usually called “misfits” have what it takes to embark on the most important mission in the history of mankind? Or will they fail and miss out on this once in a lifetime anomaly? Falcon’s Call by Mike Waller was a very deep, mind-boggling, but very exciting book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. It had many twists and turns, making it very hard to put down. The characters were well defined, and each played an important part in making the story come alive. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. With its fascinating different aspects, it had a way of keeping you on your toes. The science fiction Star Wars meets ET theme made this an awesome read. From murder to mayhem, this book has it all! Because Falcon’s Call has some violence and graphic scenes, I would suggest that only a more mature audience read this book.
