The year is 2079 and Commander Eric Nyland commands the pride of the U.S. Navy, the USS Macon, an orbital weapons platform capable of striking anywhere on earth. He believes he is stopping terrorism and making the world a better place until he receives an anonymous note one day.
Nyland and his Executive Officer, Lieutenant Commander Padma Asan, begin an investigation which uncovers a conspiracy to assassinate political enemies using the devastating power of the USS Macon.
One of Macon’s brutal attacks awakens an ancient artifact, which issues a powerful call outside the solar system. One day the call is answered and a mysterious visitor comes to earth causing Nyland to question everything he has been doing. Has he been looking down when he should have been looking to the stars?

Smith is quite a story teller. I am glad to see America has a strong manned space program in the future. I had a hard time putting this one down. Nyland, the hero, seems to be some kind of god in space, but hounded when on earth. Smith is very inventive in getting him out of situations, and his description of the weapons systems and attacks is quite convincing. A good read!
