Spies on an Alien Planet
Planet Earth is in jeopardy. Its future depends on the Surfboard® FTL technology—a faster-than-light engine powered by the rare metal, Crynidium. Prosperine is one of the only places in the galaxy it can be found.
Rebels are poised to seize control of Prosperine's government and an alien messiah has arisen. More is at stake here than Earth's trading supremacy. If the miracle worker turns out to be genuine, it could signal the end, not only of humanity, but for all life in the galaxy.
Hickory Lace and her team are sent to investigate.

What readers are saying about this epic space adventure.
"A Great read. Had me at the first chapter. Did not want to stop. Love the plot, the storyline, the action!!"
"McDermott creates a very original and hopeful future world similar to the kind of sci-fi I grew up loving. His alien characters are delightful and believable. I could not wait to read the second book, Rise of the Erlachi which is even better!"
"This a full-blown outer space adventure. Well described characters and a nicely paced story that has a nice flow to it. I read it straight thru cover to cover.
Read The Alien Corps today and see why readers are calling McDermott a 'contemporary Asimov.'

This book features some strong women and men who fight for an intergalactic agency. The unusual twists related to a Christian like Messiah makes for a great read. A new author for me that will be added to my favorites. His writing is very smooth and flows nicely. Very well edited.
