I am not sure how to describe this short story. I certainly am fond of the two main settings: the Grand Canyon and the Smithsonian Museum complex, but there was a lot of action taking place in those two places which was a bit confusing for me. I never fully understood what the plot of the story. It almost seems as if the writer had the story in mind and just started writing without reading what was written. Perhaps there is a good story in there somewhere, but I think the writer needs to have someone read the story to him and explain the problems. ----- Best wishes, Dave Wile.

Seems like a good idea but needs more details and background to assist the reader with suspending belief. I just didn't get 'into' the characters or plot.

This was a book that once you started it you really didn't want to put it down. Very well written.

With the Smithsonian Objective - David supplies a much needed fill of Morpheus fun in between the best-selling Pharos and the new and equally brilliant Mongol Objective. Xavier Montross is after an object, and will stop at nothing to get it. With powerful remote viewing of future visions, the action moves from the Grandy Canyon, where he enlists his quarry, to the Smithsonian Archive, where his plan comes to fruition. Snappy, taut and great value. Pick it up!

This was a really wierd, very short story that was pretty confusing. The author didn't explain anything at all, and just... ended it. It really needed more explinations and detail, and the plotline itself was just kinda blah. It MIGHT have been a neat plot if they just developed it and kept going with the story, maybe stretching this out to more pages of detail, and adding onto the end. I wouldn't want to read the rest of the series, or anything else by this author.
