On a desperate mission to save his entire race from extinction, Emissary Ruell travels to Earth equipped with his two most powerful bargaining currencies - health and longevity - hoping to convince the most powerful leader in the free world that collaboration can save both of their civilizations. Having no way to communicate directly with humans, Ruell must inhabit President Addison Hale's body to carry out his mission.
He quickly discovers, however, that humans are more complex and volatile than anticipated. Only after admitting defeat does he encounter Kirk Longshadow, a cop with nothing left to lose - and who might be Ruell's last chance.

Fascinating read, from big to little
Only listened to it, so don't really know.
The overall concept is compelling, to say the least. Certainly the concept has been visited in the past, but not to this level of nuance and complexity.
Yes, and he does a fine job here. Lot's of characters to explore, and he does so with a flourish.
Not extreme, but it was compelling at times. Esp. the conclusion.
This book spans a wide range of concepts, which at first glance seem unrelated. Yet somehow it is pulled together with style and aplomb. I liked it a lot, and so will you! Recommended.
