Publisher's Summary

The history of humanity is about to change forever....
On December 5, 1945, five TBM Avenger bombers embark on a training mission off the coast of Florida and mysteriously vanish without a trace in the Bermuda Triangle. A PBY search and rescue plane with 13 crewmen aboard sets out to find the Avengers...and never returns.
In 2168, a mysterious five-sided pyramid is discovered on the ocean floor of Jupiter's icy moon, Europa. Commander Mac O'Bryant and her team of astronauts are among the first to enter the pyramid's central chamber. They find the body of a missing World War II pilot, whose hands clutch a journal detailing what happened to him after he and his crew were abducted by aliens and taken to a place with no recognizable stars. As the pyramid walls begin to collapse around Mac and her team, their names mysteriously appear within its pages and they find themselves lost in an alien world. Stranded with no way home, Mac decides to retrace the pilot's steps. She never expects to find the man alive. And if the man has yet to die, what does that mean for her and the rest of her crew?

Great Audio SciFi Mystery !

This is a great adventure from the imagination of Jack Castle! Many historic and mythical theories are masterfully woven together in this sci-fi action mystery that transcends time and space. So much drama unfolds that listening to the audio version is as fun as an old style radio program. The story shifts from the mysterious disappearance of a 1940s pilot to 200 years in the future and the crew trying to piece together the puzzle of what happened to him. You will never believe what they encounter! I would definitely recommend listening to this book on audio! So much fun!

Great Concept Poorly Realized

Save your money or credit. This one is not worth either. The story is a chopped up mess and the characters are really two dimensional and not very likeable. The cast harks back to the painfully hokey (by today's standards) of the old SciFi movies in which we have a learned scientist, a "happy go lucky idiot" and a foil. It really didn't work well then and doesn't work here at all. Add to this that the author is apparently ignorant about aircraft. The flying boat sent to rescue the five lost flyers is given as a "PBY"(produced by Consolidated) when in fact the aircraft was a Marlin, (produced by Martin). And, according to the author the plane had big loading doors in the rear, (perhaps confusing it with a C-130). Couldn't stand to finish it.
