Publisher's Summary

Sixty years ago, the space yacht Polaris was found deserted, the fate of its pilot and passengers a mystery. Now, to mark the anniversary of the disappearance, there is to be an auction of what was left behind on the ship.Using his insider knowledge, Alex Benedict, one of the preeminent antiquities dealers in the galaxy, secures some of the artifacts. But then an explosion destroys most of the collection, convincing Alex that drastic measures are being taken to hide what happened aboard the Polaris - which is why that's exactly what he has to find out, especially if it means risking his life.
BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction by author Jack McDevitt.

Entertaining.

Kind of like a Magnum PI episode: not incredibly deep but entertaining...

Entertaining ear candy

I've listened to all the Chase Kolpath/Alex Benedict novels. I like the point of view and the character buildout. The narrator has offbeat intonation, but the wry humor of the character comes through well. Not a deep mindbender, but a fun mystery romp with unlikely heroes.
