What if First Contact doesn't come the way we expect it-or with the sort of aliens we expect? When every side has secrets within secrets to keep, how is anyone supposed to know the truth - or live to tell about it? Is what the Prospector probe reported the greatest discovery of all time... or the biggest hoax?
Bob Hanson, the chief scientist of a major aerospace corporation, has made an incredible discovery. Video images from the space probe he created reveal a wrecked alien spacecraft adrift in the Asteroid Belt. The military enthusiastically embraces an investigation of the extraterrestrials, remarkably indifferent to the inconsistencies that begin to emerge in the data. It's almost as though someone doesn't want the gaps in the story to be exposed....
Undeterred, Hanson keeps digging - and finds much more than he had ever bargained for. As the mystery deepens, only one thing remains certain: His unknown opponents play for keeps.

Worth listening too

Would you consider the audio edition of Probe to be better than the print version?

Yes. I would like to read the book

What was one of the most memorable moments of Probe?

The way the end was, had to listen to entire book to see the whole plot/story

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, most books take me 3-4 days to listen too

Any additional comments?

Have a couple people that narrate, have a man speaking for the men, women speaking for women. It does not seem real sometimes, loose the concentration of the story when a man is pretending to try to sound like a women

A thematic bait and switch

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Likely more for the techno mystery conspiracy types, than for the lovers of hardfirst contact stories.

Has Probe turned you off from other books in this genre?


What three words best describe Johnny Heller’s voice?

adequate, clear, crisp

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

The book is a bit dated as a techno thriller (no email and vcr vs dvr etc). It had a good start as a "first contact" story, but then devolved into a conspiracy drama...
