Publisher's Summary

An explorer tug captain, Alex Racine detects a damaged alien craft drifting into the system. Recognizing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make first contact, Alex pulls off a daring maneuver to latch on to the derelict. Alex discovers the ship was attacked by an unknown craft, the first of its kind ever encountered. The mysterious silver ship's attack was both instant and deadly.

Engaging characters and a great story

This is not your typical space opera, with battles and fights at every turn. the establishing story takes its time to introduce the characters and you notice the personalities develop over time. Don't misunderstand me, it's not boring. you become engrossed in the universe and engaged in the people with even supporting characters feeling fully fleshed out.
