The amazing space race!

The aliens are ignoring us, dropping in to visit Saturn at relativistic speeds and then taking off without a glance our way. The rival nations of earth in the year 2066 start their engines and race to Saturn to see what the alien visitors are up to, and to see if they have left any alien valuables lying about unsecured or unwatched. This is a good old fashioned hard science thriller with realistic and engaging characters, I enjoyed it all the way to Saturn and back. The science is pretty nearly plausible based on what we know today. You’ve got to love a book where the good old USA fields a vessel for the Saturn run christened the USS Richard M. Nixon.  A must read if you grew up on classics like 2001: A Space Odyssey or if you enjoyed more recent fare like The Martian. This book is not meant for fans of Sandford’s Lucas Davenport thrillers.
