    Outnumbered by the superior forces and firepower of the Syndicate Worlds, the Alliance fleet continues its dangerous retreat across the enemy star system. Led by the legendary Captain John "Black Jack" Geary, who returned to the fleet after a hundred-year suspended animation, the Alliance is desperately trying to return home with its captured prize: the key to the Syndic hypernet, and the key to victory.

    Story

    I was hooked on the first book in the series. Now I need more credits! I can't wait. The Character development really takes off in this book. You start to care for and hate various characters and wonder what evil some will resort to.

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Story

    There are several story lines that develop in this book. You have to pay attention to keep them straight. But, the way they interweave makes you want to just keep listening. Hamilton develops a complex universe that somehow all works together.

    A visionary and optimistic thinker examines the tension between privacy and publicness that is transforming how we form communities, create identities, do business, and live our lives. The Internet, he argues, will change business, society, and life as profoundly as Gutenberg’s invention, shifting power from old institutions to us all.

    Simon H. Morris says: "An important read"
    "Interesting Cut at How the Digital Age Impacts Us"

    Story

    Jeff Jarvis provides some real insight into how the digital age has had an impact on our lives thus far. However, he really gets you thinking about the future. The digital age is too new to know what the impact will be in 50 to 100 years. Public Parts provides some interesting food for thought on the historical perspective of disruptive communication technologies from the past and parallels these with what we might anticipate in a digital future.

    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

    I heard about this on the Podcast Security Now. I am hooked on it. Great read and moves at a good pace. The SciFi around space time is realistic and makes for a good story line.
