When Cash Harris visits his father for the first time after a 15 year estrangement, things don't go anywhere near as planned. By the end of the night, he finds himself embroiled in a plot to destabilise the government, his father has been assassinated, and he discovers a shocking truth that would have fundamentally altered his life 15 years earlier.
However, all of this pales into insignificance when, along with his best friend and ex-fiancee, he fights for his innocence and the chance to save a world they didn't even know needed saving. They uncover the truth that has been alluding mankind from its very inception. Life, the universe - everything... nothing is as it really seems.

The audio version of this book is well narrated.
I have 4 other books from the same author. Each one is held my attention until the very end.
I've never heard of this particular narrator before.
Building a new home.......
I was so glad Audible picked up this author. I hope they will make more of his books available.
I love a good book
This was my first book from Murray McDonald. It was interesting and caught my attention from very early on. Just when I thought I had it figured out there would be a major twist in the plot. It kept me guessing. What an ending!
He had plenty of humor. Great blend of thriller and sci-fi. I wish more writers would do this.
The narration was good and varied well between the characters. I would listen to Adam Verner again.
Not in the top 10, but maybe the top 25. A tricky, rather interesting and compelling offering, that has several unanticipated plot twists and turns.
Certainly to other audio book fans.
Definitely one of the better performances of the years. Brought the characters to life, and owned the story
Not really extreme, but certainly kept my interest, and I did have some chuckles and eyebrow raises.
This book definitely sneaks up on the listener, and comes with enough wrinkles and twists to keep the story fresh and engaging. Recommended highly
The overarching alien concept in the story is new and refreshing, and gives a new perspective to most things we assume in life.
But the screenplay is unexciting. The protagonists have it way too easy, are unusually lucky and seem to have supernormal power that borders on a kids fantasy story. A few disappointments thrown in for the lead characters would have made the story a lot more realistic
Narration was top notch. Full marks for that
Loved the story line. It was fresh and believable while keeping you in suspense. I found the characters to be very interesting and thought the overall product to be very entertaining.
The story line for this book is really far fetched but the action is good and I liked the characters, especially Cash and Rigs. I did find the story line at times a little unsettling.
this book reminded me a lot of the "Area 51" series by Bob Mayer where the characters aren't overly interesting or have much depth, but the listening is easy and enjoyable. i was a little bummed that it doesn't seem terribly set up for a sequel, but still well worth the credit.
Action packed from start to finish. Not as predictable an end as I expected. Would make a great film. Well read and a great story. Recommended.
