Probe | [Edward M. Lerner]

Probe

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "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?

    no


    What three words best describe Johnny Heller’s voice?

    adequate, clear, crisp


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

    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...
