Publisher's Summary

Xenogenesis is a tale of change; inexorable and inevitable. Human beings are always craving change but when it comes it is frightening.... Sometimes to the point that we would prefer death.

Pat Dalworthy is a tracker, ex-pilot cadet in space corps and a dabbler in physics. As a Tracker, a hunter of people who would rather not be found, he is the best there is in inner system and, to hear him tell it, outer system, too. One of the problems with being the best is that you sometimes get much, much more than you bargained for.

Dalworthy is in for the ride of a lifetime and more than a life-time of a ride when he is contracted by Sean McGavin, one of the wealthiest men in the solar system, to track down one of his granddaughters. She has disappeared into the lower city and she has taken something McGavin wants returned. Dalworthy is to hunt her down and come back with both the woman and the goods. He is not to stop until it is done. It is not going to be easy and he is expendable. What she has in her possession could easily spell the end of all life on Earth, maybe the whole solar system if the slightest error is made, but what she carries in her will bring an indelible change to the human species and there is nothing anyone, not even Dalworthy, can do about it. So, which is it going to be, the end of all life or a change known as . . . XENOGENESIS?

    "Not good"

    I have to agree with the previous review. The narrator is not good. The material does not seem very good either, but it is difficult to be sure given the handling of the narrator. Terrible voice actor.

    "Narrator RUINS this book"

    I have no idea if this book is well written, because I never got past the first ten minutes. Imagine a boring local newscaster reading lines from a hard-boiled detective character. That's what Mark Douglas Nelson does to this book. Nelson might be good for a non-fiction book, but he has no skill with voice characters.
