Publisher's Summary

A breathtaking near-future thriller. From the New York Times best-selling author whose books have been downloaded more than a million times.  

A small alien spacecraft with extraordinary secrets. A mad scramble to get to it first.  

When an interstellar probe lands in the heart of the Amazon jungle, powerful nations around the world will stop at nothing to retrieve it. Because the unoccupied alien craft is sure to contain revolutionary technology. Technology that will allow the country that controls it to dominate the globe. 

With the probe hidden within the densest rain forest on Earth, traditional military power is useless. So the US chooses to send in a single operative, a man who’s been enhanced to the limits of current technology. He’ll be greatly outnumbered, and with so much on the line, not even the closest of allies can be trusted. 

But the true stakes are higher than anyone could possibly know. Because all is not what it seems, and the alien spacecraft has plans of its own....

Seeker is a fast-paced roller-coaster ride of a thriller; one that explores actual human enhancements being worked on today, along with mind-blowing concepts listeners will be pondering long after they’ve heard the final words.

Another solid from Douglas Richards

If you liked any of his other books this is worth the credit. Good mix of informative science and action thriller. Probably the best one of his books so far. Narration is good.

Started off strong, then kinda lost momentum

Several hot topics are well explored in this story. Human enhancements, advanced nano tech, physics, AI, and a fun host of others.

In the end, however, that just somehow went lame and the story fizzed out without any real climax or fun resolution. Too bad.

Tops in my First Contact list!

The is probably the authors best book yet and he has some really good ones, on the surface what is not to love you get First Contact, Super Soldiers and the Amazon jungle. That is just on the surface however their is philosophy and leaves you with plenty to think about, I love books that make you think about things and it's not often authors can do that very well these days however Douglas Richards is on top of that game right now.

awesome performance

I already read the book prior to purchasing the audible version. I still found the story riveting and heard parts that I must have skimmed past. I highly recommend Seeker as well as the rest of Douglas E Richards work!

Historical Review Included

This entertaining story was an engaging arena for a review of recent technological history. Recommend Seeker to those who have marvelled over our species' advancement or have need of its message.

Not for everyone.

Horror genre, extreme gore, not a story for impressionable minds. Kevin Pariseau is a very good narrator. I've enjoyed other books by the author, but this one is squarely in the horror and gore genre.

Shifting

My opinion of this story kept shifting as I listened to it. At first I kept wondering if some how I had downloaded the wrong book since we doing this whole thing on ISIS and terrorists. Then I got why that was there, got interesting as we progressed through the jungle. Got a little disappointed when we got into detailed explanations and philosophy as to the why. The turn of everything towards the end wasn’t totally unexpected, but it saved the story line. Wasn’t a bad book, just didn’t go where I thought it would.

Come for the story. Stay for the author's notes.

I've liked all of Richard's stories thus far but the author's notes at the end are sometimes even more interesting.

Fantastic story idea but terrible writing

The dialogue is painfully bad, as if the author has never actually heard people talk. Such a great story idea though, it compelled me to continue listening in spite of the writing.
