With Polaris, multiple Nebula Award-nominee Jack McDevitt reacquainted readers with Alex Benedict, his hero from A Talent for War. Alex and his assistant, Chase Kolpath, return to investigate the provenance of the cup. Alex and Chase follow a deadly trail to the Seeker – strangely adrift in a system barren of habitable worlds. But their discovery raises more questions than it answers, drawing Alex and Chase into the very heart of danger.
Jack McDevitt is a former naval officer, taxi driver, customs officer and motivational trainer. He is a multiple Nebula Award winner and finalist who lives in Georgia with his wife Maureen.
“‘Why read Jack McDevitt?’ The question should be: ‘Who among us is such a slow pony that s/he isn’t reading McDevitt'”? – Harlan Ellison“Superb storytelling.” – Library Journal“Ideas abound in McDevitt’s classy riff on the familiar lost-colony theme. The novel delivers everything it promises with a gigantic wallop.” – Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)“Perhaps the best pure storyteller working in the field today.” – Washington Post Book World
