WOW! As usual this author just blows me away. I only understand about half of the technical stuff but the human interactions seem so honest and descriptions are so realistic I am on the edge of my seat nearly from the first page. Don't miss this one....it's a duzzy!
This is one of Tess Gerritsen's best books ever. As always, she really develops her characters; in this case, astronauts and others involved in NASA, the International Space Station, and the space program. When a scientific experimentin space goes terribly wrong, it is fascinating to learn how space and ground crews handle life and death situations while experiencing a myriad of human emotions. Into all of this is woven interesting facts about how it feels to blast off into space, and what it's like to live on the space station for an extended period.
This is her best one yet. A gripping story with characters that are real. Having worked in NASA for years I appreciate the research that was put into this story...it all sounds right on the money. Terrific book; I hated to get to the last page.
