Publisher's Summary

When an elite team of specialists receives a long-awaited first contact from an alien race, it’s nothing like what they’d imagined. The "gifts," from a long-dead but seemingly benevolent alien race, have been sent to help humanity defend itself against an imminent threat. It’s clear that the gifts are intended to help, but at what price?
Caught in the middle is Sam Steele, a high-level programmer and veteran with a tragic past, up against the arrogant, intransigent Colonel Eric Web, who considers Steele a loose cannon and is most concerned with giving the United States an edge in the upcoming battle.
As the team races against the clock to divine their visitors’ complex instructions, they struggle with infighting and, ultimately, the question of what it means to be human.

Enjoyable listen

This was a pretty enjoyable though predictable listen. Characters were not very developed, but the plot moved at a good pace and the narration was good. This author thankfully did not attempt to stretch out the story in an attempt to produce two books from one book of material (something that I am seeing more and more of these days), instead, he has left the door open to start an entire new chapter of the story. i will want to read that also.
