Humans have made progress but murder and beyrayal are still around as Alex, a seeker of artifacts, and Chase, his assistant, discover along with a lost colony that succeeded-sort of.

Good sci-fi mystery. This is the fourth book by McDevitt I've read, all in the Alex Benedict series. So far all of them have been worthwhile except the first in the series.

Disappointing. The plot moved slowly and the ending was a let-down.
