Great book. I couldn't put it down. She made everything seem completely possible. It was a little predictable, but that didn't really take away from my pleasure in reading it.

Tess Gerritsen is one of my very favourite authors and she didn't disappoint me with this book. Entertaining and educational. I learned much more about astronauts and space flight.
