THE UNIVERSE: POPULATION 5,000,000,000
IT'S A LONELY PLACE OUT THERE
We are alone in the universe. We have faster than light travel. We've been looking for over 1,000 years, and there is simply nothing out there. The universe is a magnificent, but sterile, wilderness – and it all belongs to us. Maybe we should consider ourselves lucky.
That's the received wisdom, anyway. A new expedition, investigating a mysteriously aborted mission 27 years earlier, is about to turn that wisdom on its head.
Another classic space adventure from the author that brought you 'Moonfall, Ancient Shores, Eternity Road' and 'The Engines of God.'
"The heir to Asimov"

This book is pretty typical McDevitt, although it's a one-off and does not appear to be set in exactly the same universe or timeline as his well known Alex Benedict and Priscilla Hutchins books.
This book is the U.K. edition. It is also published in the US under the name Infinity Beach
The book was in very good condition.
