Synopsis: A really smart guy, who never forgets anything, is hired to evaluate a research project in the desert for safety.
I really liked this book. I had a good guess going in where the story was going to go and it more or less went in that direction. Its hard to say what I really liked about this. Its good at being a page tuner, and the concepts are fairly creative (though it has a lot of parallels with Stargate; something even the story itself notes). The protagonist, Mike, seems a bit generic, though I did think a number of the support characters were well developed.
I'd happily read a sequel to this, and the end is clearly set up for it, so its likely we'll see one sooner or later.
