From Nebula Award winner Jack McDevitt comes the eighth
installment in the popular The Academy series—Priscilla
“Hutch” Hutchins discovers an interstellar message from a
highly advanced race that could be her last chance for a
mission before the program is shut down for good.
Hutch has been the Academy’s best pilot for decades. She’s
had numerous first contact encounters and even became a
minor celebrity. But world politics have shifted from
exploration to a growing fear that the program will run into
an extraterrestrial race more advanced than humanity and war.
Despite taking part in the recent scientific breakthrough
that rejuvenates the human body and expands one’s lifespan,
Hutch finds herself as a famous interstellar pilot with
little to do, until a message from an alien race arrives.
The message is a piece of music from an unexplored area.
Despite the fact that this alien race could pose a great
danger and that this message could have taken several
thousand years to travel, the program prepares the last
interstellar ship for the journey. As the paranoia grows,
Hutch and her crew make an early escape—but what they find
at the other end of the galaxy is completely unexpected.
