Davis Summerfield thought he was retired and living the good life, that was before he had to accept an offer he wasn’t at liberty to refuse. Interplay, a secret government agency wants him to head up their space exploration/research department. Not cooperating was not in his best interest. Not knowing what his position as head of the department entails, he is surprised when he finds out it includes an exploration mission to outer space. During the mission, he has his first encounter with the strange ships. Just before their craft, Alganon I, is pulled into the black hole, the unknown ship comes in between them and stops them from being sucked in. Why did they help? Who are they?
Davis soon learns there is an infiltrator inside Interplay, which places him in an uncomfortable position. He must find out who it is and report them to his superior, but can he trust them? With contacts from his past life, he begins an investigation of his own which only puts him in danger. What is Interplay’s role? How far will they go to keep their secrets?
Along with his staff, he discovers the missing link in the human DNA. Only, he can't tell anyone. Who would believe him anyway? What he found would change how the inhabitants of Earth would view themselves and they probably wouldn’t be able to handle it anyway.
