The second book of the First Contact trilogy is a multiple dystopian tragedy that is set in a future Earth Corporate Federation and on a more independent Mars. A party of five people have made their first contact with aliens, but the message they received is chilling: Earth must change its ways. The party leader, Grigori Timoshenko is a Commissioner on the Federation Council, which monitors the governance of Earth’s governments and corporations, and three of the party are given tasks that will extend them and test their character flaws to the limit. Jonathon Munro, the remaining member of the party, is not given a task, but he so wants to be important and to make himself important, his only route is to subvert others. The story is of personal sacrifice, the characters’ rise and subsequent fall, economics, settling on a new and unforgiving planet, the problem of very powerful aliens, the quest for power, the improper use of power, of greed, and of pointless ambition in a dystopian future.
