Publisher's Summary

It’s been 20 years since the first manned mission to Mars discovered a human fossil on the Red Planet.

Now, the democracies of the West are buckling under a new crisis emerging from Russia: 10,000 liberated Builders, now fully grown and no longer protected by the UN, are forced to flee. One country is ready to receive the descendants of Xinth: the Special Administrative Region of South Africa, where a lone Builder, Hortat, is running for president. The situation is unprecedented and around the world is giving rise to as much distress as it is hope for a better future for humanity.

Hortat wins but is mysteriously assassinated on election night.

To unravel the mystery, head of the Human Foundation Luther Karlhammer calls in a familiar face: former investigator Pano Hofer. He’s long since walked away from his old life as an investigator, but another name from the past, Agatha Devenworth, lures him out and draws him into a deadly plot.

Not as good as the first two

I enjoyed the first two books so much! Was super excited for the 3rd, unfortunately it did not live up to them. Felt sloppy and rushed. The ending saved the booked.

book 3 is as bad as I've ever endured.

Author hates the American way of life. His politics showed through. Disgusting character makeup did not help this story.

Loved it!!!

At the beginning I thought maybe the series was played out, but I loved this book, almost as much as the first one. It was one of those situations where I was sad for it to end as I’ll miss the Builders and A & P. Can’t recommend enough ♥️

Why can they all breathe on earth now!?!?

First 2 were pretty good. Why can they all breathe on earth all of a sudden now? Made no sense. Gave up half way.

Disappointing. Transition from #2 to #3 was very

This was very disappointing. . #2 t ok #3 was awkward and somewhat sloppy. Retelling and looping back was unnecessary and overall seemed lazy and sloppy. As a reader I felt gipped.

Stop reading this series after book 2

First two books were Mint, a rip-roaring adventure almost devoid of political slant. So, I naturally jumped straight into Book 3. I didnt make it past the third chapter or so. It became a preachy treatise on how advanced aliens would, by definition, be socialist environmentalists that were disgusted by capitalism and "western colonialism", and the evil humans were all the "right-wingers". By definition, none less! If I wanted that lecture I'd listen to a first-year social studies student. Returned.
