COMING HOME, from veteran SF author Jack McDevitt, brings together interstellar travel, an 8,000-year-old mystery, and a dramatic mission to rescue 3,000 stranded spaceship passengers . 'The logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke' Stephen King

It's 1435 on Alex Benedict's world Rimway, eleven years since 3000 passengers boarded the
Capella. The interstellar cruise ship is trapped in a transdimensional space warp, frozen in time. Just a few days have passed on board, and its inhabitants are oblivious to having lost the lives they knew. There is hope for a high-profile rescue attempt, but if it fails they may all die.

As the
Capella effort becomes increasingly difficult, Alex comes across a rare artifact dating back to the original NASA interstellar ships. The discovery arouses suspicions and Alex and his pilot Chase can uncover the truth only by returning to the museum-like planet Earth.

As Chase is pulled into the
Capella rescue mission, the entire human race watches and waits.
