In the year 2204, tragedy and terror forced a scientific team to prematurely evacuate Maleiva III. Nineteen years later, a rogue moon hurtling through space is about to obliterate the last opportunity to study this rare, life-supporting planet. With less than three weeks left before the disaster, superluminal pilot Priscilla "Hutch" Hutchins -- the only even remotely qualified professional within lightyears of the ill-fated planet -- must lead a small scientific team to the surface to glean whatever they can about its lifeforms and lost civilizations before time runs out. But catastrophe awaits when they are stranded on this strange and complex world of puzzles and impossibilities. And now Hutch and her people must somehow survive on a hostile world going rapidly mad -- as the clock ticks toward apocalypse for a doomed enigma now called...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid McDevitt In Jack McDevitt's universe (or at least, one of them), humanity hasn't found much out there that is considered intelligent life. Apart from a race that seem ready to blow themselves apart, humans have only found ruins of otherwise sentient life. "Deepsix" is a planet that is going to be swallowed by a gas giant, and since the first mission there ended in disaster, no one has gone back. Then someone spotted ruins. Now, a group cobbled together from people who were only there to watch the collision are suddenly thrust into the role of archeologists on a planet that has only days to live... ...and when something goes wrong - can they get off in time?
