A history book all the rage. Something is disturbing Kirk as he reads. That same something is disturbing Spock, even though he is on the Enterprise at some distance away. Spock comes to Kirk. A mind meld. The truth.
I am reminded of the Star Trek: Enterprise episode in which the ancestor of the Vulcan officer lives incognito on earth a long time before the historical "First Contact." How I wanted to know more of the stories of what happened to that ancestor. I felt that Pocket Books could have done a series of novels following that character, that they had missed a golden opportunity.
At any rate, I enjoyed the book. The break at the center of the book was jarring to me, like a highway traffic bump at full speed. To me the ending was not as satisfying as I might have hoped, but was good enough that I thought I might like to read other Star Trek work by this author.
