Out of Sight by Martin Granger
About The Book
When rogue junk collides with a television satellite 22,000 miles above the Earth, blind cosmologist Harry Stones approaches Film Director Nathalie Thompson to make an investigative documentary.
Undeterred by Harry’s lack of sight, their quest leads them from the peaks of Arizona to a mile-deep mine in Yorkshire, and finally to a Launchpad in Kazakhstan.
As more and more satellites keep falling out of the sky, their curiosity turns to fear. Forewarned of the possible outbreak of World War Three, can Harry and Nathalie prevent the space collision of all time?
I don’t think a mystery based in the space can be any better!
I can understand that scientific books are not for everyone, for some people, the research and informative part of the book is boring. But I think that it’s a very important part of the book, without it, the detail is lost and the reader can’t rely on anything. Possibly that’s why I loved so much this book, is not only a good and twisted mystery but with some scientific details and information that makes you want to know more about the theme, to discover the “boring” part of the science.
As you can see, I really enjoyed “Out Of Sight”, I was really intrigued with the plot and it didn’t disappoint me a little. It remind me the books I read when I was younger, with different characters around the world that doesn’t seem to have any connection between them till they have, and then the world collapses! (In this case, the sky.)
This is not the first story from the film director Nathalie Thompson, she should be known as intelligent, brave and fearless. When she thinks there’s a story she can tell that someone is hiding she will not let go till the end, even if she has to risk her life with it. In this adventure she will have a blind cosmologist on her side, that will relate all the difficult details of the sky and why it’s so dangerous that satellites are colliding without a reason for it.
That’s all I’ll tell about the plot, because you have to read this book, it’s gripping, addictive and interesting! What more can you need in a book?Are you ready for “Out of Sight”?
