Read July 22nd to 27th, 1999
This installment in the series was a bore. There was no point
to the exploration of Halley's Comet, especially as it was done in such
a shallow manner -kind of like Kevin J. Anderson does with Star Wars
books. And we are given the hint that there might be life there,
too. The stuff on Europa was bland, though there were a couple of
interesting twists. The "mystery" of the diamond mountain was not
well done, as the references to the diamond consortium were vague to those
who don't know it. And wasn't Chris the main character's son, not
grandson, in the last book?
