Ships that fade into view and then disappear before they can be boarded, or ones that vanish from sight and are never seen again are standard fares among sea stories. In Firebird, Jack McDevitt's sixth entry in his Alex Benedict stories, it turns out that space has its share of such phenomena as well. Benedict's talent for unraveling mysteries gets tested here when he delves into the disappearance of a fringe scientist and possibly his own uncle, an event that takes us back to the beginning of the series.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Forty-one years ago the renowned physicist Chris Robin vanished. Before his disappearance, his fringe science theories about the existence of endless alternate universes had earned him both admirers and enemies.

Alex Benedict and Chase Kolpath discover that Robin had several interstellar yachts flown far outside the planetary system where they too vanished. And following Robin's trail into the unknown puts Benedict and Kolpath in danger.
