Icarus Falling

David Hendricks is a former U.S. military officer trained to reverse engineer foreign technology. During a private consulting job, he is recruited by a covert operations unit specializing in recovery of alien spacecraft. They plan to bring down a UFO using a little ingenuity and lots of luck. Cory, an abductee who seeks revenge for all the years of kidnapping and insane torture, is used to lure in the aliens. Colonel MacKay, the mission commander, is an overachieving hard-nosed military expert who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. Dr. Sheila Brannan, a psychologist who specializes in terrorist organizations, uses paranormal mind games to make contact. For the laid back pragmatist Hendricks, getting along with his colleagues is the first step to survival against an alien culture fighting to keep secrets. Success could bring the greatest discovery or the worst disaster.
