Coming Home provides a new addition to the Alex Benedict series and follows the antiquities dealer and his pilot as they go to earth to learn about missing artifacts. Unfortunately the artifacts have gone missing amid the planet's rising oceans and chaos, and Alex finds that not only is he confronting a mystery revolving around the artifacts' resting place, but a possible rescue of an interstellar transport ship that vanished eleven years ago. It's rare to see a combination of science fiction and mystery that does justice to both genres, but Alex Benedict succeeds, here, and the action and intrigue are splendid, promising to delight newcomers and old fans alike.
