Nick isn’t smart. He’s not brave. He’s selfish. He’s an asshole, but he’s about to embark on a journey that will change not only his life but the lives of everyone on the planet.

The United Nations is thrown into chaos when an alien spacecraft is discovered buried beneath the ice in Antarctica. With no one nation able to lay claim to the craft, a multinational effort is undertaken to salvage the vessel, which is estimated to have crashed several hundred thousand years ago. Rather than leaving key decisions to hostile governments or their armies, a jury is established to represent the average global citizen, being selected from the five permanent members of the UN Security Council. Their job is to review findings and guide the process of discovery.

First Contact is a series of standalone novels that explore humanity’s first interactions with extraterrestrial life.

Peter Cawdron

Peter is an Australian science fiction writer, specializing in making hard science fiction easy to understand and thoroughly enjoyable. His FIRST CONTACT series is topical rather than character-based, meaning each book stands alone. These audiobooks can be listened to in any order, but they all focus on the same topic—First Contact with extraterrestrial lifeforms. In this regard, this series is akin to BLACK MIRROR or THE TWILIGHT ZONE
