The jacket description:
The right to know...I read this book for the first time last month just after I got hooked on the Stargate SG1 T.V. series and my original review is here. I'm now into watching the second season (finished watching Message in a Bottle this morning), and everything I said about the book last time still holds true.
From the very beginning, the success of the Stargate project hinged on one vital factor - absolute secrecy. The world remains ignorant of the Goa'uld and the war being waged in space, and that's just the way the Stargate command wants it. But their secret may not stay that way for long...
A young reporter has been smuggled into the most restricted area of the Cheyenne Mountain base. He's witnessed the Stargate in action, and wants answers. But he'll get much more than a headline when Colonel Jack O'Neill and his team decide to show him exactly how dangerous the universe can be...
The book is lots of fun and seems to remain true to the characters as I see them on the show. I rather suspect it's set early in the series too, but I'm not quite sure of when. Either way, I definitely enjoyed reading it, and the story was just as good the second time. I've gone and ordered McConnell's other Stargate novels as well. Here's hoping they're just as good as this one. I'm going to have to double-check and see if I have her Highlander one already too.
Short, I know, but so's the book, and I don't want to give anything away.
