Ten years ago, alien weapons platforms (AWPs) unleashed destructive nanogens on Earth and Mars, producing general chaos and the Great Die-Off. Scientist Alex Denyer, whose son was among the casualties, deactivates remaining AWPs and studies the alien technology. But when a nasty new AWP arrives, instead of being sent to study it, Alex is fired for not toeing the party line about war with Mars and blacklisted. When it becomes clear that his expertise is needed, however, an old friend of his is scapegoated for his "treason," and with two colleagues, Alex goes to study the AWP and change its course. He succeeds but is infected with human-tissue-dissolving Nanogen 17. The cure--the Omnifix--turns users into cybernetic soldiers; unsurprisingly, it changes Alex's attitudes radically. There is a conspiracy afoot, it develops, but the villain of the piece isn't Martian, as might be supposed, but a profiteering earthling. Despite lacking stylistic elegance, this is satisfying action sf, quite suitable for a weekend's entertainment. Regina Schroeder
