In 2061 Heywood Floyd the only survivor of the two previous missions returns to once again confront Dave Bowman, or what ever Dave has become, and a newly independent HAL, along with the power of an alien race that has decided Humanity is to play a place in the evolution of the galaxy whether it wishes to or not.

Another quick and interesting read. I couldn't put it down. Carries on the story of Heywood Floyd and , belatedly, Dave Bowman and Hal. The plots for all the Odyssey books have been interesting, though I knew the surprise of Mt. Zeus at the beginning of the book. I wish more had been done with Bowman and Hal.
