A multinational team is sent to make first contact with sentient beings orbiting Saturn. While in transit, Earth receives a broadcasted message from the visitor's vessel stating "My sweet Satan". As expected, the powers that be decide the visitors are a threat.
The crew includes a cast of interesting characters with a focus on Jasmine, or "Jazz" as her crewmates refer to her. Jazz has undergone a traumatic incident when brought out of sleep and suffers from memory loss. Although she is a woman with a very high IQ and an accomplished astronaut, her memory only allows her to remember up to the time just before she enters university and is still living with her parents and brother. She is reluctant to reveal her mental fugue to the rest of the crew with the exception of Jason, the resident AI with a chip on his virtual shoulder for being relegated to what he feels are tasks well below his abilities.
The crew, one by one, begins to die off leaving Jasmine to crash into the visitor's vessel and then explore the inside as her spacesuit CO2 levels rise and she begins to falter. The visitors, when making contact, feel that mirroring her will put her at ease. They are masters of mirroring and this is what you need to keep in mind toward the end of this story.
Be sure to read the Author's Notes at the end. For anyone confused (and I have no idea why previous reviewers found this possible), it may help explain things in simpler terms.
For the author: Peter, a follow-up story to My Sweet Satan would be wonderful! Thank you for the entertainment!

There were elements of the story that did not quite work for me, though the afterward went some way to explaining why they were the way they were, the finale was worth waiting for though. This is definitely worth a try, the story may not be absolutely perfect in my opinion, but it makes me want to keep reading more by the author simply because I like his style.
This is the second book I have read by this author and I have already bought more.
