Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note: Hardback -The best military writer in the country (Clive Cussler), New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown, expands our knowledge of cutting-edge weaponry and spacecraft, and challenges our ideas about life and humanity, in this masterful military thriller that explores a future that is all too possible -- and all too close: the weaponization of space. With the death of his heroic father, bomber and space warfare veteran Patrick McLanahan Bradley, James McLanahan must now fly solo, leading a team of young engineers designing Starfire, the world's first orbiting solar power plant. Starfire will not only deliver unlimited and inexpensive electricity to anywhere on planet Earth, it can also transmit power to the Moon, and even to spacecraft and asteroids. It's a crucial first step in the exploration of the solar system, and Bradley and his team are on the cutting-edge. But U.S. President Kenneth Phoenix's plans to militarize and industrialize Earth's orbit sparks an arms race in space that eclipses the darkest and most terrifying days of the Cold War. Before he can prevent it, Bradley and his team are caught at the center of a battle that threatens to become all-out global war for control of space.
