Publisher's Summary

A 21st century U.S. aerospace company has developed the first permanent human settlement on the Moon, made possible by major scientific breakthroughs, particularly in the practical use of nanotechnology (microscopic machines which can build structures on the moon using lunar raw materials as well as correct damage done to the human body by illness and injury.) But conflict within the company's founding family and growing protests against the technology from radical environmentalists and religious fundamentalists on Earth put Moonbase in danger of closure. Former astronaut and brilliant visionary Paul Stavenger must prevent the project from falling into the wrong hands as a power struggle leads to murder and the near destruction of Moonbase.

Classic Bova

I'm a Bova fan as I like the combination of SCIfi with the relationship storylines that Bova writes. This is up to his usual standard and it seems you either love or hate Rudnicki. Personally I like. If you're a SCIfi fan you're in trouble if you don't !
