Forbidden the Stars At the end of the 21st century, a catastrophic accident in the asteroid belt has left two surveyors dead. There is no trace of their young son, Alex Manez, or of the asteroid itself. On the outer edge of the solar system, the first manned mission to Pluto, led by the youngest female astronaut in NASA history, has led to an historic discovery: there is a marker left there by an alien race for humankind to find. We are not alone! While studying the alien marker, it begins to react. Four hours later, the missing asteroid appears in a Plutonian orbit, along with young Alex Manez, who has developed some alarming side-effects from his exposure to the kinetic element they call Kinemet. From the depths of a criminal empire based on Luna, an expatriate seizes the opportunity to wrest control of outer space, and takes swift action.The secret to faster-than-light speed is up for grabs, and the race for interstellar space begins!

Excellent story - irritating sound effects
Story spoilt by sound effects
At the end of chapters the is a high pitch multi tone. The sound level of this noise is much higher than that of the narration and if you are listening through headphones can be quit painful. There is no warning as to when this will occour so you tend to be listening for, and trying to guess when, the end of the chapter is about to happen so I can turn the volume down. I was listening to the story on the train, and when the end of chapter noise happened, every body in the compartment turned to look, it was annoying them as well as me.
