Publisher's Summary

Once, Dan Randolph was one of the richest men on Earth. Now the planet is spiraling into environmental disaster, with floods and earthquakes destroying the lives of millions. Martin Humphries, fabulously wealthy heir of the Humphries Trust, also knows that space-based industry is the way of the future. But unlike Randolph, he does not care if Earth perishes in the process. As Randolph, accompanied by two brilliant women astronauts, flies out to the Asteroid Belt aboard a fusion-propelled spacecraft, Humphries makes his move. The future of mankind lies in Randolph's hands.

What the Critics Say

"Bova gets better and better, combining plausible science with increasingly complex fiction." (Los Angeles Daily News)
"Stefan Rudnicki, producer and one of the performers, has picked his readers well....The listener has no difficulty picturing the scenes and character interactions as the book wanders across a landscape divided among an ecologically ravaged Earth, spaceships, the moon, space stations, and a few asteroids out in the Belt."
