Six-time Hugo winner Ben Bova brings us a gripping political thriller on the cutting edge of science and technology.

Dr. Jake Ross came to Washington to make a difference. As the science advisor to a newly elected freshman senator, Jake has crafted a comprehensive energy plan that employs innovative new technologies to make America the world’s leader in energy production while simultaneously boosting the economy and protecting the environment. The facts—and the science—are on Jake’s side, but his plan soon runs afoul of entrenched special interests, well-funded lobbies, cynical bureaucrats, pork-barrel politics, and one very powerful US senator.

To keep his plan alive and secure a sustainable future for America, Jake needs a crash course in the way Washington really works. Everyone keeps telling him that his plan has no hope of succeeding, but Jake is determined to prove them wrong even if it kills him … something that certain hostile parties may be all too happy to arrange.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An idealist from Montana takes on the Washington machine in this near-future novel. Jacob Ross came to D.C. to help freshman senator Frank Tomlinson write a comprehensive energy plan that will help the country deal with climate change and prepare for the future. He’s got the ideas, and he’s got the passion. What he doesn’t have is any idea how to get things done in this town. But he’s about to get a crash course in politics—the dirty kind.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Avid fans of master narrator Stefan Rudnicki might want to listen to this audiobook…In his usual basso way, he adds subtle touches that distinguish the characters, set the scenes, and generally attempt, with greater or lesser success, to engage us with the story. He portrays one mobster particularly well.”
