When a Shuttle accident kills a world-famous basketball player, former astronaut Scott Blackstone is out of a job. Worse, he and his Citizen Observer program are vilified in the media, and he's being sued for a billion dollars. His ex-wife agrees to take the case and it begins to appear that the accident might not have been an accident at all.

Meanwhile, India and Pakistan go to war. Pakistan deploys a nuclear device high in the upper atmosphere, putting the crew of the orbiting International Space Station in imminent danger of death by radiation exposure. Only a few weeks remain to rescue the crew and there's no known way to do it, except, perhaps, for a secret project of Scott's brother, Nick.
