When corporations go to war, standard business practice goes out the window. Astro Corporation is led by indomitable Texan Pancho Lane, Humphries Space Systems by the rich and ruthless Martin Humphries, and their fight is over nothing less than resources of the Asteroid Belt itself. Fighting escalates and the lines between commerce and politics, boardroom and bedroom blur. And the keys to victory will include physics, nanotechnology, and cold hard cash.

It's a breakneck finale that can end only in earth's salvation, or the annihilation of all that humankind has ever accomplished in space. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Roy | 11/2/2013

    " An interesting view of corporations, not governments, at war. This book reinforces the "power corrupts" philosophy. Well worth reading if only for the surprise ending. "

    " I think this is the best one in the series. Some of the characters are quite well developed in this work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 7/25/2012

    " This is the finale in the trilogy that began with The Precipice and the Rock Rats. Good hard science fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 7/7/2012

    " great from the start!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crusader | 11/29/2011

    " A good read. Much more action packed than the first couple of novels in the series. The ending is a bit disappointing, leaving quite a few questions to be answered. However since there is now a fourth book in the series I think some of those will be addressed there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Drew | 10/23/2011

    " What happens when nobody asks questions "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anthony | 7/20/2009

    " An enjoyable sci-fci read. The concepts, cities on the moon, greenhouse disaster on Earth and corporations excerting insane amounts of influence, were very cool and timely.

    I would have given it a higher rating if the ending wasn't a bit lame. "
