Publisher Description

In the future as Bova here imagines it, Earth is an ecological nightmare, and humanity may well go the way of the dinosaurs. But overhead orbits salvation. A vast metallic island in space, the Trikon station conducts genetic research too risky to be done on earth—research that could save the planet.

Yet Commander Dan Tighe discovers that the Trikon’s major project is espionage. Its international crew is split into warring factions; its scientists—consumed by greed, lust, and drugs—run the lab for their own gain. Murder, intrigue, and romantic jealousy threaten to sabotage the station’s crucial work.

Only Commander Tighe can save the Trikon—and only Trikon can save the earth.

  • “Thrilling!”

    - James A. Michener
  • “A novel that soars.”

    - New York Daily News
  • “Frighteningly real…Will startle and surprise the reader.”

    - Alan Bean, Commander of Skylab II
  • “There is mystery, murder, spying, romance, and sabotage—something for everyone…The day-to-day routine of life in space is believable and descriptive, from the logistics of eating, sleeping, shaving, and elimination to the scientific research itself. A very readable story that’s truly a ‘technothriller.’”

    - School Library Journal
  • “For fast-paced action/adventure geared toward fans of hard SF, this is a good selection.”

    - Library Journal
  • “Fast and furious.”

  • “Stuffed with authentic detail: a rather glutinously absorbing chunk of near-future hyperreality.”

    " Ben Bova is almost always worth a read. Good blend of science and fiction. This story just had way to many characters and plotlines that were not going anywhere. A shame because the life on a space station stuff was intriguing and the global disaster via plankton extinction was interesting. "

    " Count on Bova for reliably entertaining books, like this story that takes place on a space station full of espionage. "
