Space Resources, Inc. (SRI) mines asteroids for the riches a populated Earth needs without degrading the planet. Yet there are those opposed to progress in whatever its form such as the Gaia Alliance, a front group for eco-terrorists. During a violent attack on the Moon, the terrorists steal an exploration ship, arm it, and rename it the Rock Killer.
Charlene 'Charlie' Jones of SRI security is trying to infiltrate the Gaia Alliance's cabal to find evidence linking them to the murder of her fiancé. But a run-in with the law threatens to reveal her identity to the dangerous men of the Alliance. Simultaneously, SRI Director Alexander Chun is traveling to the asteroid belt to bring a kilometer-long nickel-iron rock back to Earth orbit to mine for its valuable metals. Following him and his multinational team is the Rock Killer. Without armaments, millions of miles from help, Chun must stop those who threaten him and the lives of his crew.

Really held my Interest. Loved the play on politics too. It was pretty hard scifi and I not for kids to some of the sexuality, but well written and engaging.
I would definitely listen again! There are a lot of technical parts and story lines that would be worth going over once again.
There were a few notable parts, the stealing of the ship from the moon, shoot-out at the Gaia Alliance house in L.A. and the Final Battle.
The Final Battle between SRI and The Giai Alliance space-craft.
Rock Killer is a Great, "Good-ole sci-fi book", with just enough tech and thrills to keep You listening all through the day and/or night.
Good story - little experienced writer - terrible narrator
Yes- need a new narrator
