New York Times best-selling author Dale Brown - “the best military writer in the country” (Clive Cussler) - is back with Starfire, a masterful military thriller that explores a future all too possible and all too close: The weaponization of space.
With the death of his heroic father, bomber and space warfare veteran Patrick McLanahan, Bradley McLanahan must now fly solo, leading a team of young engineers designing Starfire, the world’s first orbiting solar power plant.
Starfire will not only deliver unlimited and inexpensive electricity anywhere on planet Earth, it can also transmit power to the moon, and even to spacecraft and asteroids. It’s a crucial first step in the exploration of the solar system, and Bradley and his team are on the cutting edge.
But U.S. president Kenneth Phoenix’s plans to militarize and industrialize Earth’s orbit sparks an arms race in space that eclipses the darkest and most terrifying days of the Cold War. Before he can prevent it, Bradley and his team are caught at the center of a battle that threatens to become an all-out global conflict for control of space.

The story was unrealistic and not well researched and the narrator sounded like he was reading the script from a cartoon.
This was a good book, however was a little all over the place. The book fell flat in some areas. What could have been a great book is only good. I will say this is another book where the bad guys just seem to keep on winning over and over again and to be perfectly honest if these events were this bold and brazen the world would have ended multiple times.
