Publisher's Summary

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.

    "State of the art Tech"

    Very well written excellent book you will not be disappointed, all of the characters that you were supposed to love you did ;the characters that you were not to like came through. you could see a sequel to this coming because the plot has not finished.

    "could have been far better"

    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.

    "Outstanding nail biting thriller!"

    I wish Dale would write 2 of these a year! Nice to see Brad as a developing story line to carry the saga into the future! Well done Dale, thanks.

    "Poor!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story was unrealistic and not well researched and the narrator sounded like he was reading the script from a cartoon.

    "Jumped the shark"
    Any additional comments?

    Too many attempts to "tug at the heartstrings," and way too corny.
    Fonzie is in the house.
