Publisher's Summary

The Solar System is finally recovering from the Great War - a war that devastated the planets and nearly wiped out the human race - and the population of the outer moons, orbiting Jupiter and Saturn, is growing. On one of those moons, Alex Ligon, scion of a great interplanetary trading family has developed a wonderfully accurate new population model, and cannot wait until the newly reconstituted "Seine", the interlinked network of computers that spans the planets and moons and asteroids, comes back on line. But when it does, and he extends his perfect model a century into the future, it predicts the complete destruction of the human race.

On another moon, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence goes on, undaunted by generations of failure. And to her amazement, Millie Wu, a young genius newly recruited to the project, has found a signal....a signal that is coming from outside the solar system.

And in his new retreat on a minor moon of Saturn, the cranky genius Rustam Battacharyia is still collecting weapons from the Great War. He thinks he may have stumbled on an unexpected new one...but he’ll need to disarm it before it destroys the Sun.

    "A Most Excellent Story"

    If you have not read or listened to, the two previous books in the trilogy/series, the following will be of little use to you. My review is about the performance by Paul Michael Garcia.

    At the beginning, I was annoyed that Christine Rendel was not narrating the third book in the unnamed trilogy as she had the first two. (Her work in both Cold as Ice and The Ganymede Club is wonderful, by the way.)

    However, Mr. Garcia has turned in an outstanding performance. He has given a great depth to, most especially, the voices of Rustam Battachariya and Mord. He has given life to the words of Mr. Sheffield.

    If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Sheffield's work, you are in for a treat. He is an outstanding author of hard science fiction.

    I recommend you get both the print and audio versions of these three books, at the very least. A better move would be to get the print, electronic, and audio versions.

    Enjoy.

    "Good Story, Mediocre Narrator"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Well written, interwoven storylines.


    What three words best describe Paul Michael Garcia’s performance?

    I've read the book and I'm not sure what Mr Garcia was reading, but his pronounciation of many words is not what I'm used to. The word is 'Bat' not 'Bot' - I've read the books. I kept expecting a robot to show up everytime he said 'bot.' His performance was distracting, but the book is still good. Not sure why they went away from the perfectly servicible Cristine Rendel for the third book, but it wasn't a good choice.


    Any additional comments?

    Charles Sheffield is one of my favorite Sci-Fi writers and his books are almost always interesting and enjoyable. He manages original plots with good character development. The character development somewhat unusual for sci-fi. But so far many of his books in audio format been cursed by poor narration.
