Publisher's Summary

On the verge of extinction, only the gravest imaginable crime against humanity can save it....

A bold new plan seeks to ignite a new Sunspot over Greenhouse, saving the habitat domes crucial to the survival of the Solacian people. But a secret clouds this symbol of much-needed hope: Human space is contracting at a startling rate, threatening to wipe out all living worlds - including Earth. The only answer lies in the hands of the founder of the planet Solace: Oskar DeSilvo, seemingly returned from the dead to save the worlds his frauds had doomed to destruction. But as the work begins, agents of the Chronologic Patrol step in to prevent interference with the past - even at the risk of dooming humanity.

Thwarted at every turn, DeSilvo and his onetime nemesis, Anton Koffield, propose one last wildly grandiose idea - one final, desperate gamble. But if the only choice lies between madness and certain catastrophe - is there any choice at all?

Good Series Closer

Great closer to the book series, I own the print books and was very impressed that the audio book as the characters sounded similar to how I'd imagine them when I first read the books. I am a heavy sci-fi reader and the author of this series was first introduced to me with his work on the Star Wars Universe books. When I found this series originally it was a impulse read from my public library. Ofcourse they didn't have the other two books so I just had to go out and buy the other 2...
