Publisher's summary

Once, Dan Randolph was one of the richest men on Earth. Now the planet is spiraling into environmental disaster, with floods and earthquakes destroying the lives of millions. Martin Humphries, fabulously wealthy heir of the Humphries Trust, also knows that space-based industry is the way of the future. But unlike Randolph, he does not care if Earth perishes in the process. As Randolph, accompanied by two brilliant women astronauts, flies out to the Asteroid Belt aboard a fusion-propelled spacecraft, Humphries makes his move. The future of mankind lies in Randolph's hands.
It rocks! Don't miss any of the action in Ben Bova's Asteroid Wars series, including the second book, The Rock Rats, the third, The Silent War, and the fourth, The Aftermath.

Critic reviews

"Bova gets better and better, combining plausible science with increasingly complex fiction." (Los Angeles Daily News)

"The full cast, led by Scott Brick and Amanda Karr, gives a spirited performance. The characters are multidimensional.... Other members of the cast, including producer Stefan Rudnicki, each add to a fast-moving and engrossing story." (AudioFile)
