Checkmate Publisher's Summary

Somewhere in the near future, cars are driven on electric highways and in the air on designated corridors at set elevations. Law enforcement agencies have been reorganized under new designations. International space stations have become small cities, but not quite self-supporting. Colonel Harmon Steele, test pilot for Garland Aviation and a NASA shuttle pilot, spends part of his time delivering supplies to the various stations. Terrorist threats have kept the country on alert, but when a space station blows up, the blame is put on the colonel.

Unable to prove his innocence at his trial, Steele is found guilty of murder. Steele knows who planted the bomb and finds himself in a chess match, trying to capture his opponent before Agent Krisler captures him.

    Space stations, scattered throughout the cosmos are peopled with scientists and engineers. Cargo shuttles that leave Earth’s gravity on their own power, deliver supplies on a regular schedule. Still there are remnants of the past in rural areas that cling to the disappearing life of yesteryear. And yet, there are terrorists, reborn out of the days of Islamic al Qaeda. A reorganization, under the name of “Defenders of Islam,” has made its mark on the free world.Col
