It is WW III. The planet is almost completely out of natural resources, so the war is fought to get assets from the solar system. The enemy is winning, but Tom Raines may be the saving grace. Tom is seduced by the money, the power, and a girlfriend. But, everything he is told is not quite what it seems. What will become of the world as they know it? Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys?
This is a great book. There is a lot of action, and it leaves you wanting more. Which is good--because there is a sequel--Vortex.
