New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown—“the best military writer in the country” (Clive Cussler)—is back with Starfire,  a masterful military thriller that explores a future all too possible and all too close: the weaponization of space.

With the death of his heroic father, bomber and space warfare veteran Patrick McLanahan, Bradley McLanahan must now fly solo, leading a team of young engineers designing Starfire, the world’s first orbiting solar power plant.

Starfire will not only deliver unlimited and inexpensive electricity anywhere on planet Earth, it can also transmit power to the moon, and even to spacecraft and asteroids. It’s a crucial first step in the exploration of the solar system, and Bradley and his team are on the cutting edge.

But U.S. president Kenneth Phoenix’s plans to militarize and industrialize Earth’s orbit sparks an arms race in space that eclipses the darkest and most terrifying days of the Cold War. Before he can prevent it, Bradley and his team are caught at the center of a battle that threatens to become an all-out global conflict for control of space.

    Rushed the ending. It felt like things were left up in the air. I feel let down.
  • Very good read, albeit out there a bit

    The general is one of my favorite characters. Great Science fiction Star Wars action. I have never been disappointed by a DB book, I have read them all. Being from Buffalo makes it that much better.

    Very slow book. Too much personal buildup of Brad boys and his confused loved life Resurrection in too unbelievable Insufficient action and drama. Bad show for Dale Brown who typically has great books
