9780062262400 New York Times bestselling author Dale Brownâ€”â€œthe best military writer in the countryâ€ (Clive Cussler)â€”is back with Starfire, Â 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 worldâ€™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. Itâ€™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 Phoenixâ€™s plans to militarize and industrialize Earthâ€™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.
