One man holds all the cards...
One-time National Security Advisor Joss Kyle barely escaped Washington D.C. with his skin intact. But when he jumps planet for Space Station Sidon, he walks straight into the most dangerous ambush yet in a winner-take-all game for control of the entire solar system.
Wanted by the insurgency, chased by agents of a corrupt senator, and hunted by an underworld boss known only as The Green Lady, he quickly discovers that in the looking-glass world above the gravity well, survival works just like a hand of cards:
It isn't whether you win or lose. It's how you rig the game.
Book 1 of The Antithesis Progression
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
J. Daniel Sawyer is a hat-wearing, obsessive-compulsive nutcase attempting to write his way out of the loony bin. He's the author of numerous novels including The Clarke Lantham Mysteries, Down From Ten, and The Antithesis Progression (which earned him a spot as a 2009 Parsec Finalist). Lacking in personal qualities things that make for respectable character (such as the ability to sit still and shut up), he's forced to channel his lack of decorum into adventures in photography, a/v production, and an unhealthy obsession with machines that go very, very fast. When not getting into other mischief, he can be heard hosting the skeptical salon The Polyschizmatic Reprobates Hour, and as the host and narrator of an array of a variety of full-cast audiobooks, all available through http://www.jdsawyer.net.Review:
"...lovingly detailed, well-written thinking man's science fiction at its best...with more twists than Chubby Checker..." --View from Valhalla
"A sweeping tale of politics, corruption, intrigue, betrayal, and murder...a fast-paced ride through a world that's too plausible to be ignored." --Nathan Lowell, author of Quarter Share and other Trader's Tales from the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper
"A lush, powerful story of hunter and prey, betrayal, rebellion, and poker. Sawyer delivers!" --Brand Gamblin, author of Tumbler and The Hidden Institute
