About this title


Clarke County is a huge space colony, owned by the company Skycorp and orbiting Earth in the mid-21st century. Over the years, the colonists and pioneers there have evolved a community identity. Now Skycorp want to develop their economy with tourism and this brings about trouble.

From Library Journal:

Sheriff John Bigthorn's job of keeping the peace on "Clarke County," Earth's first orbiting space colony, seems simple enough--until a frantic young woman fleeing her gangster boyfriend seeks refuge there, bringing with her a secret that holds the key to the colony's destruction or liberation. The author of Orbital Decay (Ace, 1989) combines satire with suspense in this fast-paced adventure that belongs in most sf collections.
