About this title:

Synopsis: [This is the MP3CD audiobook format.]

Award-winning author Ben Bova turns out another science fiction hit full of intrigue, scandal, and excitement.

Ross is an assistant professor of astronomy at a western university. His wife recently died in an auto accident, leaving Jake alone and bitterly unhappy.

Leverett Cardwell has been a father figure to Jake, a mentor since Jake was a high school student. He convinces Jake to meet Franklin Tomlinson, a wealthy playboy type who plans to challenge the incumbent Christopher Leeds in the upcoming race for the US Senate.

Jake becomes Tomlinson's science advisor and--at Cardwell's suggestion--pushes the candidate to back MHD, a new way to generate electricity efficiently and cleanly, even using the state's abundant resources of high-sulfur coal.

But there are powerful forces backing Senator Leeds, and they do not want MHD to succeed. Jake becomes involved in political intrigue, a couple of steamy love affairs, and several murders.

MHD stands for magnetohydrodynamics. MHD power generators are real; powerful political forces have prevented their use by the electrical utility industry.

About the Author: BEN BOVA, six-time winner of science fiction's Hugo Award, is the author of over one hundred works of science fact and fiction. A former editor of Analog and former fiction editor of Omni, he is also a past president of the National Space Society and the Science Fiction Writers of America. He lives in Naples, Florida.
