Book Two in the Asteroid Wars-continuing the saga of the struggle for the wealth of the Solar System Visionary space industrialist Dan Randolph is dead-but his protEgE, pilot Pancho Barnes, now sits on the board of his conglomerate. She has her work cut out for her-for Randolph's rival, Martin Humphries, still wants to control Astro and still wants to drive independent asteroid miners like Lars Fuchs out of business. Humphries wants revenge against Pancho-and, most of all, he wants his old flame, Amanda, who has become Lars Fuchs's wife. Before it ends, many will die-and many will achieve more than they ever dreamed was possible.

Professional reviews

"All's fair in love and war, whether on Earth or in the Asteroid Belt. Martin Humphries continues his quest to conquer all, most especially Amanda. Amanda had hoped that her marriage to Lars would make Humphries move on. Instead it has fueled his desire to have her. This full-cast performance, led by Ira Claffey and Amanda Karr, gives a spirited delivery of a fast-moving and complex plot. Characterizations developed in Book One of the series are carried over, with the exception of the transition of Amanda from a strong, accomplished woman to a timid, simpering one. Nonetheless, the audio performance is engaging, and the performers work together with facility. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
