Overview

New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown—“the best military writer in the country” (Clive Cussler)—is back with Starfire,  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 world’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. It’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 Phoenix’s plans to militarize and industrialize Earth’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.

Not up to Dale Brown's standards, many places where he lost me in BS about what the women are wearing or what the characters are doing in a hotel. Lot of wasted space and time, then the book leaves you hanging on what happened to the space station and crew. Was war declared, who won, what happened to the Russian, Chinese, and American militaries. Its almost like a novel about Obama, the important parts are missing at the end.

The possibility of this haappening makes you think. The best part is that a lot of the technology he talks about already exists.

This book took way too long to take off. Nothing significant happened until around page 280. But then it did get hot. As another viewer said, what happened after the big, brief space war?
