His former lover was a key employee of Icarus Sun Works. Her death threatens to delay plans to launch a satellite to harvest solar energy and beam it to earth as electricity. When perfected, the technology will power entire cities for literally pennies. And the energy will be clean: no more BP disasters, no more Fukushima catastrophes.
When the rocket carrying the satellite into space mysteriously explodes, Fisher learns that the sabotage is only the start of a complicated Chinese government campaign to thwart the project and steal the technology. After falling in love with the woman who designed the rocket, the irascible and over-caffeinated FBI agent must find a way to save her from assassination—and protect the satellite system from a wide-ranging conspiracy that will stop at nothing to destroy it.
New York Times bestselling author Jim DeFelice delivers a gripping thriller inspired by real-life advances in clean energy technology in The Helios Conspiracy.
