A corrupt organization attempts to send Captain Jonas Stryker to jail to cover their ineptitude. Stryker narrowly avoids this and is hired by a dying man nominally to collect asteroids for their minerals. However, he soon finds he must stop a shadowy corporate group called The Board, who employ space piracy, terrorism, and even weaponised asteroids to overthrow the Federation government. Set in Lagrange points, space stations, the Moon and outback Australia, it is a fast-moving story with some speculative future technology. If you were interested in the NASA attempt to alter the orbit of the asteroid Dimorphos, you might be interested in this story of greed, corruption and honour, together with the science of asteroids.
