Summary:

Six-time Hugo winner Ben Bova brings us a gripping political thriller on the cutting edge of science and technology.

Dr. Jake Ross came to Washington to make a difference. As the science advisor to a newly elected freshman senator, Jake has crafted a comprehensive energy plan that employs innovative new technologies to make America the world’s leader in energy production while simultaneously boosting the economy and protecting the environment. The facts—and the science—are on Jake’s side, but his plan soon runs afoul of entrenched special interests, well-funded lobbies, cynical bureaucrats, pork-barrel politics, and one very powerful US senator.

To keep his plan alive and secure a sustainable future for America, Jake needs a crash course in the way Washington really works. Everyone keeps telling him that his plan has no hope of succeeding, but Jake is determined to prove them wrong even if it kills him … something that certain hostile parties may be all too happy to arrange.

    Not recommended. High yawn factor. Rambling plot. Some cut-out characters especially the girlfriend. A pity because the idea was good.
