A new science fiction adventure from William Shatner—famous for his role as Captain Kirk on Star Trek—about the intrepid, eighty-year-old FBI deputy director Samuel Lord and his quest to stop the Chinese from using a weapon that, unknown to them, could destroy the earth. In the year 2050, the United States sends the FBI to govern its space station, the Empyrean. Under the command of former fighter pilot and FBI field agent Samuel Lord, the space based “Zero-G” men are in charge of investigating terrorism, crime, corruption, and espionage beyond the Earth’s atmosphere and of keeping an eye on the rival Chinese and Russian stations. During the Zero-G team’s first days in space, a mysterious and beautiful scientist, Dr. May, shows up to the Empyrean claiming that important research has been stolen from her lab on the moon. Her arrival suspiciously coincides with timing of a tsunami that destroys part of the coast of Japan, and her unusual behavior makes Director Lord think that Dr. May might know more about the disaster than she’s letting on. Meanwhile, the Chinese space station has gone mysteriously silent. In this gripping space adventure, Director Lord must connect the dots to discover who or what has caused the tsunami as well as subsequent disasters and how Dr. May and the Chinese might be involved.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A tightly paced blend of police procedural, military SF, and space opera, set in an intriguing near-future world.” Publishers Weekly
“It can’t be coincidence that the protagonist at the center of this space opera cowritten by eight-five-year-old Shatner is eighty-year-old Sam Lord. He’s the rule-bending chief of the FBI unit on the space station Empyrean in the year 2050. Shatner is the perfect fit for the charismatic action hero. And Shatner proves equally adept at animating a wide range of other characters—from Lord’s pansexual deputy to a cyborg Israeli business tycoon and Lord’s love interest, a beautiful scientist who is partly responsible for the runaway weapon that is threatening both Earth and space. Those accustomed to Shatner’s trademark bombastic roles will be amazed at the nuance he employs in this fast-paced production. Listeners will be eager for the upcoming sequel.” AudioFile
