Publisher: Chicken House

Since the catastrophic disaster that killed her father and briefly made her a universal symbol of hope, Aggie has kept well under the radar. She is currently a lowly analyst on Lunar Inc's moonbase where lumite, the revolutionary - and apparently inexhaustible - energy source is mined.

As a young adult, an upsurge in terrorist activity and increasing international tension back on Earth require her to step into the public eye once again. Although she is panic-stricken, her personal discomfort pales into insignificance when she stumbles across deception and tragedy on a monumental scale.

Formulaic but entertaining, this sci-fi action thriller has some relevant and thought-provoking content about excessive consumption, corporate greed and the corrupting effects of power.
