When the CEO of Masterson Aerospace, the leader in galactic development, commits suicide, a vicious power struggle threatens to destroy the gains Masterson has made.Publisher's Note: Moonbase--the first permanent human settlement on the Moon--was the dream of ex-astronaut Paul Stavenger. Although he did not live to see his vision become a reality, his widow, the powerful corporate head Joanna Masterson Stavenger, ensured that Moonbase would become a bustling center for manufacturing and technological development vital to all humankind--on Earth and on the Moon. Here is the story of Moonbase: the power, passion, and personalities that drive the project to fruition--and threaten to destroy it. Industry reviews: In Bova's fiction e.
