A tense, thrilling new novel marks the long-awaited return to the Seafort Saga by David Fientuch, recipient of the prestigious John W. Campbell Award.

U.N. SecGen Nicholas Seafort is the most powerful man on Earth. And although his battles are of words and politics - the colonies vs. the Church Patriarchs; his beloved Navy's funding vs. the despised Enviro lobby - Seafort remains a strict, uncompromising, driven man who keeps his own counsel and walks alone.
Until the night a terrorists bomb rips his life apart....
Even as the Senate and the Navy demand that Seafort declare martial law, Seafort's son, Philip, confronts his father with the results of his stubborn course.
Seafort has fought to protect humanity by diverting resources to ever larger, more heavily armed starships - while global ecological collapse has turned Earth into a horror of barren, ravaged countryside and toxic swamps.
But even as Seafort turns his attention to this growing calamity, he's faced with a coup d'etat - an orbital assault on Earth that threatens the future of mankind.
Now, unarmed, with only civilians and children at his side, Nicholas Seafort is going to war to save Earth form the enmies within. And this time, the cost will be higher than even Seafort's iron can bear.
