Two hundred thousand feet up, things go horribly wrong. An experimental low-orbit space plane breaks up on re-entry, falling to Earth over a trail hundreds of miles long. In the wake of this disaster is the beginning of the most important mission in the history of space. The world needs energy, and Dan Randolph is determined to provide it. He dreams of an array of geosynchronous powersats, satellites that gather solar energy and beam it to generators on Earth, breaking the power of the oil cartels forever. But, the wreck of the space plane has left his company, Astro Manufacturing, on the edge of bankruptcy. Worse, Dan discovers that the plane worked perfectly right up until the moment that saboteurs knocked it out of the sky. And whoever brought it down is willing and able to kill again to keep Astro grounded. Now, Dan must thread a maze of corporate revivals, former allies, and bureaucratic hostility. Making matters worse, an international organisation of terrorists has figured out how to use the power satellite as a weapon in their war against the West. A sweeping mix of space, murder, romance, politics, secrets, and betrayal, "Powerseat" will take you to the edge of space and the dawning of a new world.
