Sting Of The Black Widow
Publisher: Books in Motion
Space stations, scattered throughout the cosmos are peopled with scientists and engineers. Cargo shuttles that leave Earth’s gravity on their own power, deliver supplies on a regular schedule. Still there are remnants of the past in rural areas that cling to the disappearing life of yesteryear. And yet, there are terrorists, reborn out of the days of Islamic al Qaeda. A reorganization, under the name of “Defenders of Islam,” has made its mark on the free world. Colonel Harmon Steele has felt the wrath of these terrorists. Accused and convicted of destroying a space station, the only way he can prove his innocence is to find the terrorists who did plant the bomb, but standing in his way is a beautiful assassin called the “Black Widow.” In the not too distant future, cars are driven in the air. Ground cars run on electric highways. Telephone poles with miles of wire are only seen in history books. Electrical energy supplies the world’s needs from satellites.
