Read by Gary Dikeos

Earth has been ravaged by galactic disaster-but the real devastation is yet to come. The end draws nigh? The year is 2053, and Earth has barely recovered from the Alpha Centauri supernova that destroyed much of the planet's infrastructure. Now the supernova's residual effect-a storm of high-energy particles-is racing toward it, and an international effort has been launched out of the Sky City space colony to save the planet. But the controversial plan to build a giant protective shield is falling dangerously behind schedule. A series of unexplained murders has disrupted the Sky City workforce, so much so that a brilliant but monstrous criminal has been enlisted to track down the Sky City killer. Then more startling news arises. Evidence indicates that the supernova was deliberately engineered and that the lethal particle storm will arrive sooner than anyone expected. But who-or what-tried to destroy the Earth? And will the answer come in time to save it from its final apocalypse?
