Baker & Taylor
After the death of her mentor, space industrialist Dan Randolph, pilot Pancho Barnes finds herself battling Randolph's ruthless old rival, Martin Humphries.

McMillan Palgrave
Visionary space industrialist Dan Randolph is dead-but his protégé, pilot Pancho Barnes, now sits on the board of his conglomerate. She has her work cut out for her. For Randolph's rival, Martin Humphries, still wants to control Astro and still wants to drive independent asteroid miners like Lars Fuchs out of business. Humphries wants revenge against Pancho-and, most of all, he wants his old flame, Amanda, who has become Lars Fuchs's wife.

Brimming with memorable characters and human conflict, rugged high-tech prospectors and boardroom betrayals, The Rock Rats continues the tale of our near-future struggle over the incalculable wealth of the Asteroid Belt, the richest source of raw mineral wealth known to humankind. Before it ends, many will die-and many will achieve more than they ever dreamed was possible.

The Rock Rats ----
by Ben Bova c - 2002 / ? ----

This story builder is a good Read

The story is gripping and intriqing as well. Dr. Bova built a plot of the ages in the astriod belt and the future of his planned story line. ---- An enjoyable read that is hard to stop or put the book down. ----

Enjoy!
