About the Book

The development of fusion power in the small colony established on Mars leads to an explosive outward emigration from Earth to the moons of the solar system. On Earth, increasing civil unrest in Europe has led to the election to positions of authority of three strong women: Leda in Germany, Madeleine in France, and La Marquesa in Spain. With the assistance of others—including Tomiko from Japan and Hinchcliffe, with her paramilitary organization, the Legion—order is restored, at least temporarily. The lives, loves, and deaths of these women are set against a world of conflict, hope, and despair, as they struggle to maintain civilization and allow further immigration to the high frontier in the face of malevolent opposition forces.

About the Author

Hugh Cameron, born in Scotland, is an internationally known orthopedic surgeon who lives, works, and teaches in Toronto. He was one of the developers of modern joint replacement surgery. Most patients with artificial hips are walking on the technology he was instrumental in developing. He was the lead designer of many artificial hip and knee implants, some of which are currently being implanted. For more than thirty years, he and a group of surgeons crisscrossed the world teaching and demonstrating modern joint replacement surgery. He is the lead author of more than two hundred scientific papers and continues to publish, now mostly on issues related to pain. He has published two technical books and several novels of which this book is the fourth in a series about the decline and fall of the West and its possible redemption.
