"Time was running out. Sadler knew that the discovery of heavy metals on the Moon could lead to a devastating war between Earth and the younger colonies of Mars and Venus. And someone in the quiet, respectable group of scientists on the Moon -- someone Sadler had to find -- was passing information to the unseen warships in outer space. . .
If war came, the Moon would be the target. But Sadler's job was to prevent that war if he could . . . while the uneasy days, hours, seconds ticked away." Clarke is in superb form here in one of his earlier novels, exploring both technical issues and social issues in a story that combines mystery, thriller, and science fiction.; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall .
