Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher
A war of nerves. Amid the frozen volcanic rubble of northern Iceland, an ancient mystery is solved. In translunar space, an asteroid's orbit is cunningly shifted. And on the Moon, spokesmen for Earth and the Settlement Worlds threaten each other across the conference table. Geologist Garrison Morrow finds himself entangled in a web of deceit, sabotage, and betrayal, as two sides struggle for incredible wealth - and the survival of Earth itself. For on the Lunar Farside, a weapon is nearing completion. Thousands of ranked lasers wait in the darkness with the power to strike and destroy any point in the Solar System. With such a device, Earth could dominate the Settlement Worlds forever. But Earth does not yet control the Farside Cannon.
