On a near-future election eve, aging senior US intelligence officer Jeremiah Jackson is worried. Marriage a shambles, numbing caseload on his desk, and country floundering amid moral crisis and terrorist warfare, it?s Jackson?s job to hold together a disintegrating twenty-first century America. But how? With his sister-in-law mesmerized by a charismatic terrorist leader and evidence mounting daily of American involvement in his plans, Jackson must also consider the goals of industrialist Jonathan Galt. Scion of Ayn Rand?s steelmaker, Galt heads a group with plans for the beautiful but doomed space station, Ad Astra. Amid the shards of his personal life, how is Jackson to keep America from raveling at the seams? Ultimately, with the world in a tail spin toward barbarism, a grand gesture of love points the way for America to rediscover a destiny in which Jackson will play a vital role.
