Power Failure (Jake Ross #3) - Ben Bova

Award-winning writer Ben Bova takes on the power-players in D.C. in Power Failure, the taut near-future SF thriller and sequel to Power Play and Power Surge.

Starring Jake Ross, science advisor to Senator Frank Tomlinson, the two continue their complex power maneuvers to force the United States into embracing real energy independence through solar power generation technology.

Dr. Jake Ross came to Washington to try to make a difference, but instead, he's learned the only way to get something really big done in Washington, assuming your ideals survive the corrosive atmosphere, is to gather really big power.

And Ross has decided to shoot for the moon.

The Power trilogy combines the political thriller with nuts-and-bolts near future science fiction. Bova's vision of a future powered by solar satellite transmission is tantalizingly within our reach.
