In 2097, Earth's survival depends on raw materials mined from the moon and asteroids. A quarter of a billion people thrive in thousands of giant colonies orbiting the Earth-Moon system, while governments struggle to keep predatorial relationships from ripping it all to pieces.
Based upon a realistic orbiting society conceived by NASA in the mid 1970's, The View From Zero delivers a pithy first person narrative of Alan Spraag an ex-American spy, working as an insurance investigator, raising his family on the giant colony of Palma Sola.
When the Japanese government dangle an assignment in front of him that could earn enough money to go back to Earth—against his better judgment, Spraag takes the job. His mission: find a missing scientist. But Spraag knows it's what they don't tell you that kills you.
As Spraag peels away the layers, he is dragged into a world of espionage and a spider web of political intrigue woven throughout colonial space, only to discover a deadly secret buried beneath the highest levels of government; a secret that many would kill to protect and others would kill to possess, and a shocking truth that will finally bring him to The View From Zero.
