An exciting science fiction adventure from William Shatner--famous for his role as Captain Kirk on Star Trek--about the intrepid, eighty-year-old FBI deputy director Samuel Lord and his quest to stop the Chinese from using a weapon that (unknown to them) could destroy Earth. In the year 2050, the United States sends the FBI to govern its space station, the Empyrean. Under the command of former fighter pilot and FBI field agent Samuel Lord, the space-based "Zero-G" men are in charge of investigating terrorism, crime, corruption, and espionage beyond the Earth's atmosphere and of keeping an eye on the rival Chinese and Russian stations. During the Zero-G team's first days in space, a mysterious and beautiful scientist, Dr. May, shows up to the Empyrean claiming that important research has been stolen from her lab on the moon. Her arrival suspiciously coincides with timing of a tsunami that destroys part of the coast of Japan, and her unusual behavior makes Director Lord think that Dr. May might know more about the disaster than she's letting on. Meanwhile, the Chinese space station has gone mysteriously silent. In this "tightly paced blend of police procedural, military SF, and space opera, set in an intriguing near-future world" (Publishers Weekly), Director Lord must connect the dots to discover who or what has caused the tsunami as well as subsequent disasters, and how Dr. May and the Chinese might be involved.
A half-dead Singapore pirate is plucked from the Celebes Sea in the Western Pacific, setting off alarms halfway around the world in Washington, D.C.

When an empty drum from a recent drop-off is discovered near where the pirate's ship was destroyed, the Op-Center team comes to a terrifying conclusion: A multinational corporation hired to dispose of nuclear waste is selling it instead-to a most unlikely terrorist...
A collection of jokes grouped into such categories as animals, sports, computers, and worms.
The explosion of a Chinese freighter in Charleston Harbor is the first sign that someone is capping Chinese interests abroad. Now under the control of the Pentagon, Op-Center is unsure of its own future, but it must root out the cause of the attacks before the entire world is affected. Original.
In this heart-pounding science fiction adventure from William Shatner, debonaire, eighty-year-old director Samuel Lord and the "Zero-G" men are in charge of investigating terrorism, crime, corruption, and espionage aboard the space station Empyrean-and stopping the Chinese from accidentally destroying the Earth. In the year 2050, the United States sends the FBI to govern its space station, The Empyrean. Under the command of suave, eighty-year-old director Samuel Lord, the "Zero-G" men are in charge of investigating terrorism, crime, corruption, and espionage and of keeping an eye on the rival Chinese and Russian stations. NASA is conducting a top-secret project in the agricultural center of the US space station Empyrean, using microscopic robots called nanites to construct a vine that can survive in space. The plan is to grow structural material for an elevator that will reach from the Empyrean and Earth. Unfortunately, a Russian spy inadvertently causes the growth to rage out of control, not only threatening the Empyrean, but the Russian space station Red Giant. Under the guidance of Director Samuel Lord, Zero-G must identify the spy, help find a way to reverse the fast-replicating vine, and manage a form of "space zombie" birthed by the nanites. The surprising solution takes Lord and a Russian pilot on a dangerous mission to Venus-where a shocking discovery awaits. "A tightly paced blend of police procedural, military science fiction, and space opera, set in an intriguing near-future world" (Publishers Weekly), Zero-G is an exciting installment from a master of the craft.

Her alcoholic brother bounces from girlfriend to girlfriend and job to job, but always there when Sarah needs him. And Sarah herself? She lost her faith more than a decade ago, during a personal crisis. But she is dedicated to giving others the help she did not receive. Even the nun who is Sarah’s best friend cannot break through Sarah’s shield of cynicism.
But Satan can. The Devil himself rises inSarah’s office, sometimes a being of dark smoke and sometimes a creature of all-too-perfect, seductive flesh. Most disturbing is Satan’s claim that only by following him can people find real happiness.
In the Devil’s theology, God is a brutal, jealous bully. And as God and Satan battle for Sarah’s soul, Sarah comes to believe him. She forgets that he is the Master of Lies .
