Shady deals and forcible cryogenics keep the tension mounting in this hip new near-future novel from the Hugo Award-winning author of Tranquility Alternative and Orbital Decay. With its near-space setting, techno-adventure theme, and rock'n'roll style, it will appeal to both science fiction and mainstream readers.It Was One Hell of a Blackout. William Alec Tucker III was living the high life, spending Daddy's money on all the sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll a spoiled rich kid like himself can get his hands on. Then one little DUI-type miscalculation behind the wheel and BAM He's knocked into the middle of the next century, literally.Waking up a hundred years later in a space colony owned by an extremely wealthy developer, Tucker suffers from total amnesia. As he fights for each shred of memory of his previous life, he stumbles upon a top-secret operation aimed at bringing more deadheads from the past century to the space colony. He may have been irresponsible and undisciplined in his last life, but he will need all the resourcefulness and courage he can muster to thwart the schemes afoot in this one.
