"In the early 2020s, two young, genius computer hackers, Elizabeth Santiago and David Schwartz, meet at MIT, where Schwartz is sneaking into classes, and have a brief affair. David is amoral and out for himself, and soon disappears. Elizabeth dreams of technology and space travel and takes a military job after graduating. Nearly ten years later, David is setting himself to become a billionaire by working in the shadows ... and Elizabeth works in intelligence preventing international space piracy. With robotic mining in space becoming a lucrative part of Earth's economy, shipments from space are dropped down the gravity well into the oceans. David and Elizabeth fight for dominance of the computer systems controlling ore drop placement in international waters"-- Provided by publisher.

I really enjoyed this read. Nice paring of SiFi with mystery and romance. Well done.

The pursuit of Helium3 - an excellent topic. This is a page-turner that is easy-to-read. Done like a bowl of chocolate-latte ice cream.

So much of high-tech piracy depended on being able to lie convincingly.
