BIRD OF PREY by Tom Grace: An enormous global corporation run by a ruthless woman willing to commit high-tech murder to stop her competitors is the basis for this techno-thriller than evokes Ian Fleming or Robert Ludlum. Astronaut Kelsey Newton, fiancé of former Navy SEAL Nolan Kilkenny is in danger, so Nolan sets out to find the source of the black space ship carrying a high-powered laser that has been knocking out space shuttles and communications satellites. If it sounds like 007 in Moonraker, it does follow that same plot fairly closely. Overall a crisp, enjoyable read with lots of action and just enough love interest.
Back of book: In space, a technological nightmare orbits the earth, stalking its prey. Sheathed in a black multifaceted skin, a secret all but invisible against the darkness of space, the killer satellite hunts with one of the deadliest weapons ever created. It is Zeus - and like the god of myth it hurls lightning from the heavens.
