Rogue FBI agent Andy Fisher is visiting New York City for the first time after saving it from a terrorist attack when he discovers that the only woman he has ever loved has been murdered. Armed with a fresh cup of joe and his characteristic disdain for authority, Fisher disobeys orders and begins investigating.

His former lover was a key employee of Icarus Sun Works. Her death threatens to delay plans to launch a satellite to harvest solar energy and beam it to earth as electricity. When perfected, the technology will power entire cities for literally pennies. And the energy will be clean: no more BP disasters, no more Fukushima catastrophes.

When the rocket carrying the satellite into space mysteriously explodes, Fisher learns that the sabotage is only the start of a complicated Chinese government campaign to thwart the project and steal the technology. After falling in love with the woman who designed the rocket, the irascible and over-caffeinated FBI agent must find a way to save her from assassination—and protect the satellite system from a wide-ranging conspiracy that will stop at nothing to destroy it.

New York Times bestselling author Jim DeFelice delivers a gripping thriller inspired by real-life advances in clean energy technology in The Helios Conspiracy.

Praise for The Helios Conspiracy

“A terrific tale with a whirlwind plot. Jim DeFelice has all the tools of a masterful storyteller. The Helios Conspiracy is a world-class adventure.”
—Clive Cussler, New York Times bestselling author of Crescent Dawn

“Jim DeFelice has an extraordinary imagination and a delightfully readable style; his stories sizzle.”
—Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Disciple

“The Helios Conspiracy grabs you with a great story and intriguing characters. Even the bad guys are well done. It’s fast-paced and thoroughly enjoyable.”
—Larry Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Cold Choices

“This book is a complete success with its appealing investigator, rapid-fire dialogue and convincing storytelling, which exposes the overlap between science and politics. The climax, played out on New Mexico's Indian ruins in the dead of night, could hardly be more satisfying. A breezy and informative FBI thriller with personality to burn.”
