I don't remember a lot of details about the book. But I remember liking it a lot.

This is one of those books where a couple people are living their normal life, yet stumble into events that sweep them into a position where they end up having to make decisions that change the whole of the political power struggles across the solar system, particularly with Earth verses everyone else.

Time hasnt been so kind to it in hindsight, but I remember loving it then. How it ties up the mass cataclysm event of 65 mya (death of the dinosaurs) with... ok I'll stop there. lol

Shiro Ishida was baddass though! Can't believe I remember that name.
