2025. Entrepreneur Julian Orley opens the first-ever hotel on the moon. But Orley Enterprises deals in far more than space tourism: it operates the world's only space elevator, connecting the earth with the moon and enabling the transportation of helium-3, the fuel of the future. Now Julian has invited twenty-one of the world's richest and most powerful individuals to sample his lunar accommodation, in the hope of securing the finances for manufacturing a second lift. Meanwhile, on Earth, cyber detective Owen Jericho is sent to Shanghai to find a young female hacker, Yoyo, who has been on the run since uncovering information that has placed her in grave danger. As Jericho closes in on the girl, he finds increasingly concerning links to Julian Orley that suggest the lunar expedition is in real and immediate danger. Limit is an epic thriller balancing incredible scientific, historical and technical detail. Schatzing's 2025 extrapolates convincingly from what is known to be possible today, portraying humankind's ingenuity as both its greatest asset and its biggest flaw.
