Read full description of the books Solar:

O ano é 2000. A maré de más notícias sobre o clima e o aquecimento global inunda o noticiário. Michael Beard, cientista consagrado e prêmio Nobel de física, não parece nada preocupado. Seus interesses atuais se limitam a fantasias eróticas - concretizadas ou não -, bebida e mesa farta, de preferência repleta de guloseimas pouco recomendáveis para um homem de sua idade. Autoindulgente e cínico, Beard não se comove mais com as homenagens que lhe são periodicamente oferecidas, apesar de apreciar as quantias que costumam acompanhá-las. O governo britânico, preocupado com as repercussões eleitorais do aquecimento global, resolve criar o Centro Nacional de Energia Renovável, e Beard é convenientemente convidado para sua presidência. Em 2005, após um acidente ocasionar uma reviravolta em sua vida, Beard começa a colher os resultados de uma revolucionária pesquisa sobre o uso da luz solar para a obtenção de energia limpa e barata a partir da água. Segredos do passado, no entanto, insistem em ameaçar a prosperidade conquistada, tornando imperioso mantê-los submersos a qualquer custo.
