This novel is the second book in a trilogy about the global impact of an antigravity device. In the first novel, The Red Box, the Flynn brothers, Matt and Murray, invent a toaster-size device that makes the host platform weightless. The first application is a seaplane, named Baldie after the bald eagle, manufactured in partnership with Mercedes-Benz. In that Indiana Jones-type thriller, the Chinese attempt to steal the game-changing technology. But in the end, the powerful Red Box rewarded President Werner with his second term, a $1 billion check to the Flynns, and the potential to create a million jobs in America.
This novel applies the Red Box to an innovative personal air vehicle called a Turbopod, or T-Pod, a member of the AceloPod family of vehicles, which completely alters global transportation. Working again with Mercedes-Benz, the brothers perfect a weightless, all-electric, safe, personal flying machine-a century and a half after the Wright brothers' fifty-nine-second first flight.
