|Plot Summary of The Ganymede Club|
It has been 5 years since the end of the Great War in the solar system which caused billions of deaths because of the development of new and more lethal weapons. Lola Belmont and her younger brother fled Earth at the beginning of the Great War for the relative safety of Ganymede. Lola is now a haldane, a psychotherapist who uses advanced mind scans and drugs to cure mental problems. One of her patients, Bryce Sonnenberg, is troubled by recurring memories of events which could not possibly have happened during his life. Lola's efforts to cure him will attract the attention of the members of the mysterious and powerful Gannymede Club who will stop at nothing, including murder, to prevent her from finding out the truth.
