Editorial Reviews

Actor Robert Lansing brings his crisp and dramatic style to this white-knuckle tale of a daring space rescue. Originally published on the eve of the first Space Shuttle launch, the story concerns a manned hypersonic jet transport vehicle launching a shuttle into space from the edge of the atmosphere (the original plan for the Columbia). Disaster strikes, and the shuttle must take the manned craft into orbit, while another shuttle is launched to save the crew. Author David C. Onley (now the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario) brings his love of aerospace into the gripping story, which is sure to delight space adventure fans.

Publisher's Summary

Fact and fiction combine in this dramatic story of a space shuttle that goes perilously wrong. With the shattered craft locked in a fatal orbit, the crew running a desperate race against time, mission control mounts a last ditch rescue attempt that must not fail. The result: a stunning account of rescue in space that grips to the very last moment.
