Über diesen Titel


"A stunning success...A literally out-of-this-world chess game of nuclear proportions."
What begins as a routine voyage of a space shuttle carrying Star Wars technology, turns into a harrowing nightmare in outer space when a Russian agent siezes command of the vehicle. The President is prepared to use everything from stealth bombers and SR-71 Blackbirds to untested space fighters, as this precendent-shattering confrontation hurtles toward its tension-crackling climax.
"Harrison has created a most believable scenario, with an amazing series of twists and turns....Run, do not walk, to the bookstore."

From Publishers Weekly:

With its evil-empire depiction of the Soviet Union and obsessive emphasis on the latest and best American military equipment, this first novel owes a heavy debt to Tom Clancy, but manages to carve out its own niche in the technothriller genre. In the author's version of the near-future, the lame duck American president (all but identified as Lee Iacocca) is using the revived space shuttle program to deploy the "Star Wars" defense system. Meanwhile, certain powers in Moscow, beset by Kremlin infighting and conspiracy, see their government's chance for military parity eroding and resort to a desperate measureplanting a psychotic Soviet-trained agent on the U.S. shuttle crew delivering the Star Wars payload. When the spy murders his fellow astronauts and radios Russia, NASA begins a race into space to destroy the shuttle before it reaches enemy hands. Harrison's prose is only serviceable and often much worse; he runs on for pages about a telescope or a bomber, but doesn't describe a major character beyond calling him "very big, very black and very, very smart." But his plotting is better, gathering speed as it goes and saving some effective surprises for the end. 100,000 first printing; $100,000 ad/promo.
