The U.S. Air Force sends a UFO investigation team, which arrives just minutes before a team sent by an Australian billionaire to steal the saucer's secrets. Before either side can outwit the other, the Libyan military arrives.Meanwhile, Rip has been checking out the saucer. With the help of a beautiful ex-Air Force test pilot, Charley Pine, Rip flies the saucer away, embarking on a fantastic journey into space and around the world, keeping just ahead of those who want the saucer for themselves.

What the Critics Say

"A comic, feel-good sf adventure." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Dick Hill, who is a well-respected narrator, does a superb job....Hill's commendable performance illustrates well the saying that it often is not what one says but how one says it." (Library Journal)

A Fun Read

I really enjoyed this book. I don't know why I hadn't heard of or read it before now but am glad I found it. I usually like very suspenseful thrillers and spy books. This has some government intrigue but is not your typical thriller. I actually laughed out loud more than a few times.
It was a thoroughly great read. I highly recommend it.

Reader misses the mark

Reader Dick Hill takes the wrong approach to this book, almost (but not quite) ruining it. True, Saucer could be for "young adult" readers - there's no real sex or profanity - but Hill reads it like it is a comic book. I practically expected the hero to shout, "Gee whiz, Ma... It's a real flying saucer!" If Hill had read it straight, it would have been a good adventure story without the phony Batman comic overtones.
