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.
