(From the publisher):
It is an arena stretching for billions of miles beyond the surface of the Earth. It is the object of the dreams and daring of countless men and women who have made it the last great frontier of human endeavour.
It is the setting for people like Stanley Mott, the engineer whose irrepressible drive for knowledge places him at the center of the American exploration effort.
Norman Grant, war hero and U.S. Senator who takes his personal battle not only to a nation, but to the heavens as well.
Dieter Kolff, Hitler's rocket scientist who brings his precious specialty to an America on the brink of a new era.
Randy Claggett, the lusty astronaut who meets his destiny on a mission to the far side of the moon.
Debbie Dee Claggett, the astronaut's sensual wife whose marriage can never be as important as the space program and the ambitious people surrounding it.
