(From the publisher):
Escaping the nightmare world of the 'Octopus Emperor' in their homemade spaceship, the Starstormers are threatened by a new danger. In the dark reaches of space they come across an immense abandoned spaceship, which appears to have come from Earth. Its field signal reads: 'Plague ship! Keep away!'
But it may contain equipment Starstormer needs for her journey, and the four children decide to go on board. There they discover the ghost ship's hideous secret -- too late. For now Starstormer cannot escape the other ship's gravity pull... They are bound on a headlong course of self-destruction, destination -- the sun!
