(From the publisher):
High on the list of U.S. astronaut candidates, Major Al Riley is suddenly disqualified when his clandestine love affair with a fellow astronaut's wife culminates in her shocking death.
But Riley is given a chance to redeem himself by making a top secret flight over a Russian missile base in the Asian desert of Takla-Ma.
Shot down by Soviet rockets, Astronaut Riley gets the full "enemy-spy" treatment - injection by weird truth drugs, an ordeal before a firing squad, and the inevitable Communist enchantress, who visits his cell to serve Party purposes and stays to serve Riley's own!
