Book Summary

Wyman Ford and a team of scientists must figure out how to destroy an alien doomsday weapon aimed at Earth, and the only tools at their disposal are the a handful of weaponless machines— the Mars Orbiter, a lander and a few satellites—not much to work with, especially since they only have 60 hours to save the planet. By the best-selling author of Blasphemy. 300,000 first printing.
