Description

From the best-selling author of Fortunes of War, Hong Kong and Liberty comes this action thriller with a SF twist/.

A team of surveyors working in the Sahara happen upon an object buried deep in the rock. The object turns out to be a flying saucer and it is older than the rock it is buried in - 140,000 years old at least. Rip, a student working with the team is keen to find out as much about the flying saucer as possible. But so are many other people, including the US Military, a team working for a billionaire Australian businessman and a group of Arabs. Rip foils their attempts to commandeer the craft with the help of a disillusioned female pilot called Charley. Together they steal the saucer and Charley takes them both into orbit. Rip's plan is to take the saucer to his uncle's Missouri farm - but first he has to avoid being tracked down by everyone else.

Stephen Coonts is a former naval aviator who flew combat missions during the Vietnam War.
