FROM THE BACK COVER:

EVERY NINETY MINUTES THEY WERE A TARGET FOR THE REDS

The United States was tossing the parts of Project Spacehive into orbit like bits of a jigsaw puzzle, and then orbiting astronauts to fit the pieces together and make the first spaceship. It wasn’t science-fiction – just putting into operation a scheme that had been on the drawing boards since the first firings at Cape Canaveral.

But while they’d figured the mechanics involved, they hadn’t counted on an unexpected problem – how do you get any work done when you’re a sitting duck every ninety minutes for Russian rockey snipers?
