A novel by

In space, there is no escape...

Astronaut Peter Bourne has been put on a mission to launch a top-secret government satellite into space.

However, the job itself is not without risk - and Bourne, following two assassination attempts, is convinced that somebody is out to get him. British security forces have been put on alert after the attempts on Bourne's life - and seasoned detective Simon Brand is summoned to protect both the astronaut and the satellite during the mission.

But when Bourne's lifeless body is found inside his spaceship upon its return from space, it appears that the astronaut's fears were indeed correct...

... And the killer has left no trace.

Things will take an even darker turn when chief technician Ben Weller is shot dead in broad daylight.

Who would want an astronaut and a technician dead?

With now not one but two puzzling murders on his hands, Brand's investigation will lead him to uncover a violent web of lies, deceit and deception ...
