The Red Dove

(1982)
A novel by

 
 
A classic Cold War spy story about the space race from the bestselling thriller writer Derek Lambert.

As the Soviet space-shuttle Dove orbits 150 miles above the earth on its maiden flight, Warsaw Pact troops crash into Poland.

The seventy-two-year-old President of America wants to be re-elected, and for that he needs to win the first stage of the war in space: he needs to capture the Soviet space shuttle. But as the President plans his coup a nuclear-armed shuttle speeds towards target America - and only defection in space can stop it.

'Writing as crisp as the Moscow winter ... the Soviet setting is magically evocative' New York Times

'Lambert, author of many intelligent political thrillers, has another in this fastpaced, complex, and timely novel. Highly recommended' Library Journal

'A most satisfying thriller with a highly dramatic finish' Publishers Weekly

Genre: Mystery
