Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vernon Dunham's friend Floyd Bellamy has returned to Augusta, Kansas after serving in World War II, but he hasn't come back empty-handed: he's stolen a super-secret aircraft right from under the Germans. Vernon doesn't think it's your ordinary run-of-the-mill aircraft. For one thing, it's been buried under the Arctic ice for hundreds of years. When it actually starts talking to him, he realizes it doesn't belong in Kansas — or anywhere on Earth.

The problem is, a lot of folks know about the ship and are out to get it, including the Nazis, the U.S. Army — and that's just for starters. Vernon has to figure out how to communicate with the ship and unravel its secrets before everyone catches up with him. If he ends up dead, and the ship falls into the wrong hands, it won't take a rocket scientist to predict the fate of humanity.

Review:

"[A] real tour-de-force by a top-flight talent." Booklist

"If Lake's prolificacy with short stories is any indication, we should have plenty more novels to look forward to, and it will be a pleasure to watch his career continue to take off." Locus

Review:

"Lake is an up-and-coming sf writer to watch." Library Journal

Review:

"From start to finish Lake channels the talents of the great writers from the Golden Age of science fiction. This book is just flat-out fun." Bookslut.com

Review:

"If the Hardy Boys stayed up half the night reading Astounding Magazine by flashlight, this is what they would dream after they turned out the light." Jerry Oltion, author of Anywhere But Here
