YOU’VE FOUND YOUR WAY IN. . .NOW DIE GETTING OUT!

Lunar Outpost MN 0012 is in the grips of techno-cataclysm.

The most complex off-world mining operation in the solar system is in danger of total annihilation, Programmed flying drones have gone berserk, turning on their masters and spreading a hideous plague of devastation and death. An unseen alien force has corrupted the powerful machines as a terrifying first act of war. The moon will fall fist. And after that, the Earth.

The Post Terran Mining Corporation needs one man to lead a suicide mission into the labyrinthine depths of MN 0012, to take the battle to the white-hot core of the rebellion. That man is Benjamin St. John--a veteran Maine flyer with nothing left to lose, teamed with a beautiful company flak and his most hated enemy. A stranded computer scientist trapped in the bowels of the moon holds the key to human survival. Her rescue is essential, and St. John is the only man good enough--and crazy enough--for the job.
