Product Description

Product Description

Kinky killers.

Exploding speedboats.

$2 billion paternity suits.
It’s love Voltarian-style . . . and planet Earth is feeling the heat.

Voltarian Royal Officer Jettero Heller will go to any length to protect his beloved Countess Krak. He’ll race up the eastern seaboard pursued by the entire Coast Guard. He’ll smash boats, he’ll set off bombs, he’ll fight off every paternity suit that comes his way. . . .

But Apparatus Officer Soltan Gris is just as determined to put the Countess out of commission—for good—and he’s found the perfect hit man for the job. Well, almost perfect. This particular Torpedo has one little kink. He takes a bit of an unhealthy interest in his victims . . . after he kills them.

And as if Gris didn’t have enough on his plate, wedding bells are ringing. The Voltarian stud is about to tie the knot—with two women!

Yes, love is a battlefield. But in this warped war of twisted desires, perverse passions and unholy alliances—the entire Mission Earth enterprise could soon morph into a truly decadent DEATH QUEST.

“Remember how you felt the first time you saw Star Wars? This book will do it to you again.” —ORSON SCOTT CARD

From the Publisher

With Mission Earth, L. Ron Hubbard created an unsurpassed
masterpiece of satire, social commentary and rousing intergalactic
adventure--full of biting insights about the condition of this planet, its
people and the institutions that make it the way it is. Mission Earth, an
unheard-of 1.2-million word novel in ten volumes, is a monumental
achievement by any literary standard.
Mission Earth has an entire galaxy for its backdrop, though the main action
occurs on Earth and the planet Voltar. The Voltarian Grand Council has
become convinced that it must send a mission to prevent Earth from
destroying itself--thus allowing the Voltar Confederacy to proceed on its
long-standing invasion plan and timetable to conquer a planet they regard
as an important future way-stop on the main invasion route toward the
center of the galaxy.
The mission is assigned to a clandestine agent, Fleet Combat Engineer
Jettero Heller. Soon after arriving on Earth, he heads to New York City
where he is determined to get to the bottom of what is causing Earth to
self-destruct, unaware that his every move is being tracked and that
powerful forces on Voltar want his mission to fail.

More About the Author

Author, humanitarian and Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard is one of the most acclaimed figures of the modern age.

In a writing career spanning more than half a century, he was both a leading light of American fiction and the author of more than 35 million words of nonfiction--the single most embracive statement on the human mind and spirit, providing the only road to total spiritual freedom.

To date, more than 250 million copies of his works are in circulation worldwide, in 71 languages. All told, those works comprise over 3,000 recorded lectures and some 5,000 writings, including nineteen New York Times bestsellers.

Accordingly, and in testament to the magnitude of his literary legacy, there are his four Guinness World Records: most published author, most translated author, the author with the most audiobook titles and the single most translated non-religious work.

Yet the essence of L. Ron Hubbard's legacy is perhaps best expressed in his simple declaration:

"I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days.

"These shadows look so thick to him and weigh him down so that when he finds they are shadows and that he can see through them, walk through them and be again in the sun, he is enormously delighted. And I am afraid I am just as delighted as he is."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Scheme of Sabotage Continues... 24 Jun 2000
By Michael Delaware - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Death Quest continues the exciting tale of the hero Jettero Heller methodically working to save Earth, and his adversary Soltan Gris who seeks to sabotage everything he does. This time Soltan hires a hit man named Torpedo Fiaccolla, a killer so loathsome even the mafia has blacklisted him! He sends his to take out the Countess Krak, Jettero Heller's devoted love. Only the scheme does not turn out as Soltan plans, and everything goes out of control! This book takes the reader violently through the hills of Virginia and then to the open sea and climaxes dramatically in the waterways of Atlantic City. Meanwhile Soltan commits bigamy, and has his plans turned all upside down by a bubble-gum popping teeny-bopper as well as many other outragious exploits involving a pig farm and tons of gold! Death Quest keeps the tale rolling forward and keeps the story alive with wild untamed adventure around every corner. The creative and unusual characters will make you smile and laugh as the story continues to unfold. Hubbard's wit and humor are constantly present in this wonderful satire and science fiction dekalogy. Mission Earth book 6 is great fun! When you make it this far into the series, you will really love this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Like the entire series so far. 20 April 2014
By Jeff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The series is entertaining despite the fact that explanations of situations become a little wordy in some cases. Due to this there are lapses in what I consider the action part of the story line, some times for a number of pages. While I understand the author wants the reader to understand the entire story line, the wordiness becomes boring at times.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever science fiction 11 Jan 2014
By Kanaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When L. Ron Hubbard set out to write this series, he wanted to write the biggest science fiction work ever written. At ten volumes, it is one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) science fiction work ever written. Brilliantly plotted, it is a delight to read. There is an element of satire running through the series. This must be one of the most underrated science fiction work of all time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good series 17 Jun 2013
By Coyote - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The series is okay but I am really not a fan of how he preaches and goes into politics with his books. If you look beyond the lectures though and just enjoy the sci fi stuff it is good.
