Product description

From the Back Cover


Though bizarre to look at, the aliens easily make themselves understood. They hail from the Alpha Centauri system and call themselves Tosoks. Their mother ship has been damaged – the people of Earth are asked to manufacture replacement parts, with the offer of alien technology in return. It will take a couple of years. A wave of hope and joy spreads around the Earth: we are not alone!

But soon one of the aliens has been charged with the murder of TV’s most famous stargazer, thought to be the aliens’ friend. A tense courtroom drama unfolds…

And as justice is about to be served, another starship arrives from Alpha Centauri with different aliens on board, carrying news that eclipses all that has gone before.


The sense of fun and adventure SF had in its so called Golden Age … a modern sensibility … the best of both worlds’”

”Canada’s answer to Michael Crichton”
