"Accomplished space historian Cassutt offers an intriguing account of Russia's space program as a gripping, atmospheric Cold War saga. . . . Tingling with political tension and ringing with authenticity, this dark, edge-of-your-seat thriller gives a launch-by-launch account of Russia's abortive struggle to keep abreast of NASA and win the space race." - "Publishers Weekly" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author

Cassutt is the author of two previous mystery thrillers set within the space program, "Missing Man" and "Red Moon." He lives in Los Angeles, CA. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

As a way of getting a feeling for life in the USSR, this kind of works, although there is little new in here that you couldn't find out from (for example) Jamie Doran's much shorter biography of Yuri Gagarin (for example, space geeks might want to know a lot more about how the lander would have worked).
It's not exactly Tom Clancy in the thriller stakes, with flimsy two-dimensional characters about whom I struggled to care towards the end, and the "detective hunt" is a bit of a half-hearted afterthought.
