The crash of a radioactive Russian spy satellite brings government agents, bad guys and a cast of characters together in Cold-War Alaska. Political tensions between the US and the USSR are high. The attempted recovery of the runaway satellite tangles together the lives of a high-tech Air Force recovery team, a veteran government agent and his “shadow”, and a Bigfoot-hunting writer accompanied by her flirtatious assistant. A civilian yacht, a special dog and Ketchikan locals are drawn into the fast-paced search that ultimately includes an internationally infamous Russian spy. The story is based on factual events, and the author deftly weaves these events into a unique adventure for each of the characters. Names, dates and locations have been altered to protect the privacy of the individuals involved.
A recently launched Russian satellite, our ID #S-37, is in trouble. We have reasons to believe it is a spy satellite. It's one of their latest designs and we don't know much about it. We do know that it has a nuclear power generator.
