The inheritor of the "storytelling gift" (Publishers Weekly) of his namesake, Robert Louis Stevenson III with his debut novel, Torchlight, captured the enthusiasm of readers seeking tales of daring intrigue, told by a writer with first-hand knowledge of high adventure. Clive Cussler himself praised Torchlight as "A terrific adventure tale. From first to last, the action and intrigue never let up." Now this talented novelist returns with a <P>gripping new yarn destined to expand his following. Five years and several billion dollars in the making, Bright Star is a top-secret Defense Department satellite that can not only pinpoint enemy ships, tanks, planes, artillery, and missiles but also simultaneously "paint" up to 1,000 targets, coordinating a smart missile attack to clear enemy forces from the battlefield within minutes. The nation possessing Bright Star will have an impenetrable nuclear umbrella as well as an overwhelming tactical advantage on the battlefield for years to come. When the space shuttle--with Bright Star aboard--mysteriously crashes near the coast of Maine, ex-Navy SEAL Philip Drake is called in to retrieve the satellite before it can fall into the hands of the highest bidder in the covert arms market. With high tension and riveting, state-of-the-art action above and beneath the sea, Bright Star fulfills the promise of Torchlight's debut.
