In Europe, the Americans are pulling out their troops in a tide of isolationism.

Britain, torn between loyalties to America and the continent, is caught betwixt and between.

In America, a space shuttle crashes on landing, killing all but one of the crew on-board: A British man named Mike Dreyfuss, who will become vilified by the US press and protesters.

Halfway across the world, Martin Hepton, an English ground control technician watches as they lose contact with the most advanced satellite in Europe. A colleague of Hepton’s who suspects something strange is going on is signed off sick, and never comes back.

Hepton decides to investigate his friend’s suspicions and his trail leads him to Dreyfuss, the MI6, the American military, and back to his former girlfriend, Jill, who is an up-and-coming journalist with the contacts and the courage to cover the story.
