Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
The Federal Bureau of Security sends one of its top agents to Earth from the Moon carrying a spool of microfilm of incalculable value. He arrives disguised as a commercial traveller, but quickly transforms into Captain Gilead—explorer and lecturer. There are people on earth who will go to any length to relieve him of the film—and they are not deceived for long by his disguise. They begin to close in on him when time intervenes.

This story of interplanetary espionage is "the Dean of Science Fiction" at his very best. In "Assignment in Eternity" Robert Heinlein, Hugo and Nebula award winner, has seldom been more compulsively readable. Sit back, and take a trip with the master into elsewhen.
