A Robin North novel.

Publisher’s Blurb – Dust Jacket Flaps
There are no iron curtains on the Moon. Robin North and Rex Redmayne (known to his friends as ‘Carrots’) are two members of an international community of scientists on the Moon. Their closest friends are Nicholas Valinsky - a rather earnest young Russian - and Wayne Rogers, who is so obviously American in both appearance and personality.

The scientists live and work either in underground quarters or in domes on the Moon’s surface. As the story opens they are all eagerly and anxiously awaiting news of Egbert, the Venus probe.

Nick is somewhat preoccupied with his latest experiment and Wayne is planning his journey back to Earth; but, even so, they share the uneasiness which Rex and Robin feel in connection with the return of Egbert.

Too soon it becomes clear that they have good cause to be uneasy. Without time to hesitate, Rex and Robin are once again plunged headlong into a thrilling and, at times, spine-chilling adventure with the kind of authentic scientific background which only Patrick Moore, with his knowledge of astronomy and his ability to stir the imagination, can produce.

Patrick Moore has been interested in the possibilities of space travel since his boyhood, though his main interests are in the field of pure astronomy.

During the war he served in the Royal Air Force as a bomber navigator, and in more recent years has concentrated on writing. His popular scientific books include Boys’ Book of Space (translated into French and Italian), Guide to the Moon, Guide to the Planets (both originally published some years ago, and now re-issued as paperback editions) and Guide to Mars, a popular survey of what is known about Mars itself.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, and has been Director of the Mercury and Venus Section of the British Astronomical Association, as well as being associated with many foreign societies.

He is well known to millions on account of his monthly astronomical programme on BBC Television, The Sky at Night.
