This is a science fiction story by Sidney Sheldon. I was not sure that I would like this book because I had never read science fiction books before. Well like most of his books he is the master of words. This was a story about a guy named Robert Bellamy a US Navy Commander who was assigned to find 11 people who saw the crash of a weather balloon. Every time he finds a person they turn up dead. Robert Bellamy starts to uncover why people are dying around him and what the 11 people really saw. This book was action pack form the beginning to the end. This is one of my favorite books.
