The whole world is watching the first manned flight to Mars, whilst its three astronauts are plunged into a hair-raising battle for survival, within a clandestine operation involving intrigue and murder. The astronauts are ordered to participate in an elaborate charade, simulating a Martian landing as cameras roll and the entire world is their audience. The astronauts, knowing their very existence poses a threat to National Security, escape, hoping that one of them will live to expose the sensational fraud. Meanwhile, reporter Robert Caulfield is on the case.

"An excellent, if forgotten, late-seventies conspiracy thriller which takes the existent fable of the faked moon landing and runs with it." (Empire)
