Book description
The Kaltich invaders sell their Earthman serfs a rejuvenation process that cruelly prolongs life.

The Kaltichs also promise to share their secret for instantaneous space travel desperately needed by a barbaric, overpopulated Earth.

But decades pass and Earth is no closer to the stars. Yet the Kaltichs continue to strop Earth of its riches and its pride.

Only the Secret Terran Armed Resistance movement opposes the Kaltich tyranny. And only Martin Preston, S.T.A. R. agent, can possibly steal their secrets. If he fails, Earth will become a planet of billions of starving people - with no place to go except to their graves!

The Secret Terran Armed Resistance selects Martin Preston for its dangerous interstellar espionage: discovering the Kaltich's secrets. The last S.T.A.R. agent had failed: his neatly severed hands were returned in a box to headquarters. And Martin knows it is not only his life that depends on the his mission, it is the life of Earth itself ...
