From the Publisher:
In this "heart-pounding" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer) aviation thriller, New York Times bestselling author John J. Nance ventures forward to 2009, taking readers on a riveting journey of life or death.

His once-in-a-lifetime chance...

Disillusioned with his life, when Kip Dawson wins a passenger seat on one of American Space Adventure's commercial spaceflights, it's a dream come true. Although his acceptance of the prize strikes terror in his family, Kip sets off, ready for adventure. But a successful launch quickly morphs into chaos -- a micrometeor punches through the wall of the spacecraft, leaving the radios as dead as the pilot.

...becomes a global fight for survival.

With nothing to do but wait for death, Kip composes his epitaph on the ship's laptop computer. Little does he know an audience of millions would soon discover his cries -- sparking a massive rescue mission in his honor. With no idea the world can hear him, his heroism in the face of death may sabotage his best chance of survival.

Annotation:
High-stakes action above the atmosphere drives this near-future thriller by bestselling author John Nance. An accident kills the pilot of the Intrepid, stranding the sole other person aboard the commercial spacecraft, Kip Dawson, in orbit around the Earth. The problem is, Kip is incapable of flying the craft home himself; he's a pharmaceutical sales rep who won his seat on the Intrepid via an Internet sweepstakes.
