Synopsis

When a nuclear missile launched by a rogue North Korean faction explodes in space, the resulting shock wave destroys most of the worlds satellites, throwing global communication into chaos. U.S. military satellites, designed to withstand such an assault, show that two more missiles are sitting on launch pads in North Korea, ready to be deployed. Faced with the threat of a thermonuclear attack, the United States has only one possible defense: Able One. ABL1, or Able One, is a modified 747 fitted with a high powered laser able to knock out missiles in flight. But both the lasers technology and the jets crew is untested. What was originally a training flight with a skeleton crew turns into a desperate race to destroy the two remaining nukes. Will Able Ones experimental technology be enough to prevent World War IIIespecially when it becomes clear that a saboteur is on board? Able One is a timely thrillride by one of science fictions most respected novelists.
