Attack Satellite is the story about a young scientist whose wife is kidnapped to force him to work as project director for an illicit European group that intends to design and produce a satellite for hostile military purposes. A family friend - Tom Novak - has recently taken early retirement from the CIA and offers to help the young scientist recover his wife. The pursuit takes them into several European countries where the wife is found and rescued and lost again. In the process the two men become separated and Tom Novak is captured by the illicit group. He is mistaken for the scientist and finds himself being forced to lead the group of scientists in the project and to live in close quarters with the young wife or risk being unmasked. Novak decides that he definitely could escape, but should he go alone, or also take with him the American woman, and also try to take with him the group of scientists who are enslaved in the project? It is expected that the project will take at least two years if it can be done at all, and as the events unfold the relationship with pseudo wife could become more than temporary.
