GPS satellites are under attack inLash-Up, an explosive thriller fromNew York Timesbestselling author Larry Bond
GPS satellites are vital to the U.S. military. They allow units to navigate confidently over trackless wastes and can direct aircraft and weapons to within feet of their targets.
When China provokes a military crisis with the United States and then starts shooting down GPS satellites, Ray McConnell, an engineer at the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, knows he must act quickly. Without the satellites, America’s military’s capabilities will be crippled and China will gain an enormous advantage in any future conflict. The only way the satellites can be protected is from orbit, so McConnell’s team of soldier-scientists must construct an armed spacecraft capable of knocking weapons out of the sky. The fate of the nation depends on their success.
