Synopsis: "When a mile-wide asteroid suddenly appears in orbit around Earth, frantic scientists call on veteran shuttle pilot Boston Low. His mission: to nudge the menacing new moon into a stable orbit before it causes untold destruction by smashing into the Earth below. It's a mission that leads to an incredible adventure. When Low, prize-winning journalist Maggie Robbins, and scientific genius Ludger Brink investigate the asteroid's surface, they are hurtled into a time and place of revelation, mystery, and danger: the planet Cocytus. Once home to an extraordinarily advanced society, Cocytus is now a haunted world. For the three human castaways, the challenge is to understand the secret of this mysterious planet. Because solving the mystery of Cocytys is the only hope they have of getting home again ... " — quoted from the back cover of the first Warner Books mass market printing.
