Overview

Kinky killers.

Exploding speedboats.

$2 billion paternity suits.
It’s love Voltarian-style . . . and planet Earth is feeling the heat.

Voltarian Royal Officer Jettero Heller will go to any length to protect his beloved Countess Krak. He’ll race up the eastern seaboard pursued by the entire Coast Guard. He’ll smash boats, he’ll set off bombs, he’ll fight off every paternity suit that comes his way. . . .

But Apparatus Officer Soltan Gris is just as determined to put the Countess out of commission—for good—and he’s found the perfect hit man for the job. Well, almost perfect. This particular Torpedo has one little kink. He takes a bit of an unhealthy interest in his victims . . . after he kills them.

And as if Gris didn’t have enough on his plate, wedding bells are ringing. The Voltarian stud is about to tie the knot—with two women!

Yes, love is a battlefield. But in this warped war of twisted desires, perverse passions and unholy alliances—the entire Mission Earth enterprise could soon morph into a truly decadent DEATH QUEST.

“Remember how you felt the first time you saw Star Wars? This book will do it to you again.” —ORSON SCOTT CARD

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The comic nightmare continues in book six of Hubbard's 10-volume broadside, Mission Earth. Our Dudley Do-Right hero, Jettero Heller, is having trouble starting his Everglades launching pad for the spores that will clean up atmospheric pollution. To aid him, his fiancee, Countess Krak, fakes evidence certifying him as an illegitimate son of oil baron Delbert John Rockecenter, the world's wealthiest and most powerful man. Meanwhile, Heller's nemesis, the ineffectual spy chief Soltan Gris, makes another series of attempts to end Heller's good deeds. Gris first hires a hitmanwho is killed by his own mother. Next he has his PR man go in for character assassination, and finally he files false lawsuits and criminal charges against Heller, which sends the police after him. This is every bit as tedious and heavy-handed as the first five volumes but will no doubt join them on the bestseller list. (January 15)

Meet the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
