The 18th book of the series. Like many people, Tom Swift-and his father, Damon-have dreamed of the days when the personal jet backpacks we've heard about since the 1940s become reality.

When a movie director from Hollywood comes to Tom to create the real thing-he demands reality in his science fiction films with special effects-it intrigues the young inventor enough to see what he might create. It's a lot harder than it first appears!

He must convince the director that his plans to have a 1940's period piece with leather jackets and bullet-nosed SCUBA tank-shaped rockets has to be updated to match what he believes might be deliverable as a real device.

The suit is hijacked by the stuntman and ends up shooting him into space making necessary a search and rescue mission.

In the end, it is up to Bud Barclay to save the day and fly the suit for the film. But, a sudden attack might be sending him on a collision course with death.

Can Tom rescue his best friend and save the movie?
