Mission Earth Volume 5: Fortune of Fear audiobook
The Voltarian invaders are getting down and dirty … in the deadliest of games.
The price: Planet Earth.
Voltarian Royal Officer Jettero Heller has heart, nerve and a quick mind on his side. His archenemy Soltan Gris has cunning, ruthlessness and a devious plan on his. But what neither of them has is money—and without that they may as well pack up and go back to Voltar. Because as every earthling knows—no pay, no play.
Heller’s solution is a weekend in Atlantic City, where he puts a new spin on gambling. He’s got a foolproof system, guaranteeing that he’ll win every bet he makes.
Gris, on the other hand, has found an unexpected source of income. His body. Turns out there are certain women, with a very perverse sense of humor, willing to pay to play with him.
Into this world of dirty money, dirty tricks and dirty games, the wildest of wild cards is about to change everything. Countess Krak is back—and this voluptuous Voltarian, condemned murderess and love of Heller’s life could prove to be the key player in coming to grips with a Fortune of Fear.
Performers: Thomas Toner, John Beach, James Hartman, Anne Gartlan and Timothy Jerome.
“The adventure, colored by broad strokes of satire, is written with a vigor.” —Publishers Weekly
L. Ron Hubbard not only broke all the rules but blazed a new literary path when, in August 1981, after less than eight months of writing, he completed the monumental 1.2 million-word bestselling saga Mission Earth. Working with exceptional speed, discipline and skill, he produced a remarkable interweaving of deftly plotted action, adventure, intrigue and espionage, all seasoned with scathing social satire.
“He breaks all the rules.… The old master has created a new genre and a veritable blockbuster … and moves the art of science fiction into a new realm of entertainment as well as education.” —The Herald
