Back cover text

Terror from Space

The pirates of Boskone raided at will, menacing the whole structure of interstellar civilization. Masterminded by a super-scientist, their fleets out-gunned even the mighty space cruisers of the Galactic Patrol.

When Lensman Kim Kinnison of the Patrol found the secret Boskonian base, it was impregnable to outside attack. But a single infiltrator might penetrate its defenses — if he wanted to take on million-to-one odds!

Kinnison took them — with the future of the civilized Universe riding on his shoulders!
