Ian Rollins has been thrown to the lions, arrested by the German Empire on trumped-up charges of piracy and expecting a death sentence. Just getting to the trial will take all of his strength and determination as he struggles to survive in a damaged dirigible some 20,000 feet in the air.
He's forced to use his engineering skill to repair the German airship, not to save his own life, but because the Germans also hold the clever Miss Danjella Tesla, a talented engineer in her own right.
The danger is real, the fear near overpowering. But even as he struggles against twisted metal and dizzying height, he has no idea of the horrific menace waiting below.
