Glenn Armstrong Shepard had his sights set on going to Mars as a flight surgeon, but a training accident on the Moon left him crippled. Now he has a new plan: to be fitted with bionic prosthetics and come back even stronger.

Fate and the Space Force have other plans, and Glenn is grounded. Another doctor—his ex-fiancé—takes his place, and Glenn will have to fight to prove he can be an astronaut once more. 

When a mysterious illness takes the life of one of the crew returning from Mars, Earth must mount a rescue using an experimental, high acceleration spacecraft. The g-forces will be punishing, and no ordinary human could survive it—but Glenn Shepard is no ordinary human. This mission is his chance to finally live his dream. . . .
