Pierre Bardou is a prisoner in space, an exile to an artificial satellite.which functions as a political prison. This bizarre, forsaken prison has its own cruel and arbitrary rules. To make room for each incoming inmate another has to be executed. Bardou's fellow prisoners are close to insanity when he comes up with a terrifying solution to their misery.

He proposes that they "spacejack" International Space City--a much larger satellite resort for the rich and beautiful, built to serve as a political oasis for all the modern earth nations.

The attempt works, but as frustrations mount and tempers seethe, Bardou's fellow prisoners threaten holocaust to the ISC if their demands are not met. Soon ISC engineers, led by Lee Powers, retaliate, attacking the spacejackers with nitrous oxide. Violence erupts in an explosion more hideous than the mushroom from a hydrogen bomb.
