Cover blurb:
The mysterious disappearance of an archaeological team is merely the prelude to a deadlier threat for the Doctor and his companions — the Cybermen want to destroy Earth, and will use any means at their disposal. The Doctor's ingenuity is stretched to its very limits as he battles to defeat the Cyber army at any cost. But even he does not realise just how high that cost will be...
