An original novel featuring the Third Doctor, Jo and UNIT.
'The Brigadier's going to shoot you, Jo,' the Doctor said grimly, 'and then he's going to shoot me. Both of us are going to die.'
The Doctor builds a machine designed to predict the future. It shows the Brigadier murdering him and Jo in cold blood. Unable to tell where or when this event is destined to occur, the Doctor and Jo decide that they must stay apart.
Jo is sent on a top-secret mission to the war-torn Arab nation of Kebiria. But upon arrival, she is immediately arrested and consigned to a brutal political prison. The Kebirians have something to hide: deep in the North African desert, an alien infestation is rapidly growing. And the Doctor and UNIT soon discover that unless it is stopped, the alien presence will spread to overrun the entire world.
This adventure takes place between the television stories Planet of the Daleks and The Green Death.
Paul Leonard is the author of the highly acclaimed Venusian Lullaby, a Missing Adventure featuring the First Doctor, Barbara and Ian.
