THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Hijack, Betrayal, Murder -- The Ultimate Suspense
In this classic Cold War novel, Payne Harrison straps you in for a techno-thriller ride as the superpowers square off to control the strategic high ground of space.
Crippled and silent, the Intrepid orbits the earth. On board is a military payload so secret that only the most senior defense and intelligence officials know of its existence. But as Space Command mounts a mission to rescue a crew they fear is dead, a spy satellite eavesdrops on an astounding transmission between the shuttle and a ground station deep in the heart of the Soviet Union.
An SR-71 Blackbird spyplane is scrambled to brave the full fury of the Soviet air defense forces, and confirms a horrific suspicion. The shuttle and its irreplaceable payload are under Russian control!
“Well researched and expertly written.”
-- New York Times
“Run, do not walk, to the bookstore.”
“ZOWIE! Storming Intrepid cost me a night’s sleep.”

Author of Final Flight
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A native Texan, Payne Harrison admits to having a "jaded past" as a newspaper reporter. He holds B.A. and M.A. degrees from Texas A&M and an M.B.A. from SMU, and served as an officer with the U.S. Army in Europe.
His journey to being a New York Times bestselling author started with his sending an excerpt of his book STORMING INTREPID to a New York publishing house, unsolicited and without an agent. That led to a multi-book publishing deal, an appearance on the TODAY show, hitting the Times list, and a paperback auction.
He has had a dual career as a novelist and a forensic litigation consultant, which has required him to use "both hemispheres of the brain."
He and his wife live in Dallas, Texas.
