Except one man isn't enough.

Gathering a crack team around him including a talking chimpanzee, a marauding robot and a mystic monk, John Lovell must infiltrate the enemy base and save Kestra from the Zargons!

Five Star Five is a novelisation of a script by Gerry Anderson and Tony Barwick.

About the Author
Richard James' association with the worlds of Gerry Anderson began with playing Officer Orrin in Space Precinct. Since then, he has novelised the pilot episode of Space Precinct, Demeter City, and written four new adventures for the officers of Precinct 88, Space Precinct: Revisited. His memoir, Space Precinct Unmasked, details his time spent filming Gerry's last live action series. He has also adapted a lost sit-com script from Gerry Anderson and Ronnie Cass, The Fat Of The Land, as a play for the stage. Aside from his Anderson credentials, Richard has written a Victorian detective series following the fortunes of Detective Inspector Bowman Of The Yard.

    Incredible

    The narrative of this book is far beyond anything I expected. It is clearly very well planned and incredibly executed. I found it engaging from first page to last and impossible to put down at the first read. A real MUST for all Anderfans out there who are interested in 'what might have been' and in my mind, a fitting tribute to the works of the man we loved and miss dearly. A serious and heartfelt 10/10 from this reader. Keep it up Richard, Jamie et all

    I really enjoyed this. I don't read a lot of novels, so this was fun. Excellent work Richard, I think you really nailed it. It was definitely a Space adventure reminiscent of the character driven SciFi stories of yesteryear, but it felt really new......
