AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Meet Jason Chaser, hover car racer. He's won himself a place at the International Race School, where racers either make it on to the Pro Circuit - or they crash and burn.

'But he's an outsider. He's younger than the other racers. His car, the Argonaut, is older. And on top of that, someone doesn't want him to succeed at the School and will do anything to stop him.

'Now Jason Chaser isn't just fighting for his place on the starting line, he's racing for his life.' (Publication summary)
