Publisher’s Blurb – Dust Jacket Flap
Young Barry Nolan motor-cycling through Ireland dashes to the rescue of the crew of a crashed helicopter.

With this dramatic accident he is swept into a series of adventures with a party of scientists who are making their own rescue bid on the planet Venus.

Patrick Moore, the eminent astronomer so well known for his television series, has written in Planet of Fire a rivetting story drawn not only from his brilliant imagination but also from his scientific knowledge of the problems which will be encountered by interplanetary travellers.
