Meanwhile, a sinister satellite orbits the Earth, preparing to strike a very precise target. Once again, International Rescue are called, but things don’t go to plan. With John Tracy missing from Thunderbird 5 and Alan Tracy under attack in Thunderbird 3, the International Rescue team faces one of its most deadly adversaries as it come up against the power of Soltan’s Space Mirror…
The adrenaline keeps pumping with the second story, Thunderbirds: Blazing Danger, by Alan Fennell, and adapted by Nicholas Briggs. In it, Lady Penelope and her faithful butler Parker make their latest visit to Tracy Island, and are keen to experience a rescue mission. Reluctantly, Jeff Tracy agrees to them taking a test flight in Thunderbird 2. But fiery events in Canada soon overtake them, and International Rescue’s British agents find themselves flung into a full-blown danger zone, packed with peril and treachery.
