The most expensive, the most luxurious resort in the history of man. Where no request, no whim or pleasure, was denied. Where anything was possible - for a price.
The haven and the playground of only the very rich and the most powerful. It was the most amazing pleasure complex ever built - and it looked down on the Earth from an orbit 22,000 miles high.
Yet, for all its glitter, there was something ominous about Satellite City - no nation or international body had any jurisdiction there, it was a law unto itself; no one knew who owned it; or what went on within its secret council rooms.
Until one man penetrated the wall of secrecy and discovered satellite city's hidden masters.
