Gully Foyle, Mechanic's Mate 3rd Class, is the only survivor on his drifting, wrecked spaceship. When another space vessel, the Vorga, ignores his distress flares and sails by, Foyle becomes a man obsessed with revenge.

But, as he works out his murderous grudge, Foyle also uncovers a secret of momentous proportions.
