Able One (Bova, Ben)

Can an experimental defense system stop North Korean missile strikes? When a nuclear missile launched by a rogue North Korean faction explodes in space, the resulting shockwave destroys the world’s satellites, throwing global communication into chaos. The US military satellites, designed to withstand such an assault, show that two more missiles are sitting on the launch pad in North Korea, ready to be deployed. The United States has only one possible defense: Able One, or ABL-1, a modified 747 fitted with a high-powered laser able to knock out missiles in flight. But both the laser’s technology and the jet’s crew is untested. Will Able One’s experimental technology be enough to prevent World War III—especially when it becomes clear that a saboteur is on board?
