Countdown in Spidertown continues the story of 13-year-old Mitch Marchand, who discovers that the tiny, alien mechanical spiders he thought he had destroyed the previous year have rebuilt themselves. They have re-started their mission to build a machine that will enable beings from a distant star to “move in” and settle Earth, whether we like it or not.
Mitch and his shape-shifting alien friend must once again disrupt the plot – this time with the help of the President of the United States! Working with a police-officer buddy and Mitch’s brainy girlfriend, they must make sure that a US satellite launch from an Air Force base in California goes off as scheduled. And that’s something only the President can do. Launch the rocket ... and save the Earth!
