The Long Way Home - Poul Anderson

Also published under the title No World of Their Own.

They had followed orders, reached the stars, and now were bound back for Earth with a visitor – a strange star-born being they thought would make an interesting curiosity back home. They did not suspect that in this creature they were bringing a spark that could set their planet aflame.

Though they were to find themselves unwelcome strangers when they landed, their weird cargo proved their passport – until he escaped. And then to save their very lives, the star-travellers had to join the desperate search for the unearthly Saris Hronna, knowing that if they did not corner him first, it might mean the end, not only of themselves, but the Earth itself!
