About The Book:
What really happened to the crew of Apollo 18 in the Mare Crisium, the Sea of Crises? The last of America’s manned lunar missions, it was conducted in eerie silence following the inexplicable loss of all communication with the astronauts during their first moonwalk, just after Commander Bob Cartwright’s enigmatic statement, “That shouldn’t be here.” And it ended in tragedy when the heat shield on the command capsule failed during re-entry, leaving three dead astronauts inside burned beyond recognition.

Thirty-six years later, Cartwright’s sons make a shocking discovery: The capsule that came down in the Pacific Ocean with three charred remains was not their father’s capsule. And the body they buried all those years before was not their father.

What they’ve uncovered puts the three brothers on the run, chased by a ruthless group who will stop at nothing to preserve the secret behind the fate of the Apollo 18 astronauts. The brothers will need to set aside past differences and pool their talents if they are to stay alive and unravel the mystery behind what really happened in the Sea of Crises.

Lynda's Review:

This one will hold you in suspension until the last word! Is it true, partly true, entirely fiction? I have my own theories, which I won't divulge. Don't want to sway your perception before you have the pleasure of reading this for yourself.  It's well written and the action, mystery, and character development certainly kept me entertained. Everything seems plausible, which made for some tension filled moments for me. 

~"Believe me, if it were my call, you wouldn't even get this one warning. If I were you, I'd heed it. Because, if you don't, I'll be back. And this time it'll really be your dog. And then it'll be you and your brother. You'll be last. I'll make you watch the first two." Page 25
