    I was lucky to receive a reviewer's copy from the author for this book. This book has both a lot of good parts and some not so good. The premise of the book is that there was an additional Apollo mission to the moon in the mid 1970's (Apollo 18). During that mission, NASA lost contact with the moon module and no further contact was made until it splashed down on Earth days later with the inside of the capule "fried" with three burnt bodies inside.

    Flashforward to the present and Nate Cartwright, son of one of the Apollo 18 astronuats gets a desperate call from his brother Peter to pick him up at the airport. Peter tells him he is being followed by bad people. When Nate meets Peter he tells him he has been investigating documentation from the Apollo 18 flight and has proof that the capsule that was recovered, was not the capsule that was sent up.

    When they get home they are beset on by some bad guys who give them a warning to stop looking into the Apollo 18 mission. Nate and Peter are not deterred and decide to locate their brother Matt for help. Matt is some sort of secret operative living in hiding who had been declared dead several years prior. Matt wants to help his brothers learn what happened to their father and they go in search of answers. Having ignored the bad guys' warnings they are now pursued by the bad guys.

    Now what was really good about the book. The author spends roughly a third of the book telling the story of what happened to the Apollo 18 crew on the moon and this part of the book is very compelling and these pages fly by really quickly for the reader. Now for the not so good. The rest of the book is kind of boring and seems to copy from a lot of other stories. Matt turns out to be a type of unstoppable Jason Bourne and he seems to get weaponry and explosives out of thin air. We have seen a lot of this before in Die Hard and Rambo movies.

    Had the book been solely been the story on the moon, I could easily have given it five stars. The rest of the book brings down my rating to three stars.
