Overview


When NASA investigator Linda Franklin is sent to unravel a mysterious plane crash, she finds herself staring into the wreckage of an aircraft that has never existed. Her inquiry leads her through the secret corridors of power in the Pentagon to confront a dark legacy of the Gulf War: U.S. soldiers felled by the deadly effects of Gulf War Syndrome. But as she pursues the group behind these deadly mysteries, her few allies begin to disappear as quickly as she can uncover their secrets. High-level conspirators have a plan to create a new order that puts America first--by setting in motion a biological devastation that will ravage the entire world. Her only hope for avoiding her own quick, silent death is to expose their heinous pan to the light of day...before she becomes the plan's next victim.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A conventional woman-on-the-run-from-mysterious-forces plot gains new levels of obscurity in Goliszek's Rivers of the Black Moon turgid tale of high-level biowarfare coverups. Widowed NASA molecular biologist Linda Jackson is suspicious when the investigation of a mysterious plane crash is suddenly closed. After her boss is murdered, Linda and her husband's friend John Peterson undertake their own investigation. Soon, the two sleuths are off to Malaysia, where they break into a secret biochemical installation while various charactersthe president, a fanatical Army general, a group of military-industrial plutocrats calling themselves the Vanguarddeliver arias about downsizing, drugs, international unrest, NAFTA, GATT and other threats to America. Although these events occur in the spring of 1996, there's hardly any mention of the upcoming election. The writing is pedestrian at best, and the murky plot and plethora of scientific jargon will muddle most readers, who might profit by first reading the afterword. In it, Goliszek offers apparently heartfelt theories about "psychochemical warfare," government secrecy and Gulf War Syndromeincluding his contention that America gave Iraq its germ warfare technology and knowingly gave U.S. troops ineffective gas masks. Appendix not seen by PW. Mar.
