Overview

Moonpool: A Novel by P. T. Deutermann

I remembered it from high school chemistry, one of those experiments where we made hydrogen. It was more of an acidic sensation on the palate than a real smell, but I recognized it. The pile of spent fuel at the bottom was beginning to outgas. Next would come the fire to end all fires. . . .

A private detective working in Wilmington, North Carolina, is found dead in a gas-station restroom, apparently poisoned. But when her body sets off radiation alarms in the pathologist’s office, suspicion falls on the nearby Helios nuclear power plant, a heavily guarded facility with supposedly failsafe procedures.

As the FBI, local police, and the power plant’s own security team investigate, ex-cop Cam Richter, head of the agency that employed the dead woman, begins his own inquiries. What was his detective investigating? And how could one person be poisoned by radiation without others being exposed?

Cam soon finds himself up against powerful forces that will stop at nothing to keep the plant’s problems secret. The most vulnerable part of Helios is its “moonpool”—the radioactive storage pond that cools spent but volatile reactor fuel and must be kept completely full. Racing against time, Cam discovers an inside threat, which will use the plant’s own systems to begin an unstoppable, disastrous sequence of events.

The Moonpool is a terrific thrill-ride, filled with insider details about the ultimate terrorist threat and how it might unfold.

A beutiful black and gray she cat stepped foward and gracefully flicked her tail. "With this life, i give you wit. Use this life wisley, as you will need it to lead your clan. You will be cunning and wise, and a quick descision maker. And sometimes, those decisions could either put your clan to great risk, or save it from eternal suffering. Be well, be strong,be wise" the she cat pressed her nose against his and sent him a shock, quick as lightning, painful, but full of meaning. She stepped back, and her eyes glinted before dissapearing into the ranks of starclan.

Darklight came in, almost enchanted by the waters of the moonpool. She dared not disturb the other cats and kept her gaze below eye level. All she did was sit and stare at the water, not wanting to call out to StarClan

Dawn shall fall and the deputy of thorns shall reign. Darkness will grow stronger and the bat will thrive. Blood shall meet the fire in battle and some of the fire will be extinguished.

As the lives washed over her, she felt an intense burning in her soul, but also a soothing sensation. She dipped her head to the StarClan cats, her gaze darkening as AmberStar spoke the prophetic line. Then, she awoke. She got up, trotting off to her clan.
