ABOUT THE BOOK: In 2072, mining on the moon has become commonplace and necessary for survival. Without the lunar helium-3, earth cannot recover from the environmental disaster it has created over the decades. Former marine Caden Dechert is the chief of the U.S. mining operation on the edge of the Sea of Serenity. When a bomb kills one of his diggers on Mare Serenitatis, the veteran races to solve the first murder on the moon. As Caden and his team uncover the truth, they realize that the struggle for economic control of the lunar material between two global powers can make lives on the moon expendable. Interesting quirks and divided loyalties flesh out this first novel in which sf and mystery intersect in a well-crafted plot.
