Publisher's Summary

What lies on the dark side of the moon could change the course of humanity forever.
When a Chinese rover discovers an alien technology on the dark side of the moon, it is up to Richard "Rock" Crandon and his NASA team of scientists and engineers to devise a way to return before the Chinese and Russians.
Forced to deal with bureaucratic oversight and a complex team of personalities, Rock Crandon pushes his team to their limits.
With pressure mounting, the world is pushed closer to conflict and war as the NASA team finds itself seriously behind in the newly initiated space race. The future of mankind, its ideological and technological advances are at stake, as the world's super powers race to discover what lies on the dark side of the moon.
Who will get there first, and at what cost?

Modern-Day Space Race Science Fiction

I liked the idea of the space race to the moon from the description and I definitely wasn't disappointed with my decision to purchase this book. The writing and the story really delivered a great listening experience.

The book begins with a Chinese moon rover being disabled by a powerful signal from the surface of the dark side of the moon. Analysis of the signal and it's strength leave only one possibility: An extraterrestrial source.
The three major space powers, China, Russia, and the United States begin a race to build a spacecraft and be the first to reach the alien artifact on the moon.

The book is full of science, espionage, engineering, and adventure. The powers must not only figure out how to reach the moon first but also how to prevent sabotage from one of the other powers.

Mark Boyett has been one of my favorite narrators. He has narrated several other books series that I have listened to and he was definitely another motivation to purchase this book. Great performance.

This book was good enough that I didn't want to put it down. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

A Must Read.

I read and listen to a lot of books, with sci-fi and mystery thrillers (Agent Pendergast) being my drugs of choice, so I'l am not a novice to Audible. In my humble opinion this book is on par, if not above "The Marian." The plot is well thought out and plausible. The action is steady and not over powering. You are left on the edge of your seat and may find yourself overfilling your dog's bowl or shushing your spouse. The best part is Salvador keeps you intrigued and wanting more. Questioning, what if? You are not sidetracked by character building. Salvador stays true to the story and displays very good research and subject knowledge.
I highly recommend this book to any and everyone, particularly lucky fools new to Audible. This book will definitely get you hooked!
