But when Pine takes up flying spaceplanes to the moon for the French lunar base project, she discovers that the project director has installed a world-threatening antigravity beam.The French kidnap Rip's Uncle Egg and force him to fly a saucer, hidden in Area 51, to the moon. Rip and Charley have no choice; to rescue Egg and save the world, they must steal the first saucer from its new home, the National Air and Space Museum, and hit the not-so-friendly skies again.

Great Political Satire with a Good Sci-Fi Story

I really enjoyed the book. Full of comments like "if we put sanctions on the French, then we must have a Wine for Food program" and "if Washington gets destroyed, we'll rebuild the capitol in Kansas - it's closer to Texas anyway".

Lots of likable good-guys and despicable bad guys spread out between Earth and the Moon.

Worth the time

Not only did I enjoy the audiobook, my son got hooked while listening for just half an hour. It will keep your attention. Can't wait for the next one in the series.
