From the Back Cover

"That shouldn't be here."

Those are the last words uttered by Commander BobCartwright in September 1976, just before all communication with the crew ofApollo 18 is inexplicably lost during the astronauts' first moonwalk.  Frantic attempts to re-establishcommunications with the astronauts are unsuccessful.  Three days later, however, as NASA is scramblingto put together a rescue mission, astronomers detect a burn of the servicepropulsion system, and, on schedule, but still in eerie silence, the commandmodule begins its return transit, culminating in the welcome sight of thecapsule descending majestically beneath a trio of parachutes into the SouthPacific.

But when the hatch is opened, the navy diverstasked with assisting the astronauts into the recovery helicopter make agruesome discovery.  The bodies of thethree men inside have been burned beyond recognition, victims of a failed heatshield.  And with them has died anychance of learning the meaning of Cartwright's enigmatic last statement or whattranspired during those three blacked out days in the
Mare Crisium, or Sea of Crises.

Unfortunately, unless and until man returns to themoon, it's a mystery that will remain forever unsolved.

Or will it?

Thirty-six years later, Cartwright's sons make ashocking discovery:  The capsule thatcame down in the Pacific Ocean with three charred remains was
not their father'scapsule.  And the body they buried allthose years before was not their father. What they've uncovered puts the three brotherson the run, chased by a ruthless group who will stop at nothing to preserve thesecret behind the fate of the Apollo 18 astronauts.  The brothers will need to set aside pastdifferences and pool their talents if they are to stay alive and unravel themystery behind what really happened in the Sea of Crises.
