Two science fiction masters—Jack McDevitt and Mike Resnick—team up to deliver a classic thriller in which one man uncovers the hidden history of the United States space program…
“Houston, we have a problem…”
Formerly a cynical, ambitious PR man, Jerry Culpepper finally found a client he could believe in when he was hired as NASA’s public affairs director. Proud of the Agency’s history and sure of its destiny, he was thrilled to be a part of its future.
But public disinterest and budget cuts changed that future. Now, a half century after the first Moon landing, Jerry feels like the only one with stars in his eyes.
Then a fifty-year-old secret about the Apollo XI mission is revealed, and he finds himself embroiled in the biggest controversy of the twenty-first century, one that will test his ability—and his willingness—to spin the truth about a conspiracy of reality-altering proportions…


“McDevitt and Resnick take us along on a well-written ride through all sorts of back-door deals and hidden secrets before they tell us what really happened…as they rewrite history in a way that doesn’t conflict with what we think we know.”—Florida-Times Union

“The apparent cover-up conspiracy at the heart of (the novel) is unpeeled back layer by layer through and elaborate series of plot twists and turns.”—Jessup Press Sentinel 

“The authors expertly crank up the tension and maintain it throughout via a suite of thoroughly believable characters.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
