Sea of Crises

Marty Steere. Penfield Publications, $2.99 e-book (314p) ISBN 978-0-9854014-1-2
In this exciting contemporary thriller, Nate Cartwright, an attorney-turned-consultant, gets a disturbing call from his brother, Peter, at two in the morning. Cryptically, Peter tells Nate he's at LAX and "they" are after him. When the brothers meet up, Cartwright learns that Peter's fears of being followed stem from his investigation into the tragic ending of NASA's last manned mission to the moon, Apollo 18. Their father had been one of the astronauts making the journey, and, while walking across the lunar formation known as the Sea of Crises, he saw something that prompted him to say, "That shouldn't be here." That ominous remark was his last transmission, and shortly thereafter his spacecraft plummeted to Earth, splashing down with three charred corpses inside. Decades later, Peter's probe into what really happened has stirred powerful forces—and now he and his family are at risk. Steere's assured prose is compelling, and the book's intriguing plot will keep readers turning pages until the very end.
