Douglas Hastings' passion for anything NASA drove him to analyze a treasure trove of Moon photos taken during all Apollo missions. Doug had started to believe the conspiracy theories and rumors that had swirled for years; that NASA had discovered more than just rocks on the Moon and had conspired to keep the rest of the world in the dark.

The concept for this book was good, and seemed to have at least some development. But its also very clearly a 25 year old first or second draft, that was decided to print with little to no updating or technical consulting. It probably would have been a great book if it was review , edited, and released 25 years ago, as it is its at best a marginal book that doesn't really do anything new or overly interesting.

In Alberta, Canada, at the foot of Dead Horse Mountain, a space capsule is discovered - a capsule that shouldn't exist. Thirty years earlier, Dr. Jan Lee, American entrepreneur and space tourist, purportedly destroyed this craft when he blew up the International Space Station in an act of unexplained sabotage. That event has since inspired conspiracy theories ranging from espionage to alien invasion.

I liked the book, it fairly easy to follow and the story was enjoyable. I do wish the author would have given some more explanation into the FBI agents and there abilities. I was left with she can't miss and he's an amazing fighter for no real reason. Also the ending was a little bit boring (but that could be because I always expect something amazing from this type of story) I just felt that all the lead up didn't really amount to much

Excitement is high when the crew of the International Space Station discovers a mysterious object in orbit around Earth. But something goes wrong, and contact with the station is lost. When journalist Sean Jacob gets wind of the situation, he embarks on a journey to reveal the truth, winding his way into the biggest conspiracy to ever face mankind. But are we ready for it? As Sean investigates, what he finds is scarcely believable, and he begins to doubt his decision to get involved.

The treasure: At the end of the 13th century, Chinese Emperor Kublai Khan gave an Italian merchant unfettered access to his kingdom. The traveler was Marco Polo, and his journey would become legendary. Aided by a special passport that protected him throughout the land, Polo amassed unbelievable wealth and hid it before his return to Italy. To this day, the location of his treasure remains a mystery.

I liked the book and for the most part the narrator does a go job, but his female characters all sound like valley girls. Which doesn't fit with the elite professional women in the story
