Synopsis: International intrigue, action, adventure and suspense wrapped around a moon landing.
Power abhors a vacuum. After NASA abandons its plans to return to the Moon, New Hampshire native and global entrepreneur Harold Hewitt steps in to fill the void. Rejecting the notion that the exploration of space must be reserved to government, Hewitt establishes Lunar Materials LLC to prospect for lunar platinum ? platinum needed for fuel cells that will help mitigate global warming. Hewitt sees himself as an old fashioned Yankee trader, touting his lunar ambitions as an altruistic endeavor undertaken in harmonious collaboration with global partners. His opponents view Hewitt as a Yankee traitor selling out his country in pursuit of profit.
A well orchestrated media and marketing campaign culminates in unprecedented worldwide television ratings as Lt. Commander David Anders, an expatriate naval aviator, leads an international crew to the lunar surface on-board PGM-1, the world's first fully reusable lunar lander. Hewitt?s ambitious plans, however, threaten powerful interests and when unexpected trouble strikes PGM-1, the entire world watches and wonders whether they will soon witness another first ? the first humans to die stranded on the barren lunar surface.
