Two science fiction mastersâ€”Jack McDevitt and Mike Resnickâ€”team up to deliver a classic thriller in which one man uncovers the secret history of the US space programâ€¦ Early in his career, Jerry Culpepper could never have been accused of being idealistic. Doing public relationsâ€”even for politiciansâ€”was strictly business...until he was hired as NASAâ€™s public affairs director and discovered a client he could believe in. Proud of the agencyâ€™s history and sure of its destiny, he was thrilled to be a part of its futureâ€”a bright era of far-reaching space exploration. 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 starsâ€”and unexplored planets and solar systemsâ€”in his eyes. Still, Jerry does his job, trying to drum up interest in the legacy of the agency. 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 abilityâ€”and his willingnessâ€”to spin the truth about a conspiracy of reality-altering proportions...
