The Apollo Murders by Chris Hadfield

The Apollo MurdersThe Apollo Murders by Chris Hadfield
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Good technothriller historical yarn with an Apollo 18 mission (they really ended at 17) that is coopted by the NSA/DOD to investigate a new Soviet space station AND Lunar robotic rover. Got pretty complicated but I think he carried it off. Lots of real people (Nixon, Schleschinger, Haldeman et al) and real things (the Soviets did launch a military space station) and plenty of interesting twists and turns.

Hadfield knows his stuff, with experience in the Shuttle, Soyuz, Mir and ISS.
