Sea of Crises Review

What really happened to the crew of Apollo 18 in the Mare Crisium, the Sea of Crises? A mission conducted in eerie silence after loss of all communications during the astronauts' first moonwalk, it ended in tragedy when the heat shield on the command capsule failed during re-entry, leaving three dead astronauts inside burned beyond recognition. With them died the answer to a great mystery: What was the meaning of mission commander Bob Cartwright's statement, "That shouldn't be here," uttered just before the loss of communication? Thirty-six years later, Cartwright's sons make a shocking discovery: The capsule that came down in the Pacific Ocean with three charred remains was not their father's capsule. And the body they buried all those years before was not their father.
 
My Review
 Wow. This was amazing ride full of twists and turns that  you don't see coming. I love when I get to read a truly awesome book that incorporates interesting history with mystery and intrigue and it just all comes together perfectly. Make sure you have time to sit and read when you pick this book up because you will not want to put it down any time soon! The space program collides with clandestine government agencies and a conspiracy that will rock your socks. The character development was great, you really get a feel for the Cartwright brothers and become attached to them and what's happening to them. The descriptions of the surroundings, especially the scenes on the moon are fantastic. You feel like you can really see and feel what the characters are experiencing. The story has the perfect ending also. I recommend this book to every reader! There is something for everyone in this story. I give this book a big 5 star rating!
