Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company
"Hickam has a wild imagination and a keen eye for the science behind the fiction." --JAVIER GRILLO-MARXUACH, writer & producer on Lost and Helix, creator of The Middleman
Crater Trueblood has to rescue his ex-girlfriend . . . and the entire human race.
Maria Medaris is the 21-year-old matriarch of the most powerful family on the moon--gorgeous, powerful, and high-maintenance. When she is kidnapped by green-lipped, gene-splicing scientists, Maria's only hope turns out to be the very man she once spurned: Crater Trueblood.
Crater and the Lunar Rescue Company must rescue Maria before she joins forces with the lunatics who have taken her hostage and aim to make her queen.
Turns out more than Maria is at stake: the planet Earth, majestically rising over the lunar horizon, is in the crosshairs of an asteroid engineered by Maria's abductors. If Crater can't stop it, humanity on Earth will be destroyed.
The fate of two worlds hangs in the balance . . . and the clock is ticking.
"Hickam again displays a knack for suspenseful scenes out in the 'big suck' of space . . ." --KIRKUS Reviews
"An exciting romp through a surprisingly realistic future." --JASPER T. SCOTT, author of the Dark Space series

"With vivid prose, wild imagination, and a keen eye for the science behind the fiction, Homer Hickam transports us to a future Moon that is equal parts wild west boomtown, hot-rod dragstrip, and royal court in a space opera. Packed with big-hearted heroes, damsels more than clever enough to get themselves out of distress, villains with double and triple agendas, and---of course---hyper-intelligent slime molds, Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company is a thrill ride of space battles, runaway asteroids, and all the derring-do any reader could ever hope for."--Javier Grillo-Marxuach, writer and producer on Lost and Helix and creator of The Middleman
