9780061051128: Moonfall

The ultimate disaster novel. IT’S TIME TO PANIC…

A comet is coming. It’s going to hit the moon. And the moon is going to fall.

On us.

Out of the blindside of a total solar eclipse comes a fundamental threat to life on our planet. Moonbase, the NASA project establishing at last permanent human activity on the moon, has been up and running for precisely five days. If it’s knocked out, it’ll be a hell of a blow to the US President, Henry Kolladner, who came to office riding high on the space ticket.

And it’ll be a bit of a blow to his deputy, VP Charlie Haskell, who’s actually up there. If the comet fully impacts, there’ll be no more moon at all. Billions of tons of lunar rock will crash to Earth. There’ll be tidal waves, quakes, global destruction.

It’s a tough call for the President. Does he declare a state of emergency and start evacuating the entire coastal population of America? Imagine the chaos, the looting, the riots…

Does he panic?

Wouldn’t YOU?

Product Description:

In five days, comet "Tomiko" will shatter the Moon. Huge chunks will rain down on Earth, causing continent-wide fires, killer storms, and tidal waved as tall as mountain ranges.

Five days to save a world.

Five nightmare days for the reluctant Russian rocket jockey entrusted with Earth's future; for the woman astronaut who may be the last human on the Moon; for the scientist who must deflect the "possums" (POSSible IMpactors) or witness the end of science itself. And for Vice President Charlie Haskell, the career politician who discovers unexpected reserves of courage and principle as he makes choices not only for himself and his country, but for all humankind.

"Moonfall" is McDevitt's masterpiece--a heart-stopping drama of heroism and hope played out against the awesome spectacle of the darkest night in human history.

Product Description:

It's the 21st century, and all is right with the world. Or so it seems.Vice President Charlie....
