Review by: Nancy Beck on Dec. 13, 2012 :
Another superb book in the Retrieval Artist series.

This is the latest - at this time - of Ms. Rusch's Retrieval Artist series. It's 6 months after the Anniversary Day bombings (think 9/11), and everyone on the Moon is nervous, thinking that another attack is imminent.

But so far, nothing has happened.

Noelle DiRicci, the top security person on the Moon (and Flint's former partner in the Armstrong Police Force), also believes an attack on the Moon is imminent, but she has no facts to back that up - just a general intuitive feeling.

Meanwhile, Miles Flint, who has been helping Noelle in the investigation, is frustrated. He feels that there are too many disparate elements investigating the bombings so that nothing is getting done.

There is no central database or person to gather all the information that HAS come to light, and Miles decides to be that clearinghouse, as it were, and to use whatever means - and whoever he can find (whether on the right side of the law or not) to finally find out who targeted the Moon and why.

An absolute page turner that will have you on edge the entire time. Will the Moon escape further bombings or will some of the domes be destroyed? You'll have to read to find out!
