The Apollo Murders by Chris Hadfield

An exceptional Cold War thriller from the dark heart of the Space Race, by astronaut and New York Times bestselling author Chris Hadfield


1973: a final, top-secret mission to the Moon.  Three astronauts in a tiny module, a quarter of a million miles from home.  A quarter of a million miles from help.

As Russian and American crews sprint for a secret bounty hidden away on the lunar surface, old rivalries blossom and the political stakes are stretched to breaking point back on Earth.  Houston flight controller Kazimieras ‘Kaz’ Zemeckis must do all he can to keep the NASA crew together, while staying one step ahead of his Soviet rivals.  But not everyone on board Apollo 18 is quite who they appear to be.

Full of fascinating technical detail, twists and tension, The Apollo Murders puts you right there in the moment.  Experience the dark majesty of space, the fierce G-forces of launch and the rush of holding on to the outside of a spacecraft travelling at 17,000 mph, as told by a former Commander of the International Space Station who has done all of those things in real life.

Strap in and count down for the ride of a lifetime.

Peer & Press Reviews

A nail-biting cold war thriller…  It’s a very rare book that combines so many things I love, from taut suspense and highly realistic action, to the golden age of space exploration.  I couldn’t put it down.

James Cameron, writer and director of Avatar

A relentlessly exciting, deeply intriguing insider’s look at the prime years of the Apollo space program, ingeniously weaving together three of the coldest, darkest things in existence – Cold War politics, space, and murder.

Stephen Mack Jones, author of the August Snow series

Chris Hadfield has deftly combined fact and fiction in a gripping tale of high-stakes treachery [that] builds to an explosive and satisfying finale.

John Verdon, author of the Dave Gurney series
