Moon Rescue

Lt. Jenna McNamara is a tough cop in a tough place–Daedalus Dome, the Moon habitat that’s home to more than 5,000 people in the year 2067. There’s rampant drug addiction, a killer on the loose, a virulent plague and a fugitive with a checkered past whom she is ordered to recruit. She has to trust Rick, an admitted killer with an altruistic streak who may just end up saving the Earth and the Dome. Book 2 in the 2-book Earth-Moon Rescue series.

Moon Rescue: Escape from the Dome, speculates about a future Moon habitat designed as a final refuge for those escaping the slow destruction of the Earth due to unchecked climate change. Plans to make Moon habitation a stepping stone to a Mars mission–as speculated by NASA’s Artemis program–are scuttled in the face of catastrophic fires, land erosion and rising temperatures on Earth. In the year 2067, the average temperature has risen three degrees. New York’s Battery Park is underwater. The beaches of the Jersey Shore are reduced to thin strips of sand. Huge portions of California have been reduced to burned hellscapes due to relentless fires and mudslides. Refugee camps dot the former state as survivors struggle to figure out what to do now that their homes, cars, all worldly possessions have been lost. Storm shelters are mandated in major population areas to protect citizens from tornadoes, hurricanes and other severe weather caused by global warming.

Unknown to their lunar neighbors, Dome residents Sam and Leah Ragland are fugitives from the insurrection of 2055 during which Sam, then known as Enrico Janice Walton Stein, Rick for short, aided and abetted an armed invasion of the Planetary Commission’s headquarters in Old Philadelphia that ended in bloodshed. Rick is a native of 23rd century Earth, a devastated environment of toxic bogs, dark rain and little direct sunlight, who traveled through a wormhole in an effort to halt the climate apathy of the 21st century.
