      I feel this book is a bit misleading based on it's premise. I got the impression that the book would have more of a sci-fi feel to it based on the lunar landscape and the cliffhanger that seems to insinuate an otherworldly presence. Despite that fact, I did find this to be a solid suspense thriller/5.

Upset one link and the entire coastal unity goes out of sync, a harbinger of environmental disaster.
