Everyone agrees Dr. Holtz went onto the lunar surface without his helmet properly affixed, simple as that. But Dr. Holtz was on the verge of an important new discovery, Dash finds out, and it’s a secret that could change everything for the Moonies—a secret someone just might kill to keep...

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The whodunit is smartly paced and intricately plotted. Best of all, the reveal is actually worth all the buildup. Thrillers too often fly off the rails in their final moments, but the author’s steady hand keeps everything here on track. Fully absorbing.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“A space-age Agatha Christie mystery grafted onto a Scooby Doo plot…Recommended as a breezy read, especially for the budding space scientist.” School Library Journal
“This zany sci-fi/adventure/murder mystery won’t sit around gathering moondust, especially with such an eye-catching cover!; highly recommended for your middle-grade mystery collection.” Jill M. Barton, MLIS, collection development Ingram Children’s Advance
