Cherchez la Moonrock!
Nixon’s resigned. “Kung Fu Fighting,” “Jungle Boogie” and ‘The Way We Were” rule the radio. “All in the Family,” “Sanford and Son” and “The Jeffersons” rule the TV airwaves. “The Godfather Part II,” “Blazing Saddles” and “Young Frankenstein” rule the box office.
And … a priceless Apollo Moonrock goes missing from the University of Missouri’s Museum of Natural History in Smithton, Mo.
Another one missing! More than half of the roughly 270 Moonrocks the Apollo program brought back are AWOL. Estimated value today? $8 million plus. For one.
Who took Missouri’s lunar sample? Why has it not surfaced since President Ford took a tumble down the steps of Air Force One?
Now it’s up to private investigator Peter Pike to follow a half-century-old lead and connect the dots from a wayward wife to a drunken heiress and a sinister lawyer. Will Pike find the rock? Or will the wife, heiress and lawyer make sure Pike falls face first into filthy Jimson Creek and stays there?
Read the sixth book in the Peter Pike series to find out.
