WMG Publishing, Apr 13 2015, $18.99
Moon’s chief security officer Noelle DeRicci analyzes information collected by her, Retrieval Artist Miles Flint, Police Detective Bartholomew Nyquist and Armstrong’s shady business mogul Luc Deshin, and from interrogating an incarcerated Peyti clone. Her conclusions frighten her; especially DeRicci’s belief that another wave of terrorist attacks is imminent from those followers to include clones of the executed decades ago mass murderer PierLuigi Fremont.
Desperate to save the millions of survivors living on the moon, DeRicci knows she needs to learn who the mastermind(s) behind the deadly suicide bombings on two Anniversary Days four years apart are. However, to her chagrin everything DeRicci has learned points to the Earth Alliance leadership. An assassination affirms her fear that time and political correctness are not on her side.
The superb sixth Anniversary Day Saga science fiction continues the monthly releases (see The Peyti Crisis, Search & Recovery, Anniversary Day, Blowback and A Murder of Clones) with a captivating entry as the heroes struggle to prevent more devastating terrorist bombings. Although the overarching theme does not move forward very much; this exciting plot fills information gaps about the past but interwoven into the frantic effort of the present to avoid a future calamity.
