Book Review - Moon Hoax

About the Book 
In Moon Hoax, China claims the moon landings never happened and they have proof. Losing worldwide prestige is not an option for the United States. Paul Gillebaard's brilliant debut novel is a magnificent tale of seemingly doing the impossible, sending an American back to the

CIA agent and former NASA candidate Peter Novak, son of a U.S. moonwalker, is selected to fly a mission back to the moon against UN sanctions to set the record straight. With no manned rocket close to flying, America must figure out how to get their man into deep space undetected and without international help.

Restoring his father's good name and the reputation of his country on a one-way ticket to lunar orbit sounds crazy--but it's Peter's only chance to break free of Earth's atmosphere and fulfill his dream as an astronaut. Peter enlists a former space rival as his unlikely co-pilot, and the two battle to outwit China's efforts to sabotage the operation and beat the Chinese back to the moon. For more information, visit

About the Author
Paul lived in Nassau Bay, TX during the moon shot years, home for many of the Apollo astronauts. Living among these men who would make history inspired Paul to write this book. Paul currently resides in Orange County, CA with his wife and two children.

My Take on the Book
This book takes a theory that landing on the moon to a whole new level and adds a mystery into the plot as well. While I did not know what to expect, I was very pleased with the overall results. The author did a great job not only with the story, but also with establishing the characters and the relationships between them. The story was engaging and I found myself not wanting to put it down! I think for me some of the reason I found this to be such a good book was because I could tell that the author had researched and lived through what he was sharing in the book, which made the story that much better in my opinion! If you enjoy stories about the space race, you will love this!
