In 1981, the Supreme Leader of North Korea lands rockets on the Moon, claiming the Moon for North Korea, to the exclusion of every other nation on Earth. To force the United Nations and the Member Countries to agree to his Claim, Kim iI Jong threatens to infect the world with a deadly disease.

Shin Min Shu, is a North Korean Bio medical Scientist who has been forced to develop a more deadly strain of the virus central to the Claim. But Shin Min Shu is unhappy to be party to the killing of women and children that will inevitably occur if the United Nations rejects the North Korean Claim.

Charles Edmonds is an ex Royal Marine Commando turned Astronomer who is now the Special Assistant to the Director of NASA. Charles becomes involved in the investigation of a teenage boy’s observation of a flash on the Moon that has been reported to the FBI. The investigation reveals a ruthless organization that will stop at nothing to ensure that the Claim is agreed.

The CIA believes that the United States is being threatened, but needs proof. Kafira, as the World’s leading expert on the disease has been requested to be part of the Lunar Module crew, to investigate the suspected presence on the Moon.
