Summary (From the publisher):

Out of the blindside of a total solar eclipse comes a fundamental threat to life on our planet. Moonbase, the NASA project establishing at last a permanent human activity on the moon, has been up and running for precisely five days. If it's knocked out, it'll be a hell of a blow to the US President, Henry Kolladner, who came to office riding high on the space ticket.

And it'll be a bit of a blow to his deputy, Vice President Charlie Haskell, who's actually up there, preparing for the inauguration speech. If the comet fully impacts, there'll be no more moon at all. Billions of tons of lunar rock will crash to Earth. There'll be tidal waves, quakes, global destruction.

It's a tough call for the President. Does he declare a state of emergency and start evacuating the entire coastal population of America? Imagine the chaos, the looting, the riots...
