Twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is one of the first humans to live on the moon. His parents are scientists working at Moon Base Alpha. You would think living on the moon would be great with tons to do, but you would be mistaken. Dash is bored out of his mind. Kids are not allowed to travel outside of the moon base and there is little for them to do inside.
When Dr. Hotlz turns up dead, nobody believes Dash when he tells them that Dr. Holtz was murdered. Dash enlists the help of Kira, a new girl to the base, in order to find clues that prove that Dr. Hotlz’s death was no accident. Can Dash and Kira solve the mystery before the rocket goes back to earth, possibly taking the killer with it?
