Lunar Options

“A timely and captivating techno thriller… Locke delivers the goods!  Lunar Options is a fast page-turner that should make fans of the new school of techno thriller (Douglas E. Richards) and the oldschool sci-fi writers (Robert Heinlein) quite happy. “ – Bella Wright,

In 1961, President John Kennedy warned:
“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system, which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence,economic, scientific and political operations. 
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes areuried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”

This was true until 2025, when one event forever changed the world we knew and revealed every secret.

In 2025, a missile strikes the Capitol during the State of the Union address and kills the nation’s leaders. As the surviving heads of the military vie for power, they turn to Lazarus Coles (Joint Special Ops Command) and his wife, Dr. Karen Coles (Defense Intelligence Agency) to figure out what happened and why.

The Chinese admit the missile originated from a secret base they built on the Moon, but the Chinese swear they did not launch it. Are they telling the truth? Some military leaders doubt it and prepare to retaliate even though a likely suspect emerges–Laz’s former protégé, Develon. If Develon is behind the attack, only Laz can stop him.

Laz and his team must find and terminate the threat before war with China breaks out.But can they?

The chase from the Earth to the Moon and back leaves the whole world hanging in the balance and reveals shocking secrets of greed, the abuse of power and devastating revenge at the highest levels of government. This new techno-thriller from Author T.R. Locke will rivet you to your seat from start to finish.

“Lunar Options is Relentless…The technology and premise were enthralling! The characters well-defined through action. Tense international negotiations, pretensions and struggles for power… The twist at the end really got me and now I gotta see what’s going to happen next. I relished it and read it through in one day.” -M.K. Charles, Amazon
