About Chris Hadfield

“Born in Canada, Hadfield was inspired by space travel when he watched the 1969 Apollo 11 Moon Landing on television. Since his first journey into space in 1995, he has spent a total of 166 days in space.”

His social media diary of life in orbit included a zero-gravity cover of David Bowie’s Space Oddity.

Now, he has written a novel – a cold war thriller from the dark heart of the Space Race. The Apollo Murders is a thrilling journey to an alternative past. Russia and the United States are neck and neck in the race to discover a secret bounty hidden on the lunar surface, and as they sprint to the moon, political stakes on Earth stretch to breaking point…
