Spend an evening with #1 bestselling Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, discussing his Cold War thriller The Apollo Murders.

James Cameron writes, “The Apollo Murders is a nail-biting Cold War thriller set against a desperate Apollo mission that never really happened … or did it? It’s a very rare book that combines so many things I love, from taut suspense and highly realistic action, to the golden age of space exploration. I couldn't put it down.”
