The Mitosis Hegemony – TechnoPolitics in the 21st Century
A mysterious radio signal is intercepted at an Arizona USAF radar base that sets off SAC and US Space Command alarms, resulting in a Pentagon-ordered mission to the moon for a look-see.
At the same time, a Mexican astronomical observatory makes First Contact with an alien entity via its radio telescope and issues a press release! What follows is a magic carpet ride to the moon and back which changes the human race forever. Since the book is a mystery, nothing further can be revealed.
