All the Moonlight on Earth by Jesse Muehlbauer is a suspense-filled thriller that explores the concept of a portal (called the Alignment) that allows humans to quickly move between Earth and its moon. Set in the 1950s, the era of Sputnik and the race to the moon, the main character, Gillen, finds himself still reeling over the loss of his wife, Cate, and faced with a missing daughter. One of the few on the team who built the two Hexagon buildings that attach to the Alignment, Gillen takes his daughter through the Alignment to the moon. As fate would have it, nefarious entities conspire to take advantage of the timing of his daughter’s awareness of the Alignment and the timing of the big reveal of the Alignment and the Hexagons to the public. Gillen’s daughter goes missing and what he discovers about his entire life on earth is called into question, altering his perception of himself and the people he trusts.
All the Moonlight on Earth by Jesse Muehlbauer is a powerfully written thriller with a delightfully unexpected plot. Fast-paced, yet emotionally aware, this story presents the possibility of parallel existences, space travel, and attempts to rewrite the lives of people. I really liked the surprises in the plot. The author does a splendid job of dropping hints and revealing important nuggets of information that help the reader understand the whole picture as the plot unfolds. The concept of the story is compelling, and the writing style is clear, concise, and elevated. Engaging characters and a captivating storyline make this book a pleasant read.
