This is the second book in a three book series.
The years of promoting and lobbying have finally payed off. Jamie Waterman is back on Mars. This time as the mission leader. But the money for this mission has not come from government backing. The commercial sector is picking up the tab for this expedition, and Daryl Trumball, the biggest contributor, has sent his son Dex along to ensure a return for his investment.
Foremost in Jamie’s mind is investigating what he believed to be an artificial structure perched high on the cliffs of the Valles Marineris region. Reaching the area will take time and resources. But what if he saw nothing more than a trick of the Martian light?
Meanwhile the members of the mission crew must deal with the day to day challenges of living and working on Mars. But the number of incidents and accidents begin to suggest that there may be a saboteur amongst them.
