Six years have passed since half-Navajo, half-Anglo Jamie Waterman
took charge of a foundering expedition to the Red Planet, and led
its surviving members on a dangerous trek to Mars' Valles Marineris
- and to, perhaps, the greatest scientific discovery in the history
of humankind: fragile, lichenlike organisms growing just beneath
the planet's rocky surface; extraterrestrial life in its most basic
form. But things have soured for Waterman back in Earth's rich
atmosphere and the two halves of Jamie's heart - native mystic and
rational scientist - have slipped further and further out of
Now a second Martian expedition has been announced - one motivated
purely by its profit potential - and Jamie Waterman's wounded soul
is beckoning him back to the eerie, unforgiving landscape whose
sere natural beauty reminds him so strongly of Navajo lands. As
commander of the new team, he will have to contend with a bitter
and destructive rivalry, a disturbing new emotional attraction, and
the deadly, incomprehensible "accidents" that appear to be sabotage
- all of which could doom the mission to failure.
But Waterman knows he must not fail - for much more is at stake
than his personal redemption and the safety of his crew. For there
are still great secrets to be uncovered on this cruel and enigmatic
world - not the least being something he glimpsed in the far
distance during his first Mars excursion; an improbable structure
perched high in the planet's carmine cliffs; a dwelling that only
an intelligent being could have built!
