‘The science fiction author who will have the greatest effect on the world.’ Ray Bradbury
MARS WAS THE STORY OF THE THRILLING FIRST MANNED JOURNEY TO THE MYSTERIOUS PLANET…
Now a carefully picked international crew of astronauts, engineers and scientists is on its way back. Leading them is Jamie Waterman, the man who defied the accepted wisdom of the scientific community – and the direct orders of his superiors – to discover life on the planet.
But there are those who still resent his success; others who have their own reasons to ensure that Waterman, with his almost mystic idealism, does not make the final decisions about the Second Mars Expedition. And among the crew is someone whose mental instability could lead to catastrophe for them all.
