Description:

The New York Times bestselling author and six-time Hugo Award winner’s epic Grand Tour adventure continues.

Jamie Waterman is returning to the red planet, this time leading an expedition in which he hopes to show that one can study Martian life not just for the sake of searching, but rather, that it can be profitable. Waterman also hopes to revisit a part of the canyon where he thought he saw a primitive cliff dwelling during the first Mars mission.

But this second trip to Mars immediately brings trouble when Waterman clashes with Dex Trumball, the son of a billionaire who is backing the expedition. Dex wants to turn the planet into a tourist attraction, while Waterman wants to preserve the planet solely for scientific research.

As their rivalry intensifies, both professionally and personally, Waterman faces betrayal and sabotage. But the planet still keeps its most closely guarded secrets. . . discoveries that could change what everyone thought they knew about Mars and life in space. . .

“Bova shines by making science not only understandable but also entertaining.” —New York Times Book Review
