THE MARTAIN meets THE EXPANSE in this page turning debut science-fiction mystery

MARS, 2034
A place of hope, freedom, and the dream of a better future on their new home.

The year of the first human born on the red planet.

MARS, 2103
A place of division, suspicion and fear.

The year when the truth will come about.


This is the story of the first human being born on Mars: Rose Fuller, who saw a better future than the one that came to pass.

And Dylan Ward, a woman raised in the vast wilderness of the frontier, who will find her way back to it.

It’s a story about a man who went missing, and the man who wants to find out what he knew.

It’s a story about what makes us human – and how we might live once we leave our home.

The story of the first murder on Mars.
