In this fourth and final installment of the Detective Ace Sloan series, Sloan must solve the murders of multiple members of a prominent Martian family and a distinguished poet all while cultivating a relationship with a new lover and dealing with a sudden serious health issue.
More than ever, he must lean on Detective Kate Hammer to assist him in solving the crimes. Like the other Sloan mysteries (The Red Planet Murders, The Red Planet President, and Mars at Midnight), this book brims with intrigue and suspense set against the Martian landscape in the 22nd century.

Detective Ace Sloan is back at it again in the final installation of the series.
Detective Ace Sloan is a detective on Mars. He is a Martian detective, and he is darn good at it. When there are numerous murders starting to grip the Martian colony -- he is on the case again. He must find out who the killer is, and why they are taking out such a high profile Martian family.
The narration for Mars At Twilight was done by Adam Schulmerich. This was the first book that I ever listened to by Schulmerich and I really don't think I had enough chance to actually make a decision on whether or not I really enjoyed his narration style or not. There were a few times that I really felt like there needed to be more emotion, but not all narrators or authors want their books to be done that way. Overall, his voice was clear and concise. The book was narrated nicely, and I was able to listen to it without any issues.
The final Ace Sloan book left me feeling like I wanted more. Not necessarily more Sloan, but just more to the story. There was a lot going on, maybe, even more, going on than any of the other Sloan books. But, it just felt like something was missing.
I've really enjoyed all four books in the series, and this was no different. Yes, I felt like it was missing something, but overall this was good for the short story that it is. Graham knows how to write very tight and precise short stories that are full of detail and actually have a story arc.
Overall, a good story, not great. But definitely, a good choice for a quick read/listen. All four Detective Ace Sloan books are.
