Publisher's Summary

All contact is lost with the first human colony on Mars during a long and destructive sandstorm. Satellite imagery of the aftermath shows extensive damage to the facility. The 54 colonists who called it home are presumed dead.

Three years later, a new mission sets down on the planet's surface to investigate what remains of the derelict site. But it's not long before they realize the colony is not as lifeless as everyone thought. Someone is still alive - hiding out somewhere.

Yet, before they can find the elusive colonist, a strange illness starts to affect the crew. Pressure now mounts on biologist Dr. Jann Malbec to locate the source and find a way to fight it. However, as she investigates she begins to suspect a dark and deadly secret lurking within the colony. A secret that threatens not just the crew but the entire population of Earth.

With limited resources and time running out, she must find some answers and find them fast. Because if she doesn't, none of them will be going home.

Oh, dear.

I'm really glad that I had previously read this book in print form. It's good, exciting, sci-fi and the series is enjoyable however the narrator is not impressive. If I hadn't already read the book I would have given up because her voice is incredibly irritating. This, obviously, is subjective and I would recommend listening to the sample before buying.

Good title, wish it had been a bit longer

Felt like little time was given to get to know the characters and their motivations. There is apparently a sequel so I hope some of the unanswered questions will be answered. Overall a good read though and will give the second book a whirl as the set up is interesting.
