Publisher's Summary

After months of travel, Anna Kubrin finally arrives on Mars for her new job as a geologist and de facto artist-in-residence. Already she feels like she is losing the connection with her husband and baby at home on Earth - and she'll be on Mars for over a year.

Throwing herself into her work, she tries her best to fit in with the team. But in her new room on the base, Anna finds a mysterious note written in her own handwriting, warning her not to trust the colony psychologist. A note she can't remember writing. She unpacks her wedding ring, only to find it has been replaced by a fake.

Finding a footprint in a place the colony AI claims has never been visited by humans, Anna begins to suspect that her assignment isn't as simple as she was led to believe. Is she caught up in an elaborate corporate conspiracy, or is she actually losing her mind?

Regardless of what horrors she might discover, or what they might do to her sanity, Anna has to find the truth before her own mind destroys her.

Locked room mystery in space!

This was a phenomenal listen. Read by the author I believe she had unique ability to bring the characters to life in her direct vision. This is, like the title says, a locked room mystery so at times it can feel frustrating. Payoff at the end is great and it's a wonderful look at a purely capitalistic post-government world. Loved it!

difficult to relate to

very hard for me to relate to, deus ex machina killed some of the story.
