Description
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 She unpacks her wedding ring, only to find it has been replaced by a fake.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.

        May 21, 2018
        Strange events prompt a geologist on a Mars base to question her mission in Newman’s suspenseful companion novel to Planetfall and After Atlas. In a future defined by corporate greed and hubris, Dr. Anna Kubrin is sent to Mars by the head of the powerful GaborCorp to both work as a geologist and paint unique Mars vistas that will sell for enormous profit. Anna finds a note in her room, painted in her own hand, that warns her not to trust the base’s psychologist, Dr. Arnolfi; she later discovers a footprint in the Mars dust that doesn’t belong. She is puzzled by the crew’s strange behavior and her undeniable, familiar attraction to her colleague Dr. Asil Elvan. As Anna’s paranoia builds, so does pain that stems from her ambivalence about being a mother and her family’s dark past. Devastating news from Earth turns up the heat considerably. Newman has constructed a captivating puzzle of a tale that, while harrowing, concludes on a poignantly hopeful note, leaving the door open for further adventures in an all-too-believable future. Agent: Jennifer Udden, Barry Goldblatt Literary.
