Artist and ge­ol­o­gist Anna Kubrin ac­cepts a com­mis­sion from a bil­lion­aire to paint land­scapes – on Mars. Af­ter tak­ing many months to ar­rive on the Red Planet she be­gins to miss her hus­band and baby, whom she left be­hind on earth. While strug­gling with her new life, Anna finds a let­ter in what ap­pears to be her hand­writ­ing – the note warns her not to trust the colony psy­chi­a­trist, but she has no me­mory of writ­ing it. A new, grip­ping in­stal­ment of New­man’s Plan­et­fall se­ries.
