One Way ★★★★★ SJ Mor­den, Gol­lancz, R295

- Sa­man­tha Gibb @saman­tha_gibb

Frank Kit­tridge is serv­ing a life sen­tence for mur­der, yet that doesn’t stop him be­ing ap­proached to go to Mars. He will be part of a team of skilled in­mates who will build and main­tain Mars Base One while serv­ing out their sen­tences. Frank is all in – he could do with a change of scenery. How­ever, when the chain gang ar­rives on the Red Planet and the crew mem­bers start to die, Frank needs to play de­tec­tive or risk end­ing up in a body bag. Mor­den de­liv­ers ac­tion from the first sen­tence, a re­fresh­ing plot, and a shocker of a twist. Thrilling, hard to put down, and deeply sat­is­fy­ing – this book is the per­fect trip for an of­f­world es­cape that will leave you reel­ing.
