Summary

When a colonist dies in tragic circumstances, just a few sols before a major terraforming experiment, Dr. Jann Malbec begins to suspect that all is not what it seems. Her fears begin to grow when every attempt she makes to investigate the death is thwarted by the ruling council on Mars. 

In desperation, she resorts to secretly recruiting a recently arrived colonist, Mia Sorelli, an ex-cop with a troubled past, to quietly look into the incident. But Mia has some very good reasons why she left her old life on Earth behind. Nevertheless, she reluctantly accepts the assignment even if it means hooking up with the malcontented, semi-sentient droid Gizmo. 

But what Mia uncovers goes way beyond anything she or Dr. Malbec could ever have imagined. As she investigates, she begins to suspect that a terraforming experiment may be compromised by those who seek to undermine the future of the colony. 

Mia must now face down her old fears if she is to save not just herself, but the entire population of Jezero City. 

This audiobook can be listened to as a stand-alone novel.

The plains of utopia

Thoroughly enjoyable. Dancing with dust devils never felt so good. Thanks. Looking forward to more Martian sagas.

Unexpected buddycop!

I loved how this book continues the story. While I did not expect it to turn into a buddycop story, it works out good.
The plot itself is a bit of an overplayed cliche, but the background lore it fills up in the meanwhile makes up for it.

still, it feels short. it feels like there should be more.
