An engineer on Mars Base has been found dead in a crater with cuts in his spacesuit.
Morrey, Serge and Tony -'astrotecs' as they are now known - have a large number
of suspects to interview, but cunning questioning soon uncovers an obvious suspect.
However Tony is not so sure they have the right man, and plans some - very dangerous
- solo detective work.
Lacking the novelty of 'Tony Hale, Space Detective' this is nonetheless an entertaining
read. The finale, where the murderer commits suicide, is quite memorable.
