Synopsis

A tense, claustrophobic and gripping science fiction thriller from the author of The Testimony.





When journalist Cormac Easton is selected to document the first manned mission into deep space, he dreams of securing his place in history as one of humanity's great explorers.





But in space, nothing goes according to plan.





The crew wake from hypersleep to discover their captain dead in his allegedly fail-proof safety pod. They mourn, and Cormac sends a beautifully written eulogy back to Earth. The word from ground control is unequivocal: no matter what happens, the mission must continue.





But as the body count begins to rise, Cormac finds himself alone and spiralling towards his own inevitable death ... unless he can do something to stop it.
