Private Eye Diana Hunter knows better than to get involved with an unlikely document called the Martian Diary, but curiosity conquers common sense and she is soon confronted with an unprovoked attack and unexplained death. These deadly realities force her to answer the question: Why would anyone take the Martian Diary seriously enough to kill for it? From the New Mexico desert to the rain forest of Costa Rica, with mean streets in between, it's Sam Spade meets global warming. Environmentalists, crackpots, and clandestine corporate agents create a toxic brew of high-octane action where unearthed truths and misplaced trust could get you killed. An expert in disguise, with a face people trust, Diana will need all her instincts and investigative skills to stay alive and unmask the killer.
