Summary

Station Alpha: 1000 days, 5 persons. 
Mysterious discoveries. 
Friendship, jealousy, hatred, betrayal. 
Death. 
Where's Anna? 
What's hiding in Valles Marineris? 
Second book in the science fiction series "Red Desert". 
After 995 days on Mars, the enthusiasm of the Isis crew has turned into frustration and intolerance. Their research hasn't provided the hoped for outcomes, the resources at their disposal are insufficient, and NASA had previously cancelled the launch of a second mission, which would have brought more colonisers and equipment to the planet. 
Relationships among the five members of the expedition have become difficult. Station Alpha is home to a complex web of conflicts, secrets, alliances, and rivalries. 
Now a new launch window is about to open, but the news from Houston isn't reassuring at all. While the finding of a possible ice sac might give a positive turn to the events, Anna, embittered by the unusual behaviour of Robert and the cold war against Hassan, is considering the opportunity to return to Earth. 
When death strikes amongst the five inhabitants of Mars, Anna finds her only possible choice is a solitary escape. 
But Mars has got an incredible discovery in store for her, a key to a mystery hidden in the depths of Valles Marineris. 
The previous book is "Red Desert - Point of No Return". 
The next book is "Red Desert - Invisible Enemy" (a novel). 
 
--- This is the second book in a series of four and it ends with a cliffhanger. ---
