Summary

Anna left at dawn. 
She entered the Martian desert, all alone. 
Where is she going? 
What secret is she hiding? 
Thirty years after the Mars exploration mission Hera, whose crew died in mysterious circumstances, the ensuing political issues that slowed NASA's race to conquer space have finally ended. This time the five members of the new Isis mission will not travel the 400 million kilometres for a short visit. This time they are destined to become the first colonisers of the Red Planet. 
The science fiction series "Red Desert", set in the near future, includes four books. 
The first one, "Point of No Return", is a novella. 
In what looks like a suicide attempt, Swedish exobiologist Anna Persson, crew member of the Isis, secretly leaves Station Alpha at the crack of dawn to travel deep into the Martian desert in a pressurised rover. 
As she journeys to the limit of her two day oxygen supply, she shows us memories of events from her past leading up to the mission. Little by little, as time and oxygen run out, she reveals the real Anna. 
Whatever her goal, wherever it is, will Anna reach her destination? 
The second book is "Red Desert - People of Mars" (a novel). 
--- This is the first book in a series of four and it ends with a cliffhanger. ---
