Attack In The Airless Sea
After a lifetime of guilt and anger over the death of his father at the hands of a greedy space-development corporation, Ambassador Benton Hawkes has broken his vow never to travel off-planet. Reluctantly en route to Mars in the Earth League spaceship Man O' War, he has a new aide for the trip, a woman named Dina Martel, appointed by the duplicitous Senator Mick Carri. Is she someone he can trust? Or a new threat planted by his enemies? The answer may become academic as he now faces a new assassination attempt, looming from the depths of space.
