|This was another one of my gee whiz purchases because it sounded interesting. It’s the not too distant future and the United States, Russia, and England are the last holdouts from a UN dominated world government. Tensions are high when the explorations of some 500,000 year old ruins on Mars turn up a discovery which threatens to force mankind to reevaluate everything we know about ourselves. Some people are intent on making sure that discovery never sees the light of day and all that stands between them are 30 Marines who are over 100 million miles from home.
It’s a well written book with great attention to detail and good character and plot development. It’s a great way to spend a few evenings.
