Plot summary[edit]

In a crater on Mars an engineer from Mars Base has been found dead, his spacesuit slashed. Despite having a large number of suspects to interview, Morrey Kant, Serge Smyslov and Tony Hale's questioning flushes out a prime suspect. But Tony does not believe they have the right man and hatches a dangerous plan to find the real killer.
