She came to Gliese to save her marriage. Now she's trying to save herself. This dangerous bit of rock is quite possibly the worst place in the universe to bring a troubled relationship. And trying to save it while hiking through the wilderness might be the worst decision Annie's ever made.
She's willing to risk it.
The light jumper drops Annie and her researcher-husband on the planet's surface. All that's left is the treacherous Wadamongo River, bad directions, and the trail leading to the safety of the big water station. It isn't long before her husband's arrogance translates to disaster, leaving Annie to make her way alone. At the station, she finds more danger than safety and more questions than answers. What destroyed all the electronic equipment? What are the noises she's hearing at night?
Who is the man whose cabin she's inherited?
And happened to the scientists who were supposed to greet her?
