From October 21 – 28, “Red Gold” will be discounted to 99c/99p.
Mars is to be colonized. The hype is huge, the suckers will line up, and we will control the floats. There is money to be made, and the beauty is, nobody on Earth can check what is really going on on Mars. Meanwhile, on Mars we shall be the only ones with guns. This can’t lose.
Except that there is one person who will try to stop the fraud. Which means he cannot be allowed to live. Partly inspired by the 1988 crash, Red Gold shows the anatomy of one sort of fraud. Then there is the problem that fraudsters with guns cannot permit anyone to expose them. One side must kill the other.
If you liked The Martian where science allowed one person to survive then Red Gold is a thriller that has a touch of romance, a little economics and enough science to show how Mars might be colonised and the colonists survive indefinitely.http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009U0458Y
