About the Series: Mars 2194
In 2194 the winds of change are sweeping across Mars. It's been a decade since the eco-revolution started and stalled after liberating only 20% of the planet. Since then the eco-revolution has spread to Earth, and a cyber-revolution has begun in the asteroid belt. Now the revolution is spreading back to Mars, and impacting the lives of ordinary people.

Review by: Phil Lembo on March 31, 2018 :
This was another all-too-short visit to Stornoway's future human settlements on Mars. The main character was well crafted and his interaction with the other characters gave the story substance. I thought the detective story plot provided an interesting vehicle for exploring another corner of Stornoway's Mars. I didn't have a problem with the detective's use of his "augmentation" to help solve the case, or that it was in the end crucial to the story's resolution. I suspect it was introduced more to reveal yet another aspect of future Martian society, than as a plot device. It will be interesting where Stornoway takes it in future stories.

Review by: Audrey Driscoll on Aug. 10, 2017 :
This story is categorized as science fiction, but the main character is a detective investigating a murder in a mining colony deep below the surface of Mars. Sadly, the tale does not live up to its intriguing setting. Solving the mystery depends less on detecting than on (surprise!) cyber abilities possessed by the detective.
