This is good entertainment for the low price. Give it a try. The story begins with Mac Brennan and a group of scientists preparing to join a colony on a far planet after the 20-year war ends.
They find only Bryce alive on the planet, with a computer as his protector. Or is the computer trying to kill him? The unexpected tale starts to unfold. Aliens who communicate using colors. Monstrous bird/animals attacking in the night and killing anyone they find, and the hero who is always taking showers. I was not able to figure out how the book title connects to the story, but maybe that's part of the mystery.
