Kenneth Guthrie apologizes for the change in tense from third person past (Rex was human) to third person present tense (Rex is human). This book was written about 6 months after the original series came out and he hasn't written in the prior tense for so long that it is a little difficult to make a understandable story in it.
Rex Pain of Mars?
THE WORLD BURNS RED LIKE THE FIRES OF HELL COME TO LIFE ON A WAR TORN DUMP CALLED MARS. The heat of the sun is so strong that, when it reflects off the hard worn surface of the planet, it is enough to set Rex's suit to a long steady beeping. That seems to mark the time better than the internal clock, which he has pulled up nice and large in the center of his suits display.
