Dr Emma Watson is training for a mission of a lifetime. She will be travelling to the International Space Station (ISS) to study living organisms in space. For a research scientist with an interest in space, this is a mission of a lifetime.
A series of events - some deliberate, and some accidental – result in an overwhelming and rapidly fatal infection spreading amongst the crew members of the ISS. The remaining crew appears doomed to die in space as the infection threatens life on earth. There seems to be no cure available, and the prospects of developing and applying any cure in the timeframe seems impossible.
This rapidly developing thriller contains a number of plausible events with some very human reactions and interactions.
‘There’s no crime to punish here. There are people who simply made mistakes.’
It is possible to read this novel on a couple of different levels. There are some ethical issues to consider and some relationship aspects to untangle. For myself, I chose to become caught up in the pace of journey: nothing else mattered.
