WE STAND AT THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA

Frank Kittridge is serving life for murdering his son's drug dealer. So when he's offered a deal by Xenosystems Operations - the company that runs the prison - he takes it, even though it means swapping one life sentence for another.

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO BE ALIVE

He's been selected to help build the first permanent base on Mars. Unfortunately, his crewmates are just as guilty of their crimes as he is - and he'll have to learn to trust them if they're to succeed.

THE FUTURE OF SPACE TRAVEL IS IN SAFE HANDS

As the convicts set to work on the frozen wastes of Mars, the accidents multiply. Until Frank begins to suspect they might not be accidents at all . . .

XENOSYSTEMS OPERATIONS: MAKING DREAMS A REALITY

There's a murderer amongst them, and everyone's a suspect.

Review quote

A rip-roaring thriller of a book that hits the ground running and doesn't stop until the final chapter * John Marrs, author of the bestselling/Radio 2 Book Club choice THE ONE * One Way is a taut and claustrophobic hard SF thriller. Morden does a fantastic job of ratcheting up the tension like oxygen escaping from a pressurised Martian habitat * Gavin Smith * An intense, gripping sci-fi thriller * Adrian Tchaikovsky, Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author * One Way is what would happen if the crime and sci-fi genres got together and had a baby. Deeply immersive, chilling and atmospheric enough that you will believe yourself under a cold Martian sky. An utterly fabulous book! * Emma Kavanagh, bestselling author of FALLING and HIDDEN * An exciting Mars-based thriller. * A NOVEL HAUL *
