A devastating dust storm. A colony on the edge of extinction.
Only one person and a droid can save them. But first, they need to start a revolution.
In the midst of the most devastating dust storm in the history of Mars, the survival of the half million people who call it home is hanging in the balance.
Yet for Major Mia Sorelli, of the Mars Law and Order Department, it’s just another sol at the office — another sol trying to keep the desperate and angry citizens from tearing themselves apart.
But when she’s sent to investigate the death of a fellow officer in the lawless industrial city of Syrtis, she begins to suspect that the endless dust storm may not be the only thing threatening their survival.
With the help of her semi-sentient droid, Gizmo, they uncover a plot so heinous that her faith in humanity is almost shattered — and the only way for her to get it back, and save the colony, is to start a goddamn revolution.
Surface Tension: The only law on Mars is your own.
