“You know what I just realized, Simon? None of us is getting out of here alive.”
Ten people working on an isolated wartime outpost, an impending alien invasion…and murder.
The tiny outpost sits on the edge of hostile space, a lonely bastion of humanity precariously hidden on a tranquil alien moon. Its purpose: intercept and the coded transmissions of Earth’s most implacable and terrifying enemy.
Nine people and one android have manned the outpost for many long months in utter isolation. Relationships have been strained. Old hatreds have been nurtured, and it seems everyone has a secret. Light years from any semblance of civilization, it is the perfect setting for murder.
But then an intercepted transmission confirms their worst fears. The enemy is coming for them, and soon. With no hope of being rescued, the only way off the planet is an emergency spacepod, a craft nowhere near large enough for them all.
Who stays and faces almost certain death, and who escapes? It is a difficult decision for the outpost’s leader, Simon Atwell. But someone is taking that matter into their own hands, and no member of the group is safe. One by one, they are marked for murder.
The killer, it seems, intends to be on the spacepod when it leaves…one way or another. But is there more going on here than meets the eye?
“One Little Spacepod” is a gripping “whodunit” in the tradition of Agatha Christie, with a sci-fi twist!
