Time is running out for the passengers and crew of the tourist cruiser Selene, incarcerated in a sea of choking lunar dust. On the surface, her rescuers find their resources stretched to the limit by the pitiless and unpredictable conditions of a totally alien environment.
A brilliantly imagined story of human ingenuity and survival, A Fall of Moondust is a tour-de-force of psychological suspense and sustained dramatic tension.
"The best book yet about man’s most dramatic journey, the most exciting science fiction novel for years." ―Evening Standard
"Expertly told and cruelly exciting to the end." ―Sunday Times
"Extremely good...with some superbly ingenious and exciting new twists." ―Daily Express
