A well done murder mystery in a space setting
21 August 2002 | by (America) – See all my reviews

Brigette Nielsen and Julian Sands must work together to solve a murder, and discover that the human race's most infamous criminal is alive and well on their little moon base. Very engageing plot with disturbingly memorable gender issues.
