'Afonso Cuaron's GRAVITY . . . Ridley Scott's THE MARTIAN . . . Few novels measure up to these gripping cinematic visions, but Simon Morden's GALLOWGLASS knocks them out of the park' The Times
The Times Best New Science Fiction!
JACK VAN DER VEERDEN IS ON THE RUN.
From his billionaire parents' chilling plans, from his brutal bodyguard, from a planet on the brink of climate chaos.
Seeking freedom out in space, he gets a job on a mining ship chasing down an asteroid. Crewed by mercenaries and misfits, they all want a cut of the biggest payday in history.
A single mistake could cost Jack his life - and that's before they reach their destination. The bounty from the asteroid could change lives and save nations - and corrupt any one of them.
Because in space, it's all or nothing: riches beyond measure, or dying alone in the dark.
Praise for ONE WAY:
'A blend of classic mystery, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK and Andy Weir's THE MARTIAN, ONE WAY is a science fiction thriller like no other' Waterstones
'A claustrophobic, high-tension, survival-against-the-odds thriller' Guardian
