There’s trouble brewing on CMC-6. The golden age of space travel and asteroid mining is facing its demise when an expensive mining robot disappears while surveying a region of space known as KEL-30 or “Kelthy.” It mysteriously reappears carrying unfamiliar rock samples and imaging that doesn’t correspond with known star charts. Dr. Sally Buds and Ian Merryfield, an RAF shuttle pilot, are determined to find answers to the questions no one wants to be asked. What is in the Kelthy region and why do things disappear there? Is it a hoax intended to scare away claim jumpers or is it the greatest discovery of the twenty-first century? Ian and Sally intend to find out even if it means risking their careers and, possibly, their lives.
