Ten years ago the world's governments collapsed. Now the corporations are in control.
Houston's Pulsystems has sent an expedition to the lost Martian colony of Frontera to search for survivors. Reese, aging hero of the US space program, knows better. The colonists are not only alive, they have discovered a secret so devastating that the new rulers of Earth will stop at nothing to own it.
Reese is equally desperate to use it for his own very personal agenda. But none of them have reckoned with Kane, tortured veteran of the corporate wars, whose hallucinatory voices are urging him to complete an ancient cycle of heroism and alter the destiny of the human race.

'Frontera is hard-edged and colourful and relentless, and altogether a compelling read. Shiner paints his picture of the day after tomorrow with a gritty realism that makes you believe every minute of it'
George RR Martin
'Extraordinarily accomplished ... His pacing is brisk, his scientific extrapolation well-informed, and his characterization nothing short of outstanding'
