A thrilling standalone science fiction space adventure from Philip K. Dick award-winning author S.J. Morden

Strange radio signals are coming from Jupiter's largest moons.

A natural phenomenon, or something else?

Commander Mariucci and his hand-picked research team know they will have to muster all of their expertise, creativity and teamwork to survive the very harshest of conditions in orbit around the king of planets. But when they intercept a peculiar radio transmission, they have to investigate. Nothing should work in these impossible conditions, so what is sending the signal . . . and why?

With a degrading ship and crew at breaking point, there's every chance they will tear themselves apart before they ever find the answer to the ultimate question - are we alone in the universe?

And more importantly - what do we do if we aren't?

Praise for The Flight of the Aphrodite

  • One Way is what would happen if the crime and sci-fi genres got together and had a baby. Deeply immersive, chilling and atmospheric enough that you will believe yourself under a cold Martian sky. An utterly fabulous book! - Emma Kavanagh, bestselling author of FALLING and HIDDEN

  • An intense, gripping sci-fi thriller [ONE WAY] - Adrian Tchaikovsky, Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author

  • One Way is a taut and claustrophobic hard SF thriller. Morden does a fantastic job of ratcheting up the tension like oxygen escaping from a pressurised Martian habitat - Gavin Smith

  • A rip-roaring thriller of a book that hits the ground running and doesn't stop until the final chapter [ONE WAY] - John Marrs, author of the bestselling/Radio 2 Book Club choice THE ONE

  • A claustrophobic, high-tension, survival-against-the-odds thriller. It paints a convincing picture of the lethal Martian envrionment as well as the growing terror of being incarcerated in a deadly prison with no way out. [ONE WAY] - Guardian
