Recently I had the pleasure to prepare book cover for James Crawford's MARINER VALLEY novel.

"The year is 2036. The space-faring nations of Earth have established settlements on the surface of Mars, some separated by hundreds of miles, where advances in science and industry are the order of the day. But technologically advanced societies still have dirty jobs to be done, and the growing ranks of bored and restless workers breeds a growing crime problem.
A high profile murder draws police officer Ben O’Ryan into the adventure of a lifetime. The killers have fled the American settlement at Chryse Planitia in a stolen military vehicle bound for the Russian base at Sinai Planum where they can get a flight back to Earth and safety.
Ben’s mission is to catch them before they get there and bring them to justice. With a hand picked team in five similar military vehicles, he sets off into a howling perihelic dust storm to pick up their trail."
