Back Cover:

The fact that Flane’s best friend and executive officer, Commander Vic Chapman, got all aflap about detecting life on board that ship, didn’t make things any easier.”

Synopsis:

“Captain Flane, Vic and Dr Killian visit an alien space ship abandoned on the surface of a world destroyed thousands of years before in a cataclysmic war that left the surface barren and dead.

Is the story told by the young woman who has lived in isolation most of her life, caring for the plants and animals, true? As Flane and his colleagues investigate, they find that things are not quite as they seem to be…”
