Publisher's Summary

Beneath the ice of Jupiter's moon, life teems in lightless oceans. But more spectacular discoveries elsewhere in the cosmos have left Europa's research facilities underfunded and ignored, a lonely wayside with an orbital station and a decaying space elevator. When one of the elevators stops midway, the rescue team discovers a deadly cargo that threatens life on Europa and on Earth.


On Europa, Jupiter's largest moon, something has gone wrong with an orbital science station and its aging space elevator, and the crew has gone missing. Another team of scientists, along with their soldier chaperone, visit the station in the hopes they can find the missing crew and repair the issues with the station.

The reason the crew is missing is that an Alien has taken up residency, brought to the station by a freighter. The Alien attacks the new team and a quest to survive ensues.
