Overview of the book

The year is 2250 and we are witness to a historical trial of one of the Silver Fleet’s youngest and most promising Captain, Richard Sparks who has been accused of murdering a fellow crew member during the Silver Star’s lengthy trip to Jupiter’s moon – Europa. But the crew are divided as to whether the Captain is to blame for the fiasco or there was a bigger conspiracy on board.

Can another murder on board the Silver Star be attributed to the unusual mission that the ship is on? Does someone want the crew of the Silver Star to fail in their mission to locate one of her sister ships, reportedly lost near Europa? And just how many of the crew can Captain Richard Sparks trust, if he is to be believed as being innocent?

Meanwhile, a shadowy organisation back on Earth contends with a dangerous, corrupt and ambitious Indian politician, with the Europa mission being used as the counter weight. Will this affect the crew on board the Silver Star?

All trials are not as simple as they seem – not when the accused has a story to tell and some people will go to great lengths to protect what actually happened on EUROPA.

  1. Science fictions are as vivid and exciting as a Food or adventure manga. Being a winner of an India wide contest and getting his book out in the market is a huge task. Congrats to the author. That being said, I am in. 😀
