Summary A Library Journal Best Books of 2018 pick! -- "PLANETSIDE is a smart and fast-paced blend of mystery and boots-in-the-dirt military SF that reads like a high-speed collision between Courage Under Fire and Heart of Darkness ." - Marko Kloos, bestselling author of the Frontline series -- "Not just for military SF fans -- although military SF fans will love it -- Planetside is an amazing debut novel, and I'm looking forward to what Mammay writes next." - Tanya Huff, author of the Confederation and Peacekeeper series A seasoned military officer uncovers a deadly conspiracy on a distant, war-torn planet ... War heroes aren't usually called out of semi-retirement and sent to the far reaches of the galaxy for a routine investigation. So when Colonel Carl Butler answers the call from an old and powerful friend, he knows it's something big -- and he's not being told the whole story. A high councilor's son has gone MIA out of Cappa Base, the space station orbiting a battle-ravaged planet. The young lieutenant had been wounded and evacuated -- but there's no record of him having ever arrived at hospital command. The colonel quickly finds Cappa Base to be a labyrinth of dead ends and sabotage: the hospital commander stonewalls him, the Special Ops leader won't come off the planet, witnesses go missing, radar data disappears, and that's before he encounters the alien enemy. Butler has no choice but to drop down onto a hostile planet -- because someone is using the war zone as a cover. The answers are there -- Butler just has to make it back alive ....
