The Man in the Tree - Sage Walker

A thrilling science fiction mystery from the Locus Award-winning author of Whiteout. Humanity’s last hope lies in space... but will a random death doom the venture?

With The Man in the Tree, Sage Walker has come up with a fantastic hard science fiction story about mankind’s last, best hope of survival. Our planet is toast and the nations of the world have pooled their resources to build a seed ship that will carry colonists on a multigenerational journey to a far-flung planet.

All are set for a bright adventure... then someone is found hanging dead just weeks before the launch and it looks increasingly like a case of murder. The authorities want the case settled quickly and quietly so as to not cause panic... and to prevent a murderer from threatening the entire mission.
