(From the publisher):
Here on Io - the moon of Jupiter, hell in space - men mine ore to satisfy the needs of Earth. They are hard men, loners for whom the Company provides the necessities: beds, food, drink, and women for hire. Now, in apparent suicide or in frenzied madness, the men are dying...
To OUTLAND comes the new U.S. Marshall O'Niel, a man with a sense of duty so strong it drives him to ferret out evil, greed and murder regardless of the cost. If he must, he will forfeit love, livelihood - even life itself.
Based on the screenplay by Peter Hyams; novelisation of the Peter Hyams movie.
