[PDF] The Mars Conspiracy By Brian Smith. Captain Pottinger has been based on Mars for several years. One day a group of scientists including his gorgeous girlfriend are overdue from a mission to Cydonia, a region famous for pyramid shaped mountains and the 'face'. He is sent to save them and takes the newly arrived base physician Larry Watson along. When they arrive at the scientists' location there is no sign of them. But when they explore the surrounding area they must prepare for a world no one ever trained them to survive in. Are the scientists still alive? And will Pottinger and Watson overcome and survive the horrendous challenges they face? Suspenseful, romantic and awash in adventure, The Mars Conspiracy brings to life a sinister alien world that has deep connections to humanity's ancient past.
