Beneath the Martian Sands

Blurb: Who are the mysterious hooded figures haunting the ancient Martian ruins? Why has the corpse of a German spy surfaced in the research settlement’s reservoir? And can Master Sergeant Bradwell and his beautiful daughter Agent Bradwell solve the Secret of the Hidden City — before it is too late?

Master Sergeant Bradwell is visiting the small research colony being governed by his son, Daniel. However, mysterious forces are at work — several different groups are vying for control of the treasures hidden in the ancient Martian ruins.

(The agent contacts Tobias, says he’s sending help — it’s Betty! Thrills and conspiracy among the ruins, conflicts between the colonists and natives, a confrontation that is turned on its head by the intervention of a third party; all culminating in a battle in a great cavern under the ruins, with an ancient Martian war-machine being activated from its centuries-long slumber. The heroes collapse the cave, crushing the machine and thwarting the bad guys; the government takes the bits that are left. Need to detail the bad guys a bit more, so we can use them as antagonists — cultist and… Germans? Some national actors, anyway. Plus Martian tribes.)
