Also known as: "The Captain's Daughter".
DESCRIPTION:
On a lonely Lunar outpost, Dr. Mark Gaulers was called in to examine a seriously ill young woman, the captain's daughter of a recently landed spaceship. It seemed routine enough, but when he found himself accompanied by a hard-boiled detective who was investigating the apparent outer space suicide of one of the ship's crewmembers, he knew something unusual was afoot. His own investigations –medical and otherwise– led him to a distant planet, ruled in large part by a strange religious cult. What he found there was a trail of clues that pointed to a possible double homicide, a threat to his own life, and a new disease that threatened the health of the entire galaxy!
