There were three of them - Adzel who measured four and a half metres and resembled a dragon, Chee Lan who was furry, catlike and female, and David Falkayn, a dare-devil rakehell from space When they learned of a rogue planet two hundred and four light-years from Sol, they were interested interested because the planet, a nightmare of ice and darkness, was rich in minerals. And the planet was about to melt - to move closer to a sun and release the vast wealth entombed in its depths. And Falkayn, Chee Lan and Adzel were prepared to risk the horrors of an erupting, melting world if they could only salvage the riches that would shortly boil from the planet's core

User Review  - David - Goodreads

Decent adventure story. Not as much puzzle solving as I expected from van Rijn. Interesting idea on an alien species spying on humans. But my recollection of it is already getting fuzzy after just a few weeks, so it doesn't seem as if it's that memorable. Read full review
