Cover blurb:
Louise Jameson reads this suspenseful novelisation of a Fourth Doctor adventure

“Attention to detail is the hallmark of this always classic range”
Doctor Who Magazine

On a distant desert planet, the giant Sandminer crawls through howling storms, harvesting the wealth of valuable minerals in the sand. Inside, the human crew members relax in luxury, while most of the work is done by the robots who serve them.

The Doctor and Leela arrive on board just as a series of mysterious deaths occurs. Commander Uvanov and his crew grow suspicious, first of the new arrivals, and then of each other. Yet there are those on board whom they naturally overlook. Everyone knows that robots can’t kill humans — don’t they?

First as suspects, then as hunted prey, Leela and the Doctor must find whoever is behind the killings — or join the other victims of the Robots of Death.

Louise Jameson, who played Leela in the BBC TV series, reads this novelisation of the 1977 TV aerial by Chris Boucher, written by Terrance Dicks and published by Target Books in 1979.
