The Venom of Argus(1976)
(The fourth book in the Expendables series)
A novel by Richard Avery (Edmund Cooper)
Argus looked good. The prospects for a settlement were excellent. So the crew of the star-ship Santa Maria was expecting a nice, relaxing holiday after facing the perils of Kratos, Tantalus, and Zelos. But their commander, James Conrad, knew better. A sixth sense--and bitter experience--warned him that Argus would have its own special brand of surprises. After their first encounter with the lethal vegetation they tried to be prepared--but nothing in the Expendables' extensive training could have readied them for the final deadly wonder Argus had in store.
