The Crystal Crypt is a science fiction short story by Philip K. Dick that was first published in the January 1954 edition of Planet Stories magazine.
The story is set in the distant future, with Earth and Mars on the verge of war.
The last spaceship to leave Mars for Earth is suddenly stopped by Martian soldiers in search of three saboteurs who have destroyed a Martian city.
The criminals are not found, and the ship continues toward Earth.
Onboard the spaceship, a businessman named Thacher meets a young woman and two men who tell him that they are, in fact, the people the Martians are looking for. They proceed to explain to Thacher what they have done, and how their deeds were to be used as a bargaining chip against Mars in the upcoming war.
