Captain John Wells and his NASA colleagues undertake an aggressive mission to the Red Planet, hoping to discover not only whether there is life on Mars but whether it is advanced and imperialistic.
From the outset, nothing goes as planned. An uncanny prophesy coupled with an unexpected alien starship escort ends in a series of catastrophic events that give John plenty to think about as he makes the interminable journey back to Earth. The mysteries of Mars, woven into a complex tapestry of international intrigue, will lead him to answers even the most faithful fear.
As he starts to put the pieces of the universal puzzle together, the pieces of his own life fall irrevocably apart, but, as he must constantly remind himself, God does indeed have a plan for him.
Book 2, the Mars Hills Classified trilogy — adult science fiction
The Proof is my favorite of the Mars Hills Classified trilogy. I suspect this is because the interpersonal relationships move to the forefront, as do the inner conflicts. But I think there is plenty of science and exploration for those who enjoy that aspect of science fiction. There was much more intrigue, mystery, and suspense, too.
Highly recommend for all readers.
