Valkerie Jansen is tough, beautiful, and soon to be the most envied woman on earth. Every man on the planet is in love with her—and she's just discovered life on Mars.

Shortly after Valkerie comes down with a mysterious illness, she is attacked by someone—or something—that can't possibly exist. Everyone but Bob Kaganovski thinks she's hallucinating and even Bob seems to be wavering.

NASA, fearing "back contamination" to earth, sets plans in motion to permanently quarantine the four astronauts on Mars.

Is Valkerie's "fifth man" real? If not, then who or what is trying to kill the crew?

This "Writer's Journey" edition of The Fifth Man contains three bonus appendices (over 20 pages!) for fiction writers and anyone interested in getting the inside scoop on how John and Randy develop their stories. Learn some of their most powerful techniques, including story drivers, high concept, scene structure, and more.
