Is seeing believing? With nothing left for him on Earth, Rear Admiral John Wells didn’t hesitate to lead a third NASA team to Mars, but he never dreamed that one day they’d look out their laboratory module into the lights of a slow-moving vehicle not their own. In the third installment of the Mars Hill Classified series, life on Mars becomes increasingly more unpredictable as the past collides with the future, and nothing, not even the dead, is as it seems.

Meanwhile, back on Earth, the fate of hundreds, including John Wells’ family—presumed dead these last six years—rests precariously in the hands of Malcolm Raines, self proclaimed Guardian of the Mother Seed and Principal Cleric of Saint Michael’s Remnant, and his insidious plans for the Father Race.

Wells will find himself in a race against time and all odds to expose the truth: about Mars, about Malcolm Raines, and, if he’s very brave, about himself.

The Return, the final chapter for John Wells and his family, and an early preview of bioethics plots to be developed in Austin Boyd’s next novels.
