FOUND IN SPACE…
A team of scientists has just made the most important discovery in human history.
What the discovery means is huge. Found on the planet Mars, a harmless microbe nicknamed “Crimsy” may have brought the very first life to Earth, hitching a ride on rocks or dust from the Red Planet billions of years ago.
But to find out for sure means studies and tests in labs here at home.
Not so fast, say corporate and government special interests. They’re holding our history-making visitor hostage on an orbiting space station and threatening a global battle for control.
How do six scientists and three space station astronauts—as scrappy as they are dedicated—fight world governments, competing claims, patent lawyers, Homeland Security, the FBI—and two trillionaires with hidden agendas who helped finance the expedition?
How will they bring Crimsy back to the planet it might have helped create?
Forced into the fray against overwhelming personal and professional odds, the scientists must solve key mysteries about their own lives as they lead a charge to solve the mystery of life itself.
