How can a colony on Mars survive when the greatest danger on the planet is humanity itself?All contact is lost with the first, privately funded, colony on Mars during a long and destructive sandstorm. Satellite imagery of the aftermath shows extensive damage to the facility. The fifty-four colonists who called it home are presumed dead. Some time later, a new mission sets down on the planet surface to investigate what remains of the derelict site, and crew biologist, Dr. Jann Malbec, soon discovers that the facility had developed into to a full-blown human DNA editing experiment—with unsuspecting colonists as the guinea pigs.However, now that the truth of what was going on in the colony is revealed, powerful Earth based corporations begin to fight for control of this extraordinary genetic research. But Dr. Malbec begins to realize that returning this technology to Earth could doom humanity to a worldwide pandemic of apocalyptic proportions. She must do everything she can to prevent that from happening—even if it means that she might never see her home planet again.

Author Bio: Gerald M. Kilby

G. M. Kilby grew up on a diet of Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clark, and Frank Herbert. This developed into a taste for Ian M. Banks, Stephen R. Donaldson, and everything ever written by Michael Crichton. He lives in the city of Dublin, Ireland, in the same neighborhood as Bram Stoker, and can be sometimes seen tapping away on a small laptop in Bram’s Cafe, with his dog Loki.
