Thirteen years later, from the International Space Station, John witnesses a terrorist attack that decimates the nations capitol and national security systems. When its followed by strange indications of alien life on Mars, Johns call puts him in the midst of a great controversy that tests him and his faith to the limit.

Known as Nick, he always has a way out--and things are never as they first appear with him.
Navy Captain John Wells, technician for the International Space Station, watches from orbit as the attack is launched. Dealing with crisis inside and outside the station, John still manages to help the FBI track the terrorists, who are sending most of the nation's leaders on a wild goose chase to Iran.
Special Agent Terrance Kerry, collaborating with John, follows a far-out lead on the terrorists, finding out too late just how brilliant the clown called Nick really is.
And Malcolm Raines, an obscure basketball player turned preacher, claims that Earth will hear from "the Father Race". NASA has already been receiving strange imagery from Mars, and a robotic mission to the Red Planet turns up seemingly irrefutable evidence for intelligent life.
Two men and one woman are about to embark on the first manned mission to the planet.
The Evidence is a fascinating tale of the near future (though the dates mentioned are now past) that presents a delightful cast of characters.
With a clear and colorful narrative, Austin Boyd engages the reader with many questions and some quirky humor.
"I want to be your Ruth. If your family includes little green Martians, then I need to make them my people, too."
To sum it up in one simple sentence: this is a techno-thriller, a Military novel that crosses over the bridge into the realm of science fiction.
My rating is five out of five stars. I'm really looking forward to reading the next two books (The Proof; The Return) in the Mars Hill Classified trilogy.
