Publisher's Description

John Wells spent all of his adult life devoted to one goal: astronaut selection. From humble beginnings, he waited on God’s timing, becoming an experienced Navy pilot and spacecraft systems engineer. One amazing day, fighting a Russian attack submarine, he received the call to space and to his destiny. Thirteen years later, from the International Space Station, John witnesses a terrorist attack that decimates the nation’s capitol and national security systems. When it’s followed by strange indications of alien life on Mars, John’s call puts him in the midst of a great controversy that tests him and his faith to the limit.


Self-proclaimed prophet Reverend Nick Rykert becomes a national lightning rod as he predicts the aliens’ behavior and messages. When aerospace industrialist Rex Edwards defies NASA by challenging the world to go to Mars on his thousand-day timetable, a savvy Presidential administration responds. But first, an unmanned robot is sent to observe the aliens in advance. Meanwhile, FBI Special Agent Vincent Kerry begins to pull threads of intelligence together that point to the surprising identity of the murderous terrorists.
To his surprise, John is called to crew the Mars mission, and he and his close-knit family struggle with the conflict and pain generated by this apparent good news. His friend, Reverend Jeff Dempsey, publicly preaches the need to keep the alien issue in balance and prayer: God calls all to a personal relationship with Him, and aliens, if they do exist, do not negate the Bible’s truths or the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Ham radio enthusiast Ronnie Williams foils NASA and exposes on the Internet the true nature of the frightening alien images from Mars. As millions fearfully watch menacing spider-like craft advance on the unmanned Earth Rover that has just landed, the aliens offer a surprising gift, and John realizes that this is the moment to which God has called him. This is where he will make his mark; he was made for such a time as this.

    An American civil terrorist--with a liking for Macadamia nuts, classical music, and Russian doll clowns--cripples the nation's capital, and blinds space surveillance. 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.
