Secrecy shrouds the first mission to land human explorers on the planet Mars. Even David Debacco, the Director of Mission Support, doesn't know the identity of his sponsors or their true agenda. As David struggles to keep the brave Mars explorers alive, an expanding web of deceit threatens the mission and the woman he loves from afar.

Traveling to Mars in a bold pursuit of knowledge, Anna Schweitzer barely perceives the Earthly plots against her team. Despite impossible odds, she looks to Mars for hope. Will she survive long enough to reach a New World and battle its untamed surface? Or will she succumb to dangers in space more terrifying than anything left behind on Earth?

About the Author

Brian Enke is a Lead Computer Scientist at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, USA. He has worked on dozens of space missions and NASA projects since 2001, but various Mars and asteroid missions have always been his favorites because of the potential benefits to human exploration.

Brian is currently the Lead Science Pipeline Engineer for the New Horizons mission, the spacecraft that flew past Pluto several years ago and Arrokoth more recently. His main job is to receive data from the spacecraft and construct it into useful images and other science products - and then to make the products/images available to the general public.

In his spare time, Brian mentors a high school FIRST Robotics team in Nederland, Colorado (team 1584, the Pirates, now in hibernation, arrrrr!). He also volunteers as the Chapter Contact for the local Rocky Mountain Mars Society chapter and has previously served as a volunteer technical adviser to many Mars-related industry groups. His outreach events include public talks about space topics to middle/high schools, private groups, and radio/TV audiences.

Prior to his lengthy career in space science, Brian worked for 17 years as a systems integrator at Bell Labs in Naperville, Illinois, USA. While at the Labs, he helped manage the most complex software project in the world.... which gives him a special perspective in complexity management of large projects. Now he applies this perspective to the space industry, battling the number one issue slowing down our progress in space: complexity.
