Action & Adventure

In a forgotten bar in eastern Turkey, ex-National Geographic photojournalist Sam Ward is hired by Faye Roberts to find her missing father…an eccentric professor who disappeared searching for Noah’s Ark.

With the mountain closed to all tourists, climbers and expeditions, the two have to sneak their way past determined soldiers.

Once on the mountain, the danger only intensifies. From rock slides to avalanches, it’s almost as if the mountain itself is offended by their presence.

The search continues. Higher and higher they climb, following well-known paths…and even forging new ones.

But the two searchers are not quite prepared for what they are about to find—a secret stronghold for unleashing hell on earth.

Hard Science Fiction
2067 was the year I died for the first time… It was painful. Had I known how often I’d be expected to die over the next several millennia, I might have made a stronger effort to stay dead. The year actually started off rather nice. I finished my PhD in high energy physics and was promoted to Lieutenant Commander in the United States Air Force. My first posting after the promotion was to the Lunar One Air Base where I worked with my father, Dr. Robert Kimbridge on “The Project.” “The Project” was our name for a VASIMR Ion Drive interplanetary space craft that used Thorium LFTR reactors for both shielding and power. Capable of a sustained point one G of acceleration, our prototype was expected to make the Mars run in less than a week. By the end of November the ESX Arizona was ready for her first trial runs and I was her pilot. History has an odd way of repeating itself.
