Ninth US Cavalry First Sergeant Ben Carter and his special detachment are assigned to find geologist, William Heatherton, and his team of researchers, believed lost somewhere in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico Territory. In their search, they encounter a strange boy, alone in the mountains, who talks of a mysterious prophet who seeks pilgrims for the hidden city of Eden to protect them from the Army of Satan, and the boy's teachings have led him to conclude that Ben and his men are the vanguard of that army. Is the boy, Moses, delusional, or is there truth in his tale of a hidden settlement? Ben senses that the answer to that question is linked to the fate of the missing geologist. In order to fulfill his mission, he must find a way to overcome the xenophobic and racist teachings of the prophet, and put aside his own personal prejudices. In the hidden canyons and valleys of the mountains, a clash of values unfolds. Who will survive?

Europa s Lost Expedition

The book also covers extremophiles and the various possible biomes on—and inside of—Europa.

This classically styled, chilling murder mystery about an expedition under the ice of Jupiter’s ocean moon Europa, backed up by the latest scientific findings on this icy satellite. The science fiction premise explores real possibilities of exploring other bodies in the Solar System, including probing their possible astrobiology. Now that the most recent world war has concluded on Earth, human explorers are returning to exploration, carrying out a full-court press to journey into the alien abyss using tele-operated biorobotics and human-tended submersibles. Nine scientists head out to Jupiter’s icy ocean-moon. But at Europa’s most remote outpost, one by one, the team members who shared the cruise out begin to die under suspicious circumstances. All was well until humans begin diving into Europa’s subsurface ocean. The deaths have all the symptoms of some sort of plague, despite Europa’s seemingly sterile environment. Besides providing thrills, a science section covers the very latest in undersea robotics, discussing the assets future explorers may have available for exploring subsurface oceans on moons including Europa, Enceladus and Titan. The book explores the most recent results in Europa research, from safe radiation levels for human habitation, landing sites, subsurface ocean currents and makeup, possible plate tectonics, geyser activity on the surface, volcanic activity on the ocean floor, and Europa’s bizarre exosphere. The book also covers extremophiles and the various possible biomes on—and inside of—Europa.
