Aliens are long gone. They left no trace—except for thousands of mysterious red dots glowing peacefully around the world.
But eighteen years later, the idea that we are not alone is tearing us apart
Former president Al Douthart and Claire Montague, who led NASA’s response to the aliens, struggle to provide answers and to heal old personal relationships strained to the breaking point.
Claire’s son and the love of his life are part of a generation that knows nothing but upheaval since Contact. Their search for answers is especially painful and confused.
Will democracy and other trusted old values save us from chaos, or must we surrender to an all-powerful dictator?
And now, a threat more perilous than social upheaval seems to be emerging from beyond Earth.

Eugene Linn came late to novel writing, and by a circuitous path.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. After that, Linn took a break from literature. A long one.
At the height of the Vietnam War, Linn entered the US Army, where he studied Chinese Mandarin at the Defense Language Institute. Upon leaving the Army, he studied at the University of Kansas, receiving a bachelor’s in Journalism and a master’s in East Asian Studies, with a focus on Chinese language and politics.
Linn went on to be a freelance reporter, working out of Hong Kong for consultant Watson Wyatt Worldwide and numerous news outlets. His specific assignments included writing an annual report on China’s social insurance system for Watson Wyatt Worldwide, and daily Hong Kong stock market reports for UPI. He also got married while working in Hong Kong, and after 31 years, so far, so good.
With the demise of print journalism, Linn went to work at the VA Medical Center in Topeka, Kansas, first as a Housekeeping Aide and then as a Human Resources Assistant. The work was hard, sometimes rewarding, and decidedly unliterary.
After entering semi-retirement, Linn was hit by the literary bug, like a long-dormant virus. He decided to write a novel. It was fun. It turned out to be a reasonably respectable product. Now he has written a sequel. He plans to write more novels in the future.
