red dot 2
by Eugene Linn
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 direction and to heal old personal relationships strained to the breaking point.
Claire’s son and Peggy, the love of his life, are part of a generation that knows nothing but upheaval since Contact. Their search for direction 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.
