The newest high-concept dystopian thriller, by author Réal Laplaine, is a contemporary fiction, bordering on both geopolitical and sci-fi, an epic story in its scope. Earth Escape captures the political, military and ecological issues facing us all, and vaults the reader just over a decade into the future when the first manned mission to an exo-planet, Earth II, is being prepared, and finally, launches. The story is told from the viewpoint of the captain of the star ship, Evolution. Jim Tale is not the typical role-model for an astronaut. He is a misfit, deeply troubled by hauntings of his dead wife, and obsessed with finding out the truth about existence. His background as a NASA engineer, and moreover, his ability to innovate and be self-initiating makes him the optimum choice for a mission that will take 27 years and which has an 87% chance of failure. His only companion, besides the crew who remain in hyper-sleep, is CASS, the most advanced Ai computer in existence. Together, they encounter impossible odds, and with the help of CASS, Jim Tale not only faces alien encounters, raptors and near-death experiences, but the chance to find out the truth about the Universe, how it was created, who created it and WHY. All the while the clock is ticking as Earth verges on the final and ultimate holocaust, global nuclear war. Earth Escape will challenge you to question everything you know about the Big Bang and Divine creation.
