The Return

(2007)
(The third book in the Mars Hill Classified Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
 
The Return picks up six years after the events of book 2 in the series, with John Wells leading another Mars mission. In the opening chapters, John discovers two things: first, there has been another manned Mars mission on the planet simultaneously with John's, launched by Rex Edwards's Delta-V Corporation as an advance colony. Rex was part of that mission, but died not longer after arriving on Mars. And second, he discovers the wreckage of a couple of the "alien spiders" from the first books in the series, and it's clear that their components originated on Earth - putting the lie to Malcolm Raines's new religion.
Meanwhile, Amy Wells, John's wife presumed dead after the catastrophic helicopter crash in book 2, is alive, with their daughter, living in captivity in Raines's complex in Slovenia. On Mars, the astronauts' Earth Return Vehicle, in orbit, is apparently hit by meteorites and ruined. They begin to move their entire base, on wheels, to the site of the colony. Kerry and the FBI monitor, through secret surveillance, Raines's compound in Slovenia. They rescue Amy, Alice, and the Wells boys.
In preparation for impregnating the hundreds of teenage clone girls who first showed up in book 2, Raines moves them all to China; Monique escapes and stays behind, then plots with the FBI on how to apprehend and stop Raines.
