Ephesus is a talented young scientist who has spent the last several years of his life in prison for his Christian beliefs. When he is personally summoned to Mars to work for a prestigious governor, who promises his family’s release in exchange for providing a formula needed to complete an important project, Ephesus thinks he may have found his ticket to freedom. But when the project becomes progressively more sinister—and his enigmatic overseer refuses to answer questions—Ephesus begins to wonder if the offer is too good to be true.
Alternating between Ephesus’s and Dr. Nic’s point of view, Project 74 tells the story of the deception and heartbreak that led into Red Rain.
