New SF Novel The Silver Dart

My new science fiction novel, The Silver Dart has released recently.  See an earlier post for the buy link at Amazon.
Jade Cromwell cannot understand why his genius wife, Darla, left with aliens two years earlier leaving him and their daughter, Missy.  He knew they would eventually return and take Missy too as she was nearly as smart as Darla.  Six men appeared on Mars as Jade and Missy were headed for the breakfast diner.  Jade, Missy and their dog, Spike had the six men beaten when a seventh appeared and bashed Jade and Spike with a club.  After they recuperate Jade and Spike leave on a journey fraught with dangers to find Darla and Missy.  Darla's high tech ship the Silver Dart gives them hope to find them as they apparently left for a disant galaxy.  Along the way they meet militant people and people who are friendly.  They learn why Darla and Missy have been abducted.  A menace in space threatens millions of people and the explosion resulting sends Jade into a parallel universe.  Will he find his way back to our universe?
Leave a comment for the short synopsis and after May 8th I'll make a drawing by random number generator.  Later I may have a print copy as a prize after I see how this goes.
