“Paranoia, psychological nightmares, and all within the giant expanse of space, with a NASA crew that’s losing their minds as well … Obscura by Joe Hart has it all. “
A new form of dementia has taken hold, aggressive and relentless, affecting people of all ages. The symptoms are unlike anything we’ve ever seen. After losing her husband to the disease, Dr. Gillian Ryan is desperate to find a cure, as her young daughter is showing symptoms now as well. A unique opportunity comes about: travel to a space station where a NASA crew has been stricken with symptoms very similar to the disease.
But Gillian has her own demons: A secret addiction, and a growing paranoia. This journey is becoming a nightmare, with violence at every turn. She is losing her grip on reality. As she begins to question the true nature of the mission, and the motivations of the crew, she fears time is running out before she can find a cure.
