Comfortable. Safe. Orderly.
That’s what Mark Hemmings happily thinks of his law student life until one balmy Florida night he foolishly runs out to gawk up at that light in the sky. Zap! Mark is kidnapped by space aliens.
When the aliens’ experiment on Mark teaches him a little too much, Mark is able to accidentally steal an alien ship and plunge back to Earth only to land smack into the clutches of General Peerless and Dr. Montgomery, the warring co-directors of Little Island. Little Island, the U.S. government’s secret facility where the government “collects” abducted returnees who’ve been taught by the aliens to utilize their brainpower in special new ways, like telepathy and telekinesis, or in Mark’s case, how to fly a spaceship with just his thoughts. Being the only person who can –sort of– fly the spacecraft makes Mark just what the government is looking for, but an imprisoned life on Little Island isn’t exactly what Mark had in mind. Not that Mark’s feelings matter, because no Returnee has ever escaped Little Island. But then again no Returnee has ever arrived with his very own spaceship!
This is a novel about aliens in which there are no aliens, but a main character fighting for free will, as he, the Doctor and the General, battle each other to triumph, the Doctor by clever manipulation, the General by crushing force, and Mark by his cunning, wits... and spaceship! A humorous story of chase and determination, and above all else, refusing to forget who you really are, despite the craftiest of temptations.
