Saul Abercrombie, a seemingly eccentric billionaire, had a project. He wants to undertake a complete reforestation on an island that is not exactly what it seems. While on the outside this looks like a wonderful philanthropic deed, Saul has ulterior motives for this task. He is hoping that once the trees are planted, the aliens will return. He calls in an expert in the field and Tom, desperate for money agrees to take on the project.
But there is more going on here than meets the eye, which is what I love about Cottam’s books. Things start off bleak and continue on to the Whoa! at the end. I look forward to more of one of my favorite authors next works!
