At age 25, Mark finds himself alone after the death of his parents, so he loses himself in his work as a forensic pathologist, leaving no time for friends or a social life of any kind. His life dramatically changes the day he meets Iris Blue, an attractive waitress and nursing student. After a whirlwind romance, he's certain that he has found his soulmate, the woman of his dreams.
As Mark and Iris begin to build their lives together, they meet Hal and Roxie Lundstrom and become close friends. Strange occurrences are reported throughout Colorado. There are sightings of unidentified lights in the skies and incidents of cattle mutilations. Then, one day Iris vanishes, and Mark's world is turned upside down. Months go by, but there are no leads. There are only questions, and the case goes cold.
A discovery in a faraway desert requires investigation and expertise of forensic scientists and medical personnel from around the world. Mark hesitates, but then decides to embark on this bizarre expedition. The scientists are in a state of shock when evidence points to the existence of an alien species.
No one is prepared for what secrets are buried with the souls of the desert.
Will Mark ever find out what happened to his dear Iris?

Don't be deceived by the cover. This was quite a sweet love story between the main characters Mark and Iris. Did Mark ever find out what killed his older brother? Had he been attacked by the aliens? What about when Iris looked up, saw something in sky and then didn't remember anything after that until she woke up in her apartment several hours later? A modern twist for the doomed alien invaders. Orson Welles and Herbert George Wells would be proud. The Lundstroms are great characters. I wish I had neighbors with BBQ food and pitchers of margaritas at the ready. A great read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
