PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A RE-PRINT WITH A NEW COVER
In a bleak future, where government systems are breaking down, and poverty and violence reign, on an abandoned farm in Montana, Susannah has a simple plan. She'll capture an alien, sell him to the resistance, and use the money to save her son.
Instead, Susannah has an arrogant alien trapped in a pit who acts as if she's the prisoner. He wants to kill her dog and insists she should care for the wound he sustained when he fell into the pit she dug to trap him. On top of that, she has no way of knowing if the resistance got her message. Every day that passes, she doubts her decision to hand Azagor over to the resistance.
Her son, her baby, is being held by people who considered him unclean because he was conceived out of wedlock—and time's running out.
