Something strange is happening on Caliban Island. People disappear here.

Veteran-agent Willie Deane flies down, undercover, to see why the island suddenly blacked out, cutting all communication with the outside world.

What he finds is like nothing he's ever faced.

It's not just the man-eating Bengal tiger. Or the psychopathic mercenaries. Or the killer robots. Or the mystery woman, clearly dangerous, who manages the island's research facility.

It's the mastermind behind it all-an intelligence beyond imagining, but with no heart. It has plans for us all. Its immediate plan, though, is for Agent Willie Deane to be dead.

Willie Deane is merely human. He's experienced, highly trained. He has a heart. But, in this battle, his only weapons are his wits.

Will that be enough?


"I often read during lunch and found I was taking very long lunches, not wanting to put the book down. All of the right elements for a great read. Well Done!"


"I liked this book lots. The storyline is both compelling and a little frightening when considering our collective future.

" was hard trying to be an adult and not gobble up huge chunks in one sitting. There were some very late nights when I should have been sleeping, but I couldn't quite put the book down. Partly this was due to the plot and partly because the details and emerging backstories perfectly fleshed out characters and illuminated events.

"Now that I've finished reading, I'm still thinking about the plot's twists and turns."


Five Stars- Believable thriller
(Reviewed in the United States on January 16, 2020)
The arrogance of playing God from a failure of understanding humanity.
Fast read, I couldn't stay away from reading it.

"I really enjoyed your book! Interesting concept. The characters were very good, especially the knowledge of the main character, the poisonous yellow frog, a female who could handle a front loader, everything worked and kept the reader turning the pages. The ending was perfect, justice was done!
"Keep writing, you are very good."
