Overview

People disappear on Caliban Island.

Veteran-agent Willie Deane flies down to see why.

It seems an ordinary speck in the Caribbean-white-sand beaches, palms, turquoise waters-but something malignant is newborn here.

It has plans.

One of its plans is to kill Willie Deane.

He has no weapons, just his wits.

He's up against an army of mercenaries, even a man-eating Bengal tiger. What he faces has a brilliant mind, but no heart.

Willie Deane is merely human. But he does have a heart.

HERE'S WHAT A READER OF THIS THRILLER HAD TO SAY-

"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!"

ANOTHER READER SAID-

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

"...it 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."


ANOTHER REACTION-

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.



ONE MORE READER'S COMMENT-

"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."
