Overview

The start of an epic sci-fi trilogy with an unforgettable hero

In the first book of this series from acclaimed crime fiction writer Adrian McKinty, Jamie O'Neill and his mother set out for a new home on an island off the coast of Ireland, a windswept place inherited from a long-lost relative. It's a chance to start again after the cancer that took one of Jamie's arms. But Muck Island is no sanctuary. Many strange surprises await the O'Neills there, the strangest being the one locked in the top of its ancient lighthouse. Discovering it will send Jamie on an interstellar mission that could change the course of his life, and the universe, forever.
