When an alien creature menaces two scientists marooned on a desert island, Rose, who has lost her memory, must rely on Thomas, though his behavior is suspicious. In California, Kailey is pressed into a life of crime by her corrosive lover, following a psychologically abusive past. As each woman faces invaders of different sorts, the questions mount. What is their underlying connection? What is Thomas trying to hide? And when will the beast strike next?
"Kaptanoglu presents a short, briskly paced novel that’s full of entertaining plot twists...Kailey's first-person narration is compelling, personal, and occasionally unreliable, and her desire to earn a pilot's license makes for a sublime metaphor."
"Highly recommended for readers who enjoy surprising twists of plot, mysteries, and stories that quickly move into delightfully unexpected realms of psychological recovery and self-inspection."
