About the Book

Dr. Thomas D. McClure, a Harvard professor of linguistics, receives an unusual request from the government, specifically, NASA, about taking a sabbatical from teaching and undertaking a designated top-secret assignment. Robuku Makolu, aka Robby McKoy, native to an insignificant South Pacific island and director of Remote Island Ministries, is in San Francisco, CA, for an international conference, when he is contacted unexpectedly by a clairvoyant childhood friend he hasn’t seen in nearly forty years. In a matter of days, Robby is drawn into a top-secret assignment placing his people and their way of life in jeopardy. The discovery of two alien gadgets, a break-in at NASA’s Ames Research Center, and a CIA investigation, force Robby into a world far beyond Earth that orbits in the crosshairs of the U.S. government where Tom convinces Robby nothing is as it seems. Is Tom a sociopathic manipulator or does he have the voice of the government’s secret exoplanet buried within him? This psychological thriller with sci-fi elements will cause us to wrestle with how much of life is beyond what we can see.
