Aliens have landed in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Although they claim to be conducting research on the region and making connections with their human hosts, many people suspect that they have more sinister plans in mind. When the death of a young boy stirs up the simmering conflict, humans and aliens are caught up in the fallout. Everyone involved may learn a harsh lesson. This short but densely packed novel builds on the history of colonization in the Caribbean to offer a memorable take on the alien invasion genre.
