A pair of intriguing aliens pull at the hearts and minds of Neil and Mavra while the government is bent on research and analysis.Terry Persun’s latest science fiction novel explores the idea of alien contact through his main characters’ Neil and Mavra Altman—a detective who can think independently from both sides of his brain and the professional psychic he’s married to. After two young boys find what they believe is a dinosaur egg, the military gets involved immediately. When aliens emerge from the eggs, Neil and Mavra are struck with a moral decision whether to allow the military to analyze the aliens or to help the aliens go free. Their travels eventually take them to Area 51, where Neil and Mavra are forced to come up with a foolproof plan.

Not moving and not talking, just still.
