An exotic and beautiful woman appears one blustery day on the coastal shores of Afife, Portugal, where she “happens” to encounter Mateus Cordozo, a bioengineer who is “vacationing”, but who in truth is simply trying to bring order to his purposeless life. Mateus is about to find out that the alluring woman is not from our world, and that she has come on an intervention.
TWILIGHT VISITOR visits the harrowing reality of a nuclear confrontation between China and Iran over oil. With over 20,000 nuclear warheads still in existence today, Laplaine depicts an intensely plausible global scenario. This is a thriller that raises many questions about environmental energy issues, nuclear stockpiling, and which seamlessly introduces an alien intervention, a beautiful woman, an off-worlder, who comes to earth to try and save it from suicide.
“Réal Laplaine entertains the reader but far more important he challenges us to consider the very plausible presence of off-worlders and draws our attention to significant issues we should be addressing – all in a language so eloquent that is mesmerizing.” Grady Harp, Amazon Top Reviewer
