In spite of the sensationalism associated with aliens or extraterrestrials showing up on Earth, and the Hollywood spin which normally amounts to ET trying to wipe out humans, what if an extraterrestrial showed up one day, in fact a beautiful woman at that, on our darkest hour, when global powers decide to play ping pong with nuclear weapons and the future of the human race? And what if she set her sights on getting one man to step up to the plate and stop that nuclear confrontation from happening?
TWILIGHT VISITOR is a contemporary geopolitical thriller and high-concept novel, based entirely on very real circumstances in our world today, considering that over 20,000 nuclear warheads still exist in the arsenals of various governments, and certainly not necessarily the most altruistic or passive ones at that.
Mateus Cordozo, a Portuguese bio-engineer, who is vacationing alone on the shores of Portugal on a blustery February day, is suddenly faced with an exotic woman who shows up on that lonely stretch of beach only to inform him that the world is about to see its first nuclear war and that he alone holds the key to stopping it. Why she is there, what prompted the intervention, and what role Earth plays in the future of the cosmos are questions which Mateus Cordozo must reconcile, a task which challenges every fiber of his being. And most importantly, he must come to terms with taking responsibility for doing something which seems impossible for any one man to accomplish before it is too late.
“The story races along with (the) pace of a Tom Clancy thriller but the depth of the plot is rich in complexities philosophical ideas. Laplaine has a good descriptive style that never interferes with the flow of the narrative as he builds highly credible scenarios that give the reader a true feeling that this is all too close for comfort. Highly recommended for readers who like fast paced thrillers but with an ingenious twist.” Book-Reviewer.com
