About the Book

When Japanese nature show host Daisuke Matsumori finds himself on an alien world, he hopes to rekindle his passion for his work. Traveling through a newly-discovered wormhole in the Papuan highlands, he joins biologist Anne Houlihan on Junction, a patchwork planet of competing alien ecosystems. 

When their exploratory party crashes in the alien wilderness, Daisuke and Anne try to lead bickering soldiers and civilians back to civilization alive. As they trek across one unearthly biome after another and members of the party continue to die, however, Daisuke wonders whether human politics might be more deadly than alien biology. 

One of his companions might be a murderer.

Wow!!! Just WOW!!! Who knew there could be so much deceit in a book. When I first started reading this book, I was like. “Cool there going to an alien world. Then things went bad, pretty quickly from there.

The worst part is when you think, you know who the murderer is, the ball is dropped. This is a breath of fresh air for Flame Tree Press.
