When a mysterious island appears off the coast of San Francisco, it represents an opportunity. For Damian Cooke, professor of philosophy and avid paranormal researcher, it offers a chance to add legitimacy to his research. But for his long-time friend and colleague, it may represent a haven. Literature professor Catilen Taylor has always been ‘different.’ As an Empath, she’s struggled all her life with the ability to sense others’ emotions.
Beyond the military barricade they discover paradise unspoiled by modern advances. A sanctuary the travelers believe uninhabited, until they meet the island’s enigmatic ruler, who invites them to share the wonders of his bathhouse. Despite their host’s generosity, all is not well. Soldiers have abandoned their duties to partake of the island’s amenities and Catilen senses a nightmare lurking beneath the paradise.
When a scandal engulfs her companion, Catilen may be forced to reveal her empathic abilities. Worse, neither is sure how long the island will remain on Earth. If they can’t solve the riddle in time, they may be trapped wherever the island goes when it vanishes.
