He was told his was the only name on their list. But for brilliant young anthropologist Paul Carlsson, asked to examine a cache of bones found on a remote jungle island, fascination soon turns to fear. Because waiting for him east of Java is evidence of something that shouldn't exist; a revelation that if made public will turn scientific and religious orthodoxy on its head.
