Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse are ready to crack open a new case file as the next chapter of the acclaimed science-fiction/murder mystery takes their curious and compassionate alien detective to New York City!

For years, a stranded alien has hidden in plain sight disguised as Dr. Harry Vanderspeigel in the small town of Patience, Washington where he moonlights as a detective. But when a startling new mystery catches his attention, Harry ditches the quiet Pacific Northwest for the bustle of New York City, accompanied by one of his only human friends—who happens to be a Native American shaman. Prepare for an out-of-this-world thrill ride as this unlikely team takes on their biggest case yet!

The acclaimed sci-fi/murder-mystery series continues in #3! Arriving in New York City, Harry’s telepathic talents are almost overwhelmed by the human chaos, but he and Shaman Twelvetrees soon find his strange, possibly alien–contact! A surprising connection to New York’s art world and graffiti culture is found, and Harry’s very private new acquaintance could take him a step closer to communicating with his home planet.
