Alien Eyes

David Silver / Elaki Series #2

  • “Hightower takes elements of cyberpunk and novels about a benevolent alien invasion and combines them with the gritty realism of a police procedural to make stories that are completely her own … and believable future with a believable alien culture … interesting settings, intriguing ideas, fascinating characters and a high level of suspense” —Forty Knox Turret

When pouchlings of the stingray-shaped, lime-scented Elaki are found murdered in their beds, Detective David Silver immediately fixes his attention on Angel Eyes, who claims to have been a victim of persecution on her homeworld, and who’s achieved almost saintly status in the eyes of both human and Elaki.
