Eccentric Sunset Tuttle spent his life searching in vain for forms of alien life. Thirty years after his death, a stone tablet inscribed with cryptic, indecipherable symbols is found in the possession of Tuttle's onetime lover, and antiquities dealer Alex Benedict is anxious to discover what secret the tablet holds. It could be proof that Tuttle had found what he was looking for.

Reader was not good at changing voices and seemed to forget which voices were for which characters. Story was also very slow and lacked the mystery of previous novels, but I’ll read the next one because I feel this was a fluke compared to other McDevitt books.

Tucked away in the rolling hills of rural western Virginia lies the storybook resort of Storyton Hall, catering to book lovers who want to get away from it all. To increase her number of bookings, resort manager Jane Steward has decided to host a Murder and Mayhem week so that fans of the mystery genre can gather together for some role-playing and fantasy crime solving.

This book was surprisingly delightful! Jane is very Nancy Drew and much of the story reminds me of "The Librarians" TV movies & now show. The references to great works of literature from such a wide variety of genres is just plain fun! Although in some places a bit hokey, the book really is quirky and fun from beginning to end. I look forward to more.
