Frank Got Abducted
Author: Andrew Heaton
Format: Kindle Edition
It’s one thing to wake up in a strange town with your pants on backwards. It’s quite another to do so sober. Frank is perplexed, and a little terrified. Less about the skinny gray monsters which haunt his dreams than of the possibility that they are aliens in real life, making him the sort of person who believes in them. Which doesn’t make sense, of course. If a species were smart enough to build intergalactic spaceships, surely they would be competent enough to return him to the same address they abduct him from?
His sister Hillary is hungover on a bus, returning to her home town after a failed attempt at adult life. She notices what appears to be her college friend, but the man insists they have never met before. So do the next two doppelgangers she meets.
Sephus is a farmer who loves conspiracy theories almost as much as a boom harvest of wheat, so he is thrilled when crop circles start popping up around town. His neighbor is less happy when he finds unexplained cattle mutilations on his ranch.
Together they must all piece together how a serial killer, an extraterrestrial romance, and Frank’s intergalactic colonoscopies connect to a larger alien plot. And by doing so discover that aliens are just as bumbling as the human beings they suck up in spaceships.
