Dr Harry Vanderspeigle looks like a reclusive retired doctor. But in reality he's a stranded alien, who crash landed three years ago. He's trying to hide while he waits for rescue, using his mind powers to convince humans that he is "normal". This works fine until the town's doctor is murdered, and the sheriff calls on Vanderspeigle for help. Harry finds he likes the company of humans, and the challenge of detection, but his nurse is beginning to wonder why her eyesight blurs when he's around...

This is a fun story, with some great artwork, and hints of more twists to come.
