The first time Tucker saw the disk, his father disappeared into thin air. The Reverend Adrian Feye had climbed onto the roof to fix a loose shingle and suddenly he was gone. An hour later, the Reverend came walking up the road, tattered and sunburned, bringing with him an unspeaking, yellow-haired, dark-eyed girl. He refused to say where he had been, instead declaring that there would be no more prayer in the Feye house: He had lost his faith. Now Tucker s family is unraveling. The Reverend spends hours brooding in his study. Tucker s once warmhearted and loving mother withdraws from the world, claiming she doesn t care to be watched by ghosts. And, above them, the unearthly disk comes and goes. Then, one day, both of Tucker s parents vanish. From the distant past to an even more distant and terrifying future, Tucker desperately searches for his parents and discovers the astonishing secrets of the Klaatu diskos."
