From the Publisher:
For hundreds of years, unseen aliens - called the "Reapers" - have abducted people from their homes in broad daylight, leaving no trace of their existence behind. After they abduct his sister, David Paxton leaves his career as a high-school math teacher to join the Space Fleet and find a way to bring his sister home. Out on a routine patrol under his command, he becomes the first person to see an alien ship. In an attempt to disable it, Paxton accidentally kills his wing man and his best friend. Paxton is discharged from the service after no evidence can be found that he actually saw one of the Reaper's ships.Suddenly, the abductions stop. The Reapers communicate their intentions to return all living persons and never abduct a human again. Thousands of people return home, dazed and with little memory of their experiences. But some, including Paxton's sister, never return. Paxton is convinced the Reapers have lied, continuing to hold people on a prison planet light-years away, his sister among them, and continuing to threaten the nascent Unified Earth Parliament's tenuous governance. He fights for his belief for 15 years, first as college professor and then as the Subminister of Science assigned to study deep space, a position he hopes he can use to find his sister.And then a deep space outpost detects evidence of the Reapers and pinpoints the location of the former prison planet?complete with signs of human life?a discovery that sets off a chain of events that will unravel the narrative of the past two centuries as Paxton races to uncover the horrible truth behind what really happened to the Unreturned.
