Tobey and his older sister Megan, raised in poverty in Ireland, are abandoned by their mother while Tobey is still a baby. Years later, Tobey sets off for Dublin. He does not return to the village until he learns about the death of his father- when Tobey arrives for the funeral he discovers that Megan has already departed. The story alternates between Tobeys search for his sister, and a series of letters from Megan that document her life in London as an animal rights activist, her marriage and divorce, and her work as a veterinarian on a sparsely populated island in the Philippines.

Tobey follows in his sisters footsteps, but when he finally arrives on the island, Megan has vanished. In his effort to unravel the mystery of her disappearance, Tobey discovers a sinister purpose behind the islands dilapidated laboratories and its enigmatic inhabitants.With the horrors of a sadly beautiful and treacherously savage island world, Lappert connects the fate of two people who seek happiness and find horror.

With great subtlety he unfolds the life stories of two siblings, who escape Ireland to seek fulfillment elsewhere.--Roman Bucheli, Neue Zurcher ZeitungA book full of mystery. Lappert arrives at this novel through moods and states, through landscapes and memories. You are held captive by the atmosphere, gripped by the many interior narratives, touched by Lapperts power with words.--Martin Ebel, Tages-AnzeigerA novel that grabs the reader from the first page and does everything in its power to subtly convey his moral messages.--Rainer Moritz, Die Welt
