The aliens were a protected species, but Riordan wanted one for his trophy case...

Humanity had ventured forth to settle the stars, and found that not all the neighbors were welcoming. That was of little concern to those who remained on Earth – until the leader of a distant human colony decided to form an alliance with aliens, with Earth at the top of their gift list...

A stranded alien spends his life masquerading as a human, hoping to contact his own world. He succeeds, but the result is a bigger problem than before...
