The Autopsy of Planet Earth by R.J. Eastwood is a fast-paced, gripping sci-fi novel with a unique premise, a story that follows the adventure of an alien who may hold the key to save Earth from its slow death. Legna, an extraterrestrial, arrives on Earth with a very curious claim — his race created mankind and then abandoned humans to evolve on their own. Now disheartened at humanity’s slow self-destruction and ignorance, he’s returned to reverse the path and restore them to a way of life that knows peace and harmony. Readers are thrust into a dizzying adventure with the US Chief of Staff, Gabriel Ferro, and Dr. Catherine Blake as they are transported to a world where no human has ever been. Can the alien be for real and is there a way to correct the harm that is already done to Earth and humanity? The answers this book offers will surprise you.

This is a sci-fi story with a powerful international setting in the future, introducing readers to strange happenings and to intriguing scientific considerations. R.J. Eastwood creates an array of characters, including anthropologists, scientists, politicians, and researchers, who fit neatly into the narrative.

The Autopsy of Planet Earth will appeal to sci-fi fans who enjoy stories involving aliens and space travel. The prose is crisp and the setting breathtaking. R.J. Eastwood’s short chapters and constant shifts in story line create a powerful sense of suspense in readers and keep them turning the pages, eager to discover what comes next.
