Dylan is a gifted student, but he's out of cash, out of soap, and near eviction. The owner of a chateau hires him for a biological survey. Dylan's ADHD brain, the presence of slime molds and one dead body lead to unexpected conclusions. Can he survive predators when he can't even find his wallet?
Fans of Merlin Sheldrake's "Entangled Life" (nonfiction on fungi) and Andy Weir's "Hail Mary" will enjoy the hard science aspects of this modern day adventure.
