As Michael Gaffikin’s help with the post-mortem reveals a pattern of teeth that are only partly human, other strange happenings take place on the island. A farmer reports that one of his sheep has been “torn apart,” while a Geiger counter at a Coast Guard building goes off momentarily. A member of the Coast Guard visiting the island has gone out of radio contact as well, prompting Inskip to conduct a search. But before Inskip and his entourage find the mutilated body of the missing Coast Guard man, they find some sort of vehicle washed ashore, unlike anything he’s seen before.
