After the 1908 Tunguska blast levels a Siberian forest the size of London, a Russian scientist makes an amazing discovery amongst the debris.In 1947, 10-year-old Fay Allen of Roswell, New Mexico, witnesses the fiery crash of an extraordinary craft unlike anything she's ever seen.
More than 60 years later, former Army combat engineer Tyler Locke rescues Fay from gunmen who are after a piece of wreckage she claims is from the Roswell incident. Incredulous of her tale, Tyler believes the attack on Fay is nothing more than a burglary gone wrong. But when he finds himself locked in the back of a truck carrying a hundred tons of explosives and heading for a top secret American base, Tyler knows that he has stumbled onto the opening gambit of something more sinister than he ever imagined.
Because disgraced Russian spy Vladimir Colchev is after an Air Force prototype code-named Killswitch, an electromagnetic pulse weapon of unprecedented power. Although Tyler is able to avert catastrophe at the US facility, Colchev gets away with the bomb and plans to turn it on America itself. To complete his mission, he needs only one other key component, a mysterious object recovered from the Roswell crash.
In a desperate race against time, Tyler must unmask a conspiracy a century in the making to rescue the United States from electronic Armageddon.

Serving God For His Glory!
Yes, The story line is very entertaining.
The way the author explains what happened in Roswell New Mexico in the 1940s.
No, but he does not do a female character very well; needs work.
If really, REALLY are a Roswell conspiracy buff ( and I tend to count myself amongst those) then this book is for you. Otherwise, I recommend you stay away.
A genuine strech at best, entertaining at times, trite at others, and something I can't in all honesty recommend. I did, however, listen to the end, and ended up caring about the story line, although the characters were sketched at best.
Not more of this.
How much he struggled with Australian and New Zealand accents was entertaining to hear.
Not even the SyFy network could defend airing this.
Look, if you are into the entire aliens ( or not/! ) at Roswell thing, go for it. Boyd does bring in some of the more obtuse concepts about what really went on there, but you do have to wade through the entire story to get there, and it may not be worthwhile.
Science, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Military History, Thrillers, Great Courses, Horror, and anything with a good story. Please forgive errors.
I thought this was a quick, fun listen. Strong characters and what seemed to me, to be a plausible villain. There was plenty of action, interesting takes on Area 51, and a dash of mystery to compete a rather good story.
Although the author had an imaginative explaintation of the Roswell incident, the story was pretty predictable. I like the narration of Boyd Gaines much better.
The story line is entertaining and requires no thinking.
Not sure yet, I'm not done listening to it. I had to re-burn part 2 as iTunes burn software screwed up.Instead of burning part 2 it burned part 1 again
