Publisher's Summary

Despite the government's best efforts to explain it away, after nearly 70 years, Roswell is a story that just won't disappear. Parents who were present during or immediately after the incident may have passed on, but their children know what happened‚ and have paid dearly for their knowledge. These are their stories. You will finally learn the truth about:

  • The daughter of a witness to an alien body who discovered that her phone had been bugged for years.
  • How the US Air Force tried to change the mind of the son of the Roswell intelligence officer in 1995.
  • What really became of the son of the principle witness, who disappeared in 1960.

These are stories worth hearing that force you to think about why the government would go to such lengths to keep these families quiet.

    "Lots of Conjecture, Little Evidence & an Unremarkable Performance"

    Better writing & organization might have made this a better book. Another book, "Witness to Roswell," covers these "testimonies" more keenly. A good editor might have stripped this book of its many redundancies & duplications. Disappointing. PERFORMANCE: The reader punctuates his droning performance by strangely emphasizing a word or phrase. His attempts at characterization, particularly of female "witnesses" is more distracting than effective.

    "Hungry for more!!!"

    This book was a blast to listen to! I loved every second of the almost 8 hours listening to the details and research done by the two authors. They paint the picture as if I were back in 47 in Roswell

    Story
    "Repetitive"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, some new material. this is just a repeated excerpts from the first book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Stated above. I might add that the narrator of the first book was much better.


    Have you listened to any of Barry Abrams’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I have heard him before


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe


    Any additional comments?

    I will return this, as it is just a repeat of some of the information from the first book and presented exactly the same. The first book was very in depth with much new material I had never heard, but this one just repeated what they wrote in that first book in limited form.
