Publisher's Summary

A young wife disappears in the night, never to be seen again. There is no evidence of kidnapping - in fact, everything indicates that she left on purpose. Her husband, a brilliant police detective, cannot believe this - but he also can't find her.

Flynn Carroll’s lost love becomes his obsession. He begins amassing a file of similar cases nationwide. His conclusion is unavoidable: somebody is taking people and making it look like they walked out on their own. As Flynn’s case files grow, his work comes to the attention of Special Agent Diana Glass, a member of the most secret police unit on the planet. This police force seeks the most brilliant and lethal criminals who have ever walked free - thieves and murderers from another world.

Without fully understanding what Glass and her team are doing, Flynn steps into a hidden world of extraordinary challenge and lethal danger. The job is the most difficult police assignment ever known to man, but the idea is the same - find the bad guys. Stop them.

What the Critics Say

"Even those who usually stay away from alien fantasy will be drawn to this reality-based novel. The characters are complex and surprising at various points in the novel.... [Strieber's] excellent storytelling will keep readers guessing until the very end." (RT Book Reviews)

    Story
    "Good performance, bad book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who doesn't mind the main character essentially changing their personality mid-book. People who don't mind characters escaping impossible situations with no explanation.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Music


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Yes, all three of those. Did you read the book as well, mysterious questioner?


    Any additional comments?

    Did the author go back and actually read the whole book? It seems like they wrote the first third (which was really good), then came back and wrote the second third a few years later without having read the old chapters, then took another break and finished the book in a weekend under some massive deadline.

    Story
    "Where's my tinfoil hat?"

    This was a very good idea for a novel, but it didn't live up to it's potential... It meandered and never really got any traction... Yeah, I know a novel about abductions, but I didn't expect it to be so unbelievably bland, and more than a bit silly in its wanderings...

    "Don't waste time or credit"
    What disappointed you about Alien Hunter?

    The story starts bad and goes downhill from there.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Whitley Strieber again?

    Not his fiction


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christian Rummel?

    I think Rummel did the best with what he had to work with. He is a great narrator.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    OK, lets get this out of the way, Strieber's claim to fame is he was abducted by aliens. His book " Contact" was made into a major motion picture yada ,yada, yada. With that being said, I have listened to his weird radio show (which is similar to Coast to Coast) and thought that he was intelligent, entertaining and had interesting guests, so I took a chance on this book. Writing fiction is not easy, Lord knows I have tried, but I would not wish this book upon my worst enemy.
