Publisher's Summary

Find the missing. Fear the found.

Three months have passed since the aliens' arrival, but little has changed in the skies. Motherships still hover, impervious to attack and communication. Spherical shuttles ferry about with unclear intentions. But the abductions of select humans have ended, and most of those taken have been returned - dazed, incoherent, and prophesying glory or doom, but home where they belong.

Still, nine seemingly unconnected people remain missing.

Trapped in their besieged bunker outside Vail, Piper, Trevor, Lila, and Heather wait for one.

All of this has happened before....

For his entire life, Benjamin Bannister has sought the connections uniting the planet's ancient wonders. And for years he's pursued evidence that extraterrestrial life isn't new to Earth. For years he was dismissed as a fool. Now the spheres have arrived, and Benjamin has found vindication...along with troubling theories. His research facility rests on a paranormal hotspot in Moab, Utah - but Vail, Colorado is where his interests lie. He's sent an emissary to Meyer Dempsey's ranch to find out what makes the Missing Nine so special to the planet's invaders. What news will those nine bring when they return? And what, as the motherships again move like pieces finding positions on a chessboard, will happen next?

And...it will all happen again.

Vail and Moab, Moab and Vail - two epicenters in the cold alien war. The locations' fates seem somehow intertwined as Earth's clock ticks toward midnight. The roads and communications have been closed, but now it seems that the planet's future might depend on a journey from one to the other, no matter the cost. Humanity must find the value of those who have been taken...or become mere fossil evidence for future archaeologists to puzzle over.

    "Wait....what just happened???"

    While the first book laid a lot of ground work on personalities and could be slow going, Contact picks up speed with an effortless touch of twists to make you want just 5 five more minutes of story time -- no matter how late it is! The right balance of surprise, but not over the top unbelievable. A really enjoyable story. And if you're not listening to Ray Porter read it to you, you are really missing out!!

    "Better and better"
    Where does Contact rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love this narrator! He does women's voices wonderfully and has so many ranges for the men's voices it makes it fun to listen to. Book 2 definitely leave you hanging. I can't wait to read number three.

    "Smash Hit"

    Wonderful second audio book. Humans manipulated while others hide. What do the Aliens want? Telepathy real or false? What is next?
    Narration is key to keeping the story going at jet sped. A must book.

    As a volunteer librarian, I have a reverence for books, from C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity or R.A. Salvatores stories of Drizzt D'Urden.

    "good story despite reviews to the contrary"

    I normally put a lot of stock in reviews and striclty based on reviews I probably would not of listened to this book. However I was thinking about it and realised I can't base everything on other people's experience. Especially something like literature. So, against my reviews-sence, I decided to go along with the book and I enjoyed it. The layout -or unfolding- of the story does have a different flow from the first book. One person commented that the story itself didn't go forward and I partially agree.

    "very interesting but needs better character devel"
    If you could sum up Contact in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting but female characters are somewhat one dimensional and moronic.
    Piper in particular is too stupid to be given oxygen if there is ever a shortage.

    "Can't wait for more"

    A lot of middle books in three part series suffer from a lack of story to tell, or fall into setting up the finally and don't stand well on their own, This is NOT the case! This continued the story with the family, adding characters here and there who help push the plot. There was also a larger mystical, unexplained element to the story which adds another level of intrigue and suspense.

    "Loved it! This should be a movie!"

    I rarely say that! I couldn't stop listening. The only drawback - it's too short

    "Boring"

    A whole lotta not moving the story forward. Listened for about an hour or so, and that was with a lot of skipping ahead. Don't miss a thing by doing this which tells you something.

    "Meh...nothing really happens in this book. "

    nothing important really happened in this book. I was looking forward to the second book in the series but this was 9.5 hours of meh... Ray Porter is top notch as usual and can make a tax law book sound interesting.

    "Loved it"

    Love the story and the narrator was fantastic! He does a great job with the voices for different characters so it's easy to know who is talking and when. Highly recommended for both story and narration.

    "Quite entertaining"

    Narrator is great in my opinion. Story quite good and keeping you interested, although sometimes I had that feeling, that the story slows down. Kind of like in TV dramas when presumably creators have to slow the pace to not reveal too much in just one episode. Apart from that, pretty good and I enjoyed it very much.
