In many respects, this is the sequel to his earlier best sellers They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers (a chronicle of the harassment faced by early UFO researchers) and The Silver Bridge (Barker's on-the-scene investigation of the Mothman events of the 1960s). Since Barker died a year after the release of MIB: Secret Terror, it was not widely distributed.
