Publisher's Summary

Black Rock Observatory, in Tryon, North Carolina, is a privately-owned radio telescope searching for extraterrestrial life. The facility’s giant satellite dish hits pay dirt on New Year’s Eve 2024 as a graduate student, Ronald Phillips, records a strange alien message from a distant galaxy.  

A press conference ensues, and the country is informed of the discovery through national television. The recording uploads quickly on Black Rock’s website, and the alien message goes viral. Public reaction is enthusiastic, and the observatory gains publicity through news and social media outlets. 

After the recording’s release, many people become infected by a mystery illness. The disease causes tumors in the brains of its victims and noticeable changes in their personalities. Some of the stricken are interviewed by two neurosurgeons, Doctors Kevin Dyar and James Ketterly. Their research leads them to an unthinkable conclusion: The cause of the disease is connected to the observatory. 

In a race against time, the neurosurgeons desperately search for a cure to an alien plague that has originated 2.2 billion light-years from Earth.

Thoroughly Entertaining

Every now and then you come across a really good book that pulls you in and you are trapped in that world. Frequency was that story for me. It is a quick listen, but well worth the time.

free review copy

The story showed plot ideas from other alien invasions of this narrative type to give the readers better idea of how section of the novel would appear like link a group people heading somewhere to the movie "Incanter of the third kind". It was overall an ok novel to get someone in the alien genre.
