Publisher's Summary

Thirty years ago, in a facility buried beneath a vast Wyoming emptiness, an experiment gone awry accidentally opened a door. It is the world’s best-kept secret—and its most terrifying. Trying to regain his life in the Alaskan wilds, ex-con/ex-cop Travis Chase stumbles upon an impossible scene: a crashed 747 passenger jet filled with the murdered dead, including the wife of the [resident of the United States.

Though a nightmare of monumental proportions, it pales before the terror to come, as Chase is dragged into a battle for the future that revolves around an amazing artifact. Allied with a beautiful covert operative whose life he saved, Chase must now play the role he’s been destined for—a pawn of incomprehensible forces or humankind’s final hope—as the race toward Apocalypse begins in earnest. Because something is loose in the world. And doomsday is not only possible...it is inevitable.

Wow!! How have I never heard of this author or series!?

Where to start!? First off this is the first book in a series which Audible doesn't tell you and the ending would leave you upset if you didn't know this. The 1st book is The Breach, 2nd is Dark Country and the 3rd is Deep Sky. This book was amazing, I save my 5 stars for the truly awesome books and this was one! It was in the same genre as a Peter Clines book like "Apt 14" or "The Fold." Awesome Sci-Fi aspects but never going to far out there, anytime I felt there was a cheap solution or way out of an issue it comes back to be a great twist! The characters are great, a ex dirty cop who isn't some Dudley do right which I can't stand and a strong (stronger) female partner!! The suspense and thrills just keep coming and coming. I am so happy I found this book in my suggested books section, after reading a few reviews I was sold!

B minus: story line with time jumps to be a better person!

Primary character is a felon murderer just released and rescuer of world & alien connection. Story line has time jumps to keep you engaged with a potentially plausible story

I couldn't listen to another minute. I tried hard, but men donning invisibility suits was just too much for me to bear.
