Publisher's Summary

After the 1908 Tunguska blast levels a Siberian forest the size of London, a Russian scientist makes an amazing discovery amongst the debris.

In 1947, 10-year-old Fay Allen of Roswell, New Mexico, witnesses the fiery crash of an extraordinary craft unlike anything she's ever seen.

More than 60 years later, former Army combat engineer Tyler Locke rescues Fay from gunmen who are after a piece of wreckage she claims is from the Roswell incident. Incredulous of her tale, Tyler believes the attack on Fay is nothing more than a burglary gone wrong. But when he finds himself locked in the back of a truck carrying a hundred tons of explosives and heading for a top secret American base, Tyler knows that he has stumbled onto the opening gambit of something more sinister than he ever imagined.

Because disgraced Russian spy Vladimir Colchev is after an Air Force prototype code-named Killswitch, an electromagnetic pulse weapon of unprecedented power. Although Tyler is able to avert catastrophe at the US facility, Colchev gets away with the bomb and plans to turn it on America itself. To complete his mission, he needs only one other key component, a mysterious object recovered from the Roswell crash.

In a desperate race against time, Tyler must unmask a conspiracy a century in the making to rescue the United States from electronic Armageddon.

Interesting Explanation for The Roswell Incident

Would you listen to The Roswell Conspiracy again? Why?

Yes, The story line is very entertaining.

What did you like best about this story?

The way the author explains what happened in Roswell New Mexico in the 1940s.

Have you listened to any of David Marantz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but he does not do a female character very well; needs work.

Great ride!

What a great roller coaster of a story! The story takes us all over the world and each place is brought to life with vivid descriptions. Some of the 20th century's greatest mysteries are woven into ancient mystery's with surprising dexterity. Dave Marantz, the narrator captures the excitement and thrills but never lets the story get away from him. Even the difficult dialects are fun to listen to. The story along with the narration made it non stop listening.

New narrator

what happened to the original series narrator who shared the author's name, Boyd? He was amazing. He really took you in to the story. This new guy is like a younger Ben Stein... monotone and dull. Plus his poor attempt at an Australian accent sounds less like an Aussie and more like a Belgian Mickey Mouse choking on a Bavarian cream pie while being attacked by the sisters from Shawshank during a prison shower scene

Enjoyable Space Age Novel

I thought this was a quick, fun listen. Strong characters and what seemed to me, to be a plausible villain. There was plenty of action, interesting takes on Area 51, and a dash of mystery to compete a rather good story.

Suspension of disbelief times 3

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If really, REALLY are a Roswell conspiracy buff ( and I tend to count myself amongst those) then this book is for you. Otherwise, I recommend you stay away.

A genuine strech at best, entertaining at times, trite at others, and something I can't in all honesty recommend. I did, however, listen to the end, and ended up caring about the story line, although the characters were sketched at best.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not more of this.

What about David Marantz’s performance did you like?

How much he struggled with Australian and New Zealand accents was entertaining to hear.

Could you see The Roswell Conspiracy being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not even the SyFy network could defend airing this.

Any additional comments?

Look, if you are into the entire aliens ( or not/! ) at Roswell thing, go for it. Boyd does bring in some of the more obtuse concepts about what really went on there, but you do have to wade through the entire story to get there, and it may not be worthwhile.

Pretty predictable

Any additional comments?

Although the author had an imaginative explaintation of the Roswell incident, the story was pretty predictable. I like the narration of Boyd Gaines much better.

Burn quality sucks. Discs break Mid Word!

What did you like best about The Roswell Conspiracy? What did you like least?

The story line is entertaining and requires no thinking.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Roswell Conspiracy?

Not sure yet, I'm not done listening to it. I had to re-burn part 2 as iTunes burn software screwed up.Instead of burning part 2 it burned part 1 again
