A riveting work of fiction, the story centers around an archaeologist named Tiffany Gerardo and her lab assistant Brian Brady who find themselves entangled in a deadly chain of events that could mean the very end for the human race. Guided by Hopi prophecy and putting ancient clues together, the race is on to save our modern world. The story is exciting and the characters are moving at a fast pace, from the peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the mesas of the Southwest.

Nick Redfern has cranked out yet another fascinating, thought-provoking UFO book, this one focusing on the legendary “Men In Black” phenomenon. For beginner or new comer alike, Nick always has a knack for presenting the most interesting and entertaining stories, and yet maintains his credibility and an objective position with everything.

In this book, he presents the Albert Bender story, where ufology’s legendary MIB first came to light. He naturally must include Point Pleasant, West Virginia, where all sorts of dark and mysterious MIB and other high-strangeness events transpired. Yet he also takes us to the shores of Loch Ness to detail MIB encounters there, as unlikely as that might sound, and many other places here and there and in between. He also interviews leading researchers of MIB occurrences. I actually had no idea that my old friend and former correspondent Al Greenfield had had his own MIB-type episode!
