There is a deep tone of honesty and directness in this book, akin to that of Jenny Randles, and the evidence is presented directly, often in direct quotations from eyewitnesses. There is some reliance on hypnotically extracted accounts of abductions (never to be trusted too closely), but not enough to dissuade us from seeing that something is going on. The question is still: "What is it?" The authors leap well beyond the evidence they've offered in trying to answer this, with the tired and culturally-conditioned answered "Pleiadeans" and "genetic manipulation" and "weapons technology" answers.
There are surely deeper answers, perhaps even deeper than human comprehension, and the Imbrogno/Horrigan answers often border on the silly.
Do intense electrical fields open interdimensional doors? If so, then stars and black holes must be utterly bewildering confusions of dimensional interleaving. Has American weaponry put ET's technology to use? If so, how come we still go to war with battleships and bombers instead of "appearing", irradiating, and vanishing?
The authors admit to being believers. I believe, too, that thousands of highly credible witnesses cannot be lying, and I believe they have seen something non-human. But Imbrogno/Horrigan have not presented the detailed additional evidence that would permit the rather more outrageous elements that percolate through their conclusions.
By the way, they confess to being materially delayed in researching the Belgian Air Force sightings because they were documented (gasp!) in French. Good researchers should have several tools available, including a few foreign languages or at least a friend or two who can handle Europe's second-most-common language and North America's third-most-common. This complaint was out of place in a book claiming to do intelligent research. Get with it, folks!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Disappointing Effort From an Author Who Has Done Better 17 Sep 2002
By Trent Rollow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Imbrogno and Horrigan spend more time in this book covering wild goose chases in upstate New York caves and government efforts to muddy the UFO waters than they do actually exposing CIA skullduggery. The early chapters cover a in interesting if not unique take on the connection between UFOs and paranormal or occultic phenomena: certain stone structures reminiscent of Druids or Celts seem to be at the epicenters of UFO sightings and "high strangeness" encounters with the paranormal. The claim is made,that an interdimensional "fault line" exists between a number of these structures. Sadly, no maps, dates, physiacal readings or density distributions are offered to support this claim as the book descends into the usual whining about government cover-ups and conspiracies with an alien intelligence. After years of mostly anecdotal claims of an alien-occultic connection, some real data showing a connection between certain geographical locations, physical anamolies, and UFO/paranormal activity would have been welcomed by many lay readers. The fact that Imbrogno has some scientific training in his education makes this omission all the more painful. The pie charts and graphs in the back are more or less a rehash of several works and authors, and probably would get a junior high report a passing grade, but remember that this author did a good, solid job on his "Night Siege" work in the late eighties. I found this work to be well below the standard set back then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Presents often overlooked theory of UFO origin 22 May 2012
By mahagga73 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Book does a good job of piecing together fascinating stories from many reliable sources on UFO abduction and the different kinds of aliens that recur ,in several forms,in their stories.I have read plenty of government coverup books,but the theories of UFO's crossing dimensions to get here,and the theories regarding magnetic fields they are attracted to ,and the times of the seasons they are linked to appear often in ,are all new to me.Theories regarding government warring and deals with these alien forces are interesting reading ,even as far fetched as they may sound.The parts of the books that link ancient peoples like the Celts with alien UFO's are very interesting reading.All in all,there was a lot of information to take in,and a lot of different theories from the normal blah of regular UFO sightings , like abduction theories and experimentation,that the authors go in depth with.It made for very interesting,and downright horrifying reading.You might want to keep the lights on when you get to some of the abduction parts,lol.This is a book for the diehard UFO enthusiast that may introduce some new concepts and theories to many.Worth reading for those of us who are convinced we are not,nor have ever been alone.
5.0 out of 5 stars I dig Phil 29 Dec 2013
By B. McGuinness - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good book, because Phil is a field guy, lots of leg work. He's been helpful to me since 1989 when I was given his number after I had a little visit by a 75 foot floating carnival which went over my head at spitting distance and slow. Recently when I contacted a writing partner of Phil's for his contact info, the person disavowed Phil, there is some castigation happening for a resume. You oughta see my resume. I was once Superman. But I worked my backside off on the mission I had, and Phil has always been accurate, careful and smart. Well, maybe he messed up filling out a form when he was younger. Big whiff. If you live in CT or NY, buy his book "Night Siege: The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings". Without Phil, the whole huge long event would be a whimsical page 12 story in The Times. Write me, Phil.
