I first read this book some 17 years ago whilst finding myself delayed at the airport in Gran Canaria. Being the only book available in English from the tiny bookstand I had little choice if I wasn't to spend the next 12 hours staring at red, plastic airport chairs, trying to move them with the power of my mind, or worse, making smalltalk with the increasingly annoyed family sitting nearby.

What a happy moment it became, or actually not as it happens, for this book has stayed with me ever since.

Nick Redfern describes, through his meetings with witnesses and others involved with the Roswell mystery, a quite plausable answer after all these years.

The story has been out there in a more simplistic form already, apparently, but it's new to me and, although shocking, is believable and answers many of the questions still hanging around the subject. We discover that men from Mars are not needed and still we get all bases covered if everything in here is true. Fascinating, if just for the new approach to a subject that has seen many books written about it yet often those books leave just as many questions unanswered as they claim to answer.

Is it the final word on… Read more
