A story of love, obsession and UFOlogy - a great read
on 11 November 2014
When Richard falls in love with Marie, he thinks he has everything he could ever want. Life is just perfect except for one small thing………. Marie’s obsession with aliens and the absolute unshakeable belief that they will make contact with the group she belongs to. Richard, a complete unbeliever, pushes her fixation to the back of his mind, and they agree to differ - until that is, the day Marie disappears………. Determined that she would never leave him willingly, Richard sets about trying to find her. As he digs deeper into Marie’s life and meets her friends, he finds himself dragged into brainwashed cult members and the money orientated manipulators who control them, he wonders if he will ever find her in time……….
I liked Richard from page one, an ordinary unassuming newspaper photographer, but tenacious to the end. At times I wanted to shake Marie but the more her past is explained to us as the story unfolds, it becomes easy to see how she could be dragged into the alien cult life.
The end is incredibly surprising – I never saw that coming :)
Don’t be fooled by thinking this is a book all about flying saucers and little green men. No !!, this is a story of love, obsession and the scary reality of how cults can happen. A really great read, you won’t be disappointed.
