Sep 14, 2016 Marty rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
This book was a disappointment. Published in 1999, it was themed to be “in” with all the fuss over the millennium and Y2K. It also was a bit more gruesome that the other two books of this series I have read. Basically it revolves around the idea that there was a UFO landing at Roswell, NM, that the government was keeping secret. There at the super-secret Area 51 in the desert, a group of people got involved in the idea that there were extra-terrestrials among us. This group, called Prometheus wa ...more

Not my cup of tea.
Covers are cool, strange story.
Cozy character development with gruesome crimes.
Don't recommend.

Thoroughly engaging, my favorite Angie Amalfi mystery so far. Not that I don't like others, mind. This time, Joanne Pence has outdone herself. An absolute page-turner, I simply could not put the book down. Angie, our sassy amateur sleuth, has managed to get herself right in the thick of UFOs, alien abductions and mutilation murders. UFO fanatics are rampant due to Y2K, and our Angie, with her new business, got involved with one of the groups and grotesque murders. Probably most intriguing of all ...more

This was not my favorite book in the series. There was way too much ufology in it for my taste (me being a skeptic like Paavo and Angie) and it just seemed kind of weird. I did enjoy getting to hang out with all the characters again.
This is the 2nd book in this series that I've read and they're ok. I did like the alien twist in the story line since a lot of things in the plot were not believeable anyway but overall fun and easy reading!
So I started reading it and realized I had read this before - oh well, it was the right amount of entertainment that I was looking for. I like that the series is set in San Francisco.

Another good entry in the Angie Amalfi mystery series.

Strange sci-fi theme, but still a good mystery.
