The Most interesting take on UFO's in twenty years.

History, physics and genetics come together to create a believable, frightening story explaining why aliens came to Earth and how they engineered the most terrifying pandemic in human history. You already know about it. It is going to get worse. There is no cure.

In the tradition of Michener and Uris, historical events and real people blend into a fastpaced, compelling thriller that keeps you reading and leaves you wondering how much is actually

I initially grabbed this book as a potential conspiracy theory tome that would list out some research and verifiable events, them draw some conclusions befitting it's title. It's not that kind of book. It is however a book in the ilk of Michael Chriton where facts and historical events have been woven into a believable storyline, and that I believe is the secret to enjoying the read, suspension of disbelief until the story itself grabs you. A short but entertaining (and informative?) read.

Interesting read

Supposedly this is fiction, but it doesn't read that way. Probably because the parts on Forrestal are basically true. Forestall and Kennedy were good friends going all the way back to Kennedy's senator days. Kennedy found out something that he was going to tell the people, he almost made it.

Another Immigration Problem
By Bob Gelms

Alien Agenda, Why They Came, Why They Stayed by Steve Peek is not a big book lengthwise but it is about some very big subjects. Have aliens visited us? Are they here now? What do they want? This novel answers these questions but, as Mr. Peek has said, “There are some people who bought it and are upset because all of the facts are not to their liking. This is understandable. When it comes to UFOs and aliens, everyone's 'facts' are not always the same.”

Book Info: Genre: Sci-fi thriller/conspiracy theories relating to modern society
Reading Level: Adult
Recommended for: Those interested in conspiracy theories regarding UFOs, alien abductions, and modern proliferation of autism
Trigger Warnings: conspiracy, kidnapping

My Thoughts: This is a really crazy book. Is it real or is it fiction? The author declares, “It is fiction!” but so many real events and factual experiences are included in this, that's it's difficult to be certain. I was editing the v

Overall rating: 2.5 stars

Synopsis: The 'Roswell Incident' was real. Aliens and humans have 'interacted' since 1947, and it hasn't all turned out for the best. The book is written from the perspective of a 'rogue' former government intelligence worker, who relates supposedly classified government information detailing alien-human interactions since 1947 up to the present.

My impressions/review: I found the 'back-and-forth' between past events and present-day too jarring and poorly done. Also, at l

Its not fiction

I bought this book because I often read and watch TV shows about aliens and the abductions they have so brazenly committed all over the world. I am not insane. I am however an abducted victim. I know that this book is based upon a great deal of fact, not all of it is accurate as to my experiences, but I am sure others have had different experiences than I did. It is not a work of fiction. I read the book in one sitting then read it twice through again, I have never done that in my

I loved this book... There was so much in there that I hadn't read about previously....very thought provoking...

This is a very plausible tale/theory written as fiction with a dark and disturbing river of truth running through it.
I have read many books about ufo/aliens and whilst reading this one I felt an overwhelming need to try and contact the author with so many questions!
If you are tired of reading so many rewrites of Roswell or Area51, I suggest you give this gem a read...You won't regret i

Quite gripping! A substantive excursion into a fully different subset of otherworldly possibilities. The book refreshingly reads from a non-technical point of view that reveals it's implied alien threats and or coercion rather blatantly and dramatically to its reader!

I'll give the author credit for coming up with a novel story. I really liked the premise of 40's technology shooting down a alien craft visiting earth from another dimension. The government compartmentalization was realistic as well. I did not really care for reading the entire book formatted using double spacing or the grammatical errors.

The story of aliens, government and cover up. Will I believe this is purely fiction, it is good writing to explain aliens visit to earth and modern history. A small number of people believe Roswell is real, aliens did visit. This read ties it all together. I recommend reading do to all the Roswell hype.

Holy cow is this book excellent! Exciting suspenseful story so well written; you don't have to be a fan of UFO or Roswell yarns to enjoy this book; this author's writing is so good, he's light years beyond the yarn category! Looking forward to more from Mr. Peek.

A good read.

This book may be fiction but it mentioned a few things that are not fictitious. A few of the links mentioned are worth looking up. I bought this book on a whim and I am glad I did. I enjoyed it and I recommend it.

good. well-written, innovative use of the rumors and facts. some of the politics, patriotism, etc. are awful, but they are mercifully rare. it's a good narrative synthesis of one interpretation of the facts. or... is this the truth? good. good.

Very interesting and enjoyable read on what could have possibly happened at Area 51, and how it has influenced the past 60 years. The author puts forward some incredible theories that I found fascinating. Recommend this to any sci-fi/conspiracy/x-files fan out there.

“By the time Eisenhower gave his famous Military-Industrial Complex speech, we knew alien experiments on sleeping victims were increasing annually.  Six months before Kennedy was assassinated, we knew the alien goal was to genetically alter the human race for their own purposes and that one of the side effects would be to increase the number of people born with autism by five hundred to a thousand times.” 1 likes
