Overview

This action-packed novel is a cross between Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Sleepless in Seattle.

Are little green men observing us? And if they are, out of all of the planets in the universe why us? Meet Henry O'Malley, burned out CIA field agent with two years until early retirement. He takes an assignment in New Mexico he hopes will keep him alive and out of the limelight until retirement and unwittingly walks into a three-ring circus. He has just become the agent in charge of ETRAND—Extraterrestrial Research and Development. He heads an unlikely group of heroes: a computer whiz, language expert, anthropologist, mathematician, engineer, security man, and physician. As he settles into his job, the unthinkable happens.

The atmosphere heated up the outside of the ship significantly. The computer adjusted the cooling system to compensate. At about 20,000 feet the winds started slamming against the craft. The computer was unable to compensate for the irregular variations in the wind speed. It had never encountered winds of this magnitude before. Then the snow started. This was also an unknown to the computer. It iced the delicate mapping sensors and cameras that typically guided the ship through rough terrain. The computer was flying blind. At 10,000 feet the ship skimmed the side of a mountain ripping the exterior door from the fuselage. The ship continued its downward path and collided with the side of another mountain. The ship slid down the slope of the mountain digging a deep trench in the snow and knocking over the small evergreens in its path. It came to a sudden halt as it slammed against a large grove of Ponderosa pines. Snow fell from the trees and covered the large craft. The computer shut off the collision alarm and the ship was silent. Then the computer began issuing a distress signal in accordance with its crash protocol.

    O'Malley and Sarah

    Exciting relationships and events occurring during the landing of three spaceships. NM terrain and city depicted very well! It was a book that was hard to put down once started. Sarah is more than an alien and O'Malley has a life background that goes soft with this character. I plan to reread this over again. I may have missed something.
