Overview

Groom Lake... Dreamland... The Skunk Works. Paradise Ranch... Watertown... Pittman Station.
All names that refer to Area 51 - the secret and foreboding government installation that everyone, if they know anything about it at all, fears. Except Dr. Ross Gardner. A scientist at Area 51, he's trying to reverse-engineer the technology of the saucer that crashed at Roswell in 1947. It's the best job in the world, sure, but to him, Area 51 is just the office, his second favorite place in the world - after wherever his beautiful, devoted wife, Danse is.

...Until Dr. Gardner discovers the meaning of the strange sigils found in the saucer. That will set into motion a chain of events that will upset every facet of his well-ordered life. Then he'll know why people fear Area 51.
