Kevin D. Randle, a U.S. Air Force Reserve captain and an authority on alien abduction, combines his military and UFO expertise in Signals, the first book in The Exploration Chronicles -- a proposed four-book series about mankind's search for intelligent life in the universe.
When Doctor Sarah Bakker detects an alien signal transmitting 50 light-years away and headed in the direction of Earth, her discovery sets in motion a wide array of reactions. The scientific community is cautiously excited; the majority of the world's population could care less. But when an ambitious, unethical politician joins forces with an enterprising scientist and television journalist, the world's news channels are suddenly flooded with stories of invading alien fleets traveling at light speed straight toward Earth to wipe out humanity. Widespread panic ensues, people riot, and hundreds are killed -- all because of a faint, moving signal outside the solar system.
The president of the United States is forced into action and creates the Galaxy Exploration Team, whose mission is to identify whether the signal is coming from friend or foe. The team is sent into space, to the outer limits of the solar system, to await the mysterious visitor. Nothing they've prepared for can help them when they finally meet the source of the signals…
Move over, Whitley Strieber and Robert Doherty, there's a new force in the UFO/first contact subgenre -- Kevin D. Randle! Paul Goat Allen
