Overview

For fans of Dan Brown and Clive Cussler, THE ROSWELL CONSPIRACY is a "masterful thriller" (James Rollins) "full of smart, intense action" (Patrick Lee).

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
After the 1908 Tunguska blast levels a Siberian forest the size of London, a Russian scientist makes an amazing discovery amongst the debris.

In 1947, ten-year-old Fay Allen of Roswell, New Mexico, witnesses the fiery crash of an extraordinary craft unlike anything she's ever seen.

More than sixty years later, former Army combat engineer Tyler Locke rescues Fay from gunmen who are after a piece of wreckage she claims is from the Roswell incident. Incredulous of her tale, Tyler believes the attack on Fay is nothing more than a burglary gone wrong. But when he finds himself locked in the back of a truck carrying a hundred tons of explosives and heading for a top secret American base, Tyler knows that he has stumbled onto the opening gambit of something more sinister than he ever imagined.

Because disgraced Russian spy Vladimir Colchev is after an Air Force prototype code-named Killswitch, an electromagnetic pulse weapon of unprecedented power. Although Tyler is able to avert catastrophe at the US facility, Colchev gets away with the bomb and plans to turn it on America itself. To complete his mission, he needs only one other key component, a mysterious object recovered from the Roswell crash.

In a desperate race against time, Tyler must unmask a conspiracy a century in the making to rescue the United States from electronic Armageddon.

*** Tyler Locke's first two adventures are also available!
Book 1: THE ARK ("Mach-speed mayhem" -- Steve Berry)
Book 2: THE VAULT ("An electrifying blend of history, myth, and science" -- Publishers Weekly starred review)

REVIEWS:
"I've been a fan of Boyd Morrison since before he was published. In The Roswell Conspiracy, he shows his talent has not stopped growing. Here is a masterful thriller wrought with historical weight, technological prowess, and gut-twisting action, with an ending that left me breathless."
—James Rollins, NY Times bestselling author of The Devil Colony

"Sky-high stakes and relentless pacing from beginning to end. A thrill ride full of smart, intense action."
—Patrick Lee, NY Times bestselling author of Deep Sky

"Figuring out where fact ends and fiction begins is nearly impossible with Boyd Morrison's books. The Roswell Conspiracy is a fast paced thrill-ride with enough layers to give the book depth way beyond the frighteningly realistic plot. A perfect blend of historical fact and modern day threats that will keep you guessing late into the night."
—Brad Taylor, NY Times bestselling author of All Necessary Force

"Boyd Morrison has done it again! Relentless pace, intricate plotting, and an ending that ratchets up the tension to dizzying heights and keeps it there—seemingly forever. What more could anyone want?"
—Douglas Richards, NY Times bestselling author of Amped

    I think this author tried too hard to make this story into some type of thriller. It was too drawn out, too many events. The end was very dissappointing, after all the mystery sourounding the event in Roswell, that it could all be explained to a human expierment gone wrong. It had to go through 900 some pages to get to that point. The story drew me in, from the beginning, but after 700 pages I lost interest. The main characters were fliting around the globe trying to solve a mystery that wasn't that complicated.

    This book was suggested to me by my Nook. For $3.95 I thought what the heck, but didn't expect much. Turns out I couldn't put it down and I am now looking forward to reading Boyd's other novels.

    A well written mystery story.

    Morrison's fiction is detailed, complicated and fairly interesting, but sheds no light whatsoever on the "conspiracy" which hovers over Roswell.

    a page turner

    This author has obviously researched extensively. The story line, with the afore said research, and planning made a well executed plot. The story moved quickly, and it was difficult to second guess his line of thought. Well done Mr Morrison!!

    Easy read

    This book reminded me of Clive Cussler's books. Similar in genre with action, globe hopping, and a little romantic interest. This book was not anything spectacular to me but it was an easy read and was enjoyable.

    Easily one of my most anticipated books of the year.  Release number three in the Tyler Locke series, this may be the best book yet.  The story opens with Dr. Tyler Locke and Grant Westfield visiting New Zealand’s Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds to put a new top secret hybrid test car through a series of cold weather tests.  But while in New Zealand, Dr. Locke takes a side trip to visit a seventy-five year old woman claiming to have a piece of wreckage from infamous Roswell crash.  Tyler’s firm, Gordian Engineering is the foremost airline crash investigation specialist in the United States.  This makes Tyler the most logical consultant to help identify the wreckage the old woman has held in secret since 1947.

    Right out of the gate, the book launches into a rocket propelled thrill-ride as Tyler struggles to uncover the secrets of the Roswell crash.  But even the mysteries of crashed alien spacecraft are not enough for a storyteller like Mr. Morrison.  Complications quickly arise as secrets long buried by the Russians start coming to light and drawing attention to a rouge SVR agent who attempts to steal the Roswell artifacts.  This draws a tangled web of international intrigue that grows to involve the FBI as well as the NSA, international drug-runners and arms dealers.

    While the books title might lead readers to believe that the plot is filled with crazy UFO theories from the lunatic fringe, this is absolutely not the case.  Mr. Morrison crafts a plot that is very plausible and well grounded in modern science and reality.  Consider the mystery that is Roswell, add to that the endless unanswered questions pertaining to Tunguska, Easter Isle, and the infamous Nazca Lines.  Add a whole lot of international intrigue, a boatload of suspense and endless action and you have a thriller titled The Roswell Conspiracy.

    Good background moves the plot along, How the heros get out of tight spots is not realistic!

    Readable but predictable

    A little too much on the " shoot um up, blow um up" action scenes and "just missed getting killed escapes" which kind of took away from the science, technology versus alien creation theme which was the hook for me. It reminded me of the "action hero movies" that get caught up in the car chases and what not and kind of take you away from the actual story line but I guess that's the point! There was enough in it to make me want to finish it so it was a good for a quick summer read.
