When Bill Regal, private detective and Vietnam vet, is hired by Ellen Goodwin to break into a top-secret Army base he thought she was a little crazy. Her request to also to find evidence that the government is hiding proof of the existence of aliens on Earth, just confirmed she was crazy. However, the offer was a quarter of a million dollars, and as far as he was concerned, sanity is overrated when compared to that amount of money.

Ellen hires two more people for the task, Tim Morrison and Charlie Ruffin, and the four set up their operation in a farmhouse near the Army base Fort Custer, Wyoming to start their search. Masquerading as a team of fossil hunters, they dodge the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) trying to get the job done. The FBI agent Steve Jenkins is busy getting evidence the group is trying to break into the base and Ellen is dating Master Sergeant Donald Sutherland, part of base security, attempting to get information from him about the security of the base.

Read John Harpster's debut book and first book of the Dancing with the Universe series, Doing the E.T. Tango, to find out if Ellen, Bill, Tim and Charlie can outwit the Army and FBI in their search for proof of aliens on Earth.

About the Author

John M. Harpster was born in Ft. Worth, Texas and raised in Arlington. After several years of odd jobs, he went back to college and got his bachelor's degree in Computer Science from California State University in Northridge, CA. His first job after college was in Fort Worth, Texas at General Dynamics. He met and started dating Tamara Stensland, also a software engineer at General Dynamics, and they were married in Dallas, Texas. They currently live in Lakeside, California with their son John and their cat Kayla. Because he was born over the Thanksgiving holiday, he claims everyone in the USA celebrates his birthday.
