A new collection in the Silent Invasion saga of a deeply paranoid and fearful America  

Several years after his fateful final encounter with would-be presidential assassin Matt Sinkage, private detective Phil Housley finds himself reluctantly protecting a paranoid lawyer from alien abductions, sinister government agents, and mad scientists. At the same time Housley is battling demons from his past that threaten to unravel his own fragile sanity.


"This reissue of a cult classic sci-fi mystery that touches upon deep state conspiracies and fake news remains incredibly relevant." -School Library Journal "Riveting to the last page and highly recommended!" -Midwest Book Review "Like the greatest episodes of "The Twilight Zone," "The Silent Invasion" mashes together the earthbound fears of a particular time with a threat from the outside to make an argument about the world around us." - William Kulesa, Journal
