The perfect read—peppered with good humor and retro references—to match today's abundance of paranoia and conspiracy theories

The paranoia and conspiracy theories continue! Beleaguered reporter Matt Sinkage’s quest to discover the truth behind an apparently government-backed alien invasion of earth leads him to investigate a quasi-religious UFO cult based in an idyllic small American community. Then the sudden death of a prominent politician paves the way for Senator Harrison Callahan to seek the Presidency of the United States. But Sinkage, believing that Callahan is an alien pawn, is determined to stop him at all costs.
