First Evidence by Ken Goddard read by Kevin Kenerly
At the same time as he carries out his investigation, he is also re-united with 3 of his closest friends from high school, though this doesn't turn out as planned.
One thing that struck me as odd in the writing, was the way the every time the author referred to Colin's firearm, he called it by its full name of Sig Sauer. Not once did he refer to it as his firearm, or weapon, or Sig, but always Sig Sauer. It seemed a bit formal, not that it took anything away from the story, though I was glad that he didn't carry a Winchester Repeating Rifle. Whew, that would be a mouthful. Sticking with the guns. I found that the descriptions of their usage and safety procedures were accurate and appropriately presented. I am currently learning about the safe use of firearms and what I am learning was reflected in this book.
This is one of those stories where you can embrace the alien aspect, or you can stay in denial and struggle to come up with an acceptable cover story. For those who don't like the space ship kind of science fiction, they should find this an enjoyable book. I'm still wondering what kind of report Colin Cellars could have filed at the conclusion of his unusual investigation.
I listened to the unabridged audio version from Blackstone Audio. It was convincingly read by Kevin Kenerly. 12 hours 17 mins.
