On July 4, 1947, the tiny military hamlet of Roswell, New Mexico was thrust into both history and folklore as being the first city in the United States to claim that it captured an alien "flying saucer". Five days later, the Army declared the event over, and that what was found was nothing more than a downed weather balloon. Then, in the early 1970s, the investigation was looked into. There were stories of a crashed alien spacecraft with bodies. These objects were said to have been taken to a base in Ohio. Then, the story changed - not one but two foreign objects crashed outside the desert of Roswell. They were wrong. There were, in fact, three vessels! Special Agent Robert Halstead of the FBI's Special Investigation Unit made contact with Jason Greer, a pulp fiction writer, and legend. Mr. Greer informed Agent Halstead about the third and unknown UFO from the famous Roswell crash and invited him along for an out-of-this-world adventure. They came in contact with UFO activist Susan Flagg, who dedicated her life to solving the conspiracy behind the Roswell incident. When asked to investigate a new and different side to the legend, she was, at first, skeptical. Following incredible leads, being chased by mysterious men in black, cattle mutilations, and people who do not have to answer to the law, Halstead, Greer, and Flagg experience an investigation of the bizarre. Aliens most violent and marooned seek to escape this primitive planet filled with tribal warfare and sickness. Government stooges who will do anything to keep the aliens from leaving. When these worlds collide, the story becomes epic! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matt Weight. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/074725/bk_acx0_074725_sample.mp3.

The Grub-and-Stakers Quilt a Bee

Before Lobelia Falls can have a museum, the curator's killer must be caught. The Grub-and-Stakers gardening club has traditionally limited its activities to serving tea and gossiping about wildflowers, but when water department supervisor John Architrave is found murdered in the woods, club member Dittany Henbit turns to solving mysteries. After Architrave's will reveals that he bequeathed his ramshackle old house to the Grub-and-Stakers, with instructions for it to be turned into a museum, Dittany resigns herself to weeks of cleaning out the mansion and sorting through donated town 'artifacts.' The task turns interesting, however, the minute bodies start falling from the sky. The new curator is airing out the house's attic when he takes his tumble off the roof. So unlikely is it that he would fall out the tiny attic window, that Dittany has no choice but to attempt to add one captured killer to the young museum's permanent collection. Review Quote. 'The screwball mystery is Charlotte MacLeod's cup of tea.' - Chicago Tribune. 'Charlotte MacLeod does what she does better than anybody else does it; and what she does is in the top rank of modern mystery fiction.' - Elizabeth Peters, creator of the Amelia. Peabody series 'The epitome of the 'cozy' mystery.' - Mostly Murder. 'MacLeod can be counted on for a witty, literate and charming mystery.' - Publishers Weekly. Biographical note. Charlotte MacLeod (1922-2005) was an internationally bestselling author of cozy mysteries. Born in Canada, she moved to Boston as a child, and lived in New England most of her life. After graduating from college, she made a career in advertising, writing copy for the Stop & Shop Supermarket Company before moving on to Boston firm N. H. Miller & Co., where she rose to the rank of vice president. In her spare time, MacLeod wrote short stories, and in 1964 published her first novel, a children's book called 'Mystery of the White Knight.' In 'Rest You Merry' (1978), MacLeod introduced Professor Peter Shandy, a horticulturist and amateur sleuth whose adventures she would chronicle for two decades. 'The Family Vault' (1979) marked the first appearance of her other best-known characters: the husband and wife sleuthing team Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn, whom she followed until her last novel, 'The Balloon Man,' in 1998.

The Roswell Dig Diaries
10,10 CHF *

In July 1947, something crashed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico. What that object was, as well as what happened in the days following the crash, has been hotly disputed ever since. Did the United States government cover up the existence of an extraterrestrial UFO? Were alien bodies recovered from the crash site? Or was it all nothing more than the failed launch of a weather balloon? The 'Roswell Incident' remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of the twentieth century, and a source of enduring controversy. As part of the SCI FI Channel's ongoing mission to separate science fiction from science fact, the network sponsored an unprecedented, comprehensive archeological investigation of the crash site. Utilizing modern-day forensic tools, scientists from the University of New Mexico, in partnership with SCI FI, set out to uncover physical evidence to determine once and for all what really happened in the desert near Roswell. Only some of the team's discoveries were hinted at in SCI FI's highest-rated-ever documentary, The Roswell Crash: Startling New Evidence. Many have speculated about the true extent of what the dig team uncovered. Until now. The Roswell Dig Diaries presents to the public, for the very first time, the exclusive complete archeological report, including the final scientific conclusions of this landmark excavation and never-before-seen maps and photos of the crash site. This groundbreaking volume also takes you behind the scenes of the investigation with exclusive day-by-day personal journals and private company emails, written by everyone from the project leader, Dr. Bill Doleman, to Roswell Report authors Thomas J. Carey and Donald R. Schmitt, to SCI FI Channel executives, to the volunteer dig team members who helped make the investigation possible.
