The day that Liz Parker accidentally got in the way of a bullet in the Crashdown Cafe in Roswell, New Mexico, changed her life forever. Max Evans saved her life - by laying his hand on her and closing the gunshot wound as if it had never been. For Max, his sister Isabel and their friend Michael Guerin are alien beings, lost and alone in smalltown America, hiding their powers for fear of discovery, living their lives as ordinary students as best they can. Until in a moment of selfless madness, Max reveals himself to Liz, and Liz and her friends Maria and Alex - along with Sheriff Valenti, who has his own methods of ferretting out the truth - become the only humans in Roswell who know beyond any possible doubt that aliens are real.
Carrying that secret proves an unbearable strain for them all. Then a would-be relaxing trip to the scenic Carlsbad Caverns propels them into greater danger than ever. Eight hundred feet underground, Liz turns round and finds herself face to face with the last person she ever expected to see again... the man who shot her all those months ago in the diner. Maybe that day was no accident after all - maybe Liz was the target and not just an innocent bystander - because it soon becomes pretty clear to everyone that the gunman wants her dead...

About the author (2001)

Writing in the popular science fiction/horror genre, Greg Cox knows how to please readers with the right combination of humor, action, and gore, with good inevitably triumphing over evil. Within the wide readership of Trekkies, Cox is probably best known for his ambitious trilogy written for the Star Trek: The Next Generation series. In Q-Space, Q-Strike and Q-Zone (1998), the Starship Enterprise visits the exotic locale and ever-present aliens of the Q Continuum. The author has also written and co-written more than eight other titles. Marvel Comics fans also recognize Cox's contributions to their series of cult heroes, avengers, and villains in titles such as Iron Man: Operation A.I.M (1996) and Spider-Man: Goblins Revenge (1996). Cox's approach is well-illustrated in two horror titles he has edited: Tomorrow Sucks (1994), a scientific history of vampirism and Tomorrow Bites (1995), a scientific history of lycanthropy. In the Transylvanian Library: A Consumer's Guide to Vampire Fiction the author has compiled a bibliography of 250 authors, dating from 1819 and including synopsis, critical evaluation, and notes on film and television adaptations. Greg Cox was born in 1959 and is an editor at Tor Books. He is a frequent contributor to The New York Review of Science Fiction.
