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...
