Are we alone? Jim Marrs, author of the New York Times bestseller Crossfire, weaves together a wealth of new and long-suppressed evidence to present this unique, definitive examination (more than 25,000 hardcover copies sold) of alien and paranormal events here -- right now.

Award-Winning Investigative Journalist Jim Marrs combines everything ever heard -- and much that hasn't -- about extraterrestrials into a Grand Unified Theory of UFOs that encompasses everything from "ancient astronauts" to human abduction scenarios, from crop circles to cattle mutilations, from government conspiracies to "missing time". Marrs draws on eyewitness accounts and reams of hitherto classified government files, and taps sources deep within military intelligence's "black ops" to present convincing proof that we have been visited extensively by alien lifeforms -- and that the federal government has been aware of this contact for half a century. Finally, he explains why aliens are coming here, and why our leaders don't want us to know it.

As demonstrated by the mass appeal of shows like The X-Files and the willingness of respected academics like John Mack to embrace the possibility that we are not alone, interest in the alien presence among us has never been higher. With his impeccable credentials and rigorous analysis, Jim Marrs firmly shifts this interest into the mainstream -- and the spotlight.

"Compelling reading". -- Washington Post
