Publisher's Summary

Everyone has heard of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. But what about close encounters of the fatal kind? The field of UFOs is rife with unsettling examples of suspicious deaths. Accounts of accidents that might not have been accidents after all, abound. Researchers and witnesses have vanished, never to be seen again. Conveniently timed heart attacks are reported.

Out-of-the-blue suicides that, upon investigation, bear the distinct hallmarks of murder, are all too common. And grisly deaths at the hands of both extraterrestrials and government agents have occurred. Highlights of Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind include:

  • The strange saga of the incredible melting man.
  • The UFO-related death of the first US Secretary of Defense, James Forrestal.
  • The mysterious disappearances of military pilots and their connection to UFOs.

Getting too close to the cosmic truth about alien abductions, Roswell, and what the government really knows about UFOs can - clearly - be a deadly business. The government's latest admission of the existence of Area 51 is barely the tip of a very big iceberg.

    "Enjoyed, but a little far fetched."

    I found some of the accounts in this book a little far fetched, with only the hard core conspiracy theorists really taking them seriously.

    Story
    "The Master of Juxtaposition"
    Would you listen to Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind again? Why?

    Yes! There's a wealth of detail here, making it good reading for a class I teach on the paranormal. I'll definitely be using a few quotations from it for my lectures.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Nick is great at taking well-known material, combining it with some new or less well-known stuff, and putting the information into fascinating context and relationship. I think he does this better than any other Ufologist. He amazing at developing his arguments thoroughly, a quality I'd like to see in my students' term papers.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was an adequate performance with a guy who has an unexceptional and relatively unobtrusive tone and style. He's a bit repetitive and formulaic in his phrasing and timing of the sentences. Just ok.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually yes, although it's too long to do so, at least for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it! I you're into UFO research, it'll make you a bit paranoid!
