Publisher Comments:

We are not alone. Millions of people are confronting aliens that authorities say do not exist. Whitley Strieber — author of the legendary, #1 bestselling book Communion, which details his own close encounters — now returns to the riddle of aliens with The Grays.

A triumvirate of Grays, known as the Three Thieves, has occupied a small Kentucky town for decades — abducting its residents and manipulating fates and bloodlines in hopes of creating an ultra-intelligent human being. Nine-year-old Conner Callahan will face the ultimate terror as he struggles to understand who he has been bred to be and what he must do to save humanity.

Though the Grays have slowly begun to make themselves known, Colonel Michael Wilkes, the head of a select group of government and military officials that have been monitoring the aliens, will do anything in his power to keep them a secret. Wilkes will set in motion a sinister plan to ensure the survival of humanity — but at what cost?

The fate of the human race lies with one woman, Lauren Glass. Her uncanny ability to communicate with the aliens and her relationship with the last remaining captive gray may be the only way to save humankind.

The Grays is a mind-bending journey behind the curtain of secrecy that surrounds the subject of aliens, written by the field's great master. If you've never so much as thought about the subject before, this book will make you think deeply, not only about the mystery of who the Grays are, but who exactly we are.

Review:

"Fact into fiction? In bestseller Strieber's engrossing SF thriller, which draws heavily from Communion (1987), the author's controversial account of his personal contact with aliens, Danny and Katelyn Callaghan are a happily married couple oblivious that both took a saucer ride as kids — until a UFO sighting in their Indiana town awakens subliminal memories and excites their genius teenage son, Conner. Meanwhile, in a secret facility in Colorado, Air Force Lt. Lauren Glass learns that the Roswell incident really happened, and that for decades the surviving ETs have been sharing their advanced science with us. In exchange, these 'Grays' have sought to rejuvenate their dying species by genetically manipulating human receptacles for their DNA. But some military hard-liners see this as a betrayal of humanity, and they launch a manhunt that brings them to Indiana and the Callaghans' doorstep. Though Strieber's human characters are sometimes as stiff and unbelievable as his Grays, his depiction of black ops intrigue and military espionage is a first-rate exercise in literary paranoia. It goes without saying that his abduction scenarios have a disturbing authenticity that even skeptical readers will find provocative." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The author of the legendary, #1 bestseller Communion draws from a lifetime of research and his own experiences for this fictional account of the conspiracy behind the alien presence on Earth, providing a startling look inside the alien mind.

i love to read, February 20, 2008 (view all comments by i love to read)
I wonder why people are so spooked out by aliens and the possibility that this author's ideas are actual reality. Aliens do not scare me. The word alien simply means foreign. In assuming that they exist and in me hiding secrets that the majority of the world finds crazy, I believe that not all aliens are bad.
