While much of the world waits and watches the skies for signs of alien civilizations, there is a select group of men who know the truth. That alien beings are here--now--walking among us in human form. These men are members of an agency dedicated to tracking and policing the movements of these aliens--a top secret organization known only as...Men in Black.

James Edwards is a tenacious, streetwise NYPD cop who's recruited by Agent Kay of the Men in Black. He will step into a world where his identity will be erased, where nothing is what it seems on the surface. His first case will threaten to make Earth the battleground for two warring races...and end humanity's rule in a fiery apocalypse.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Three Vermars, tall and reedy aliens who looked a lot like man-sized centipedes balanced on their tails, stood next to a water cooler, shooting the breeze.  They spoke Vermararian, which always sounded to Kay like a cross between Esperanto and microphone feedback.  And they smelled like fresh doughnuts.

Iggy, the senior of the triad, waved a pseudopod at Kay as he went to get coffee.

"How they floating, Iggy?  Damn, don't tell me we're out of cream again? All we got is this powdered shit?"

Iggy chittered.  Pointed at the counter.

"Oh, yeah, thanks.  I didn't see it."  He found the cream behind a box of stale doughnuts.  "Thanks, Iggy."

Kay poured some cream into his coffee, stirred it, then looked at Edwards. "Okay, kid, you ready to roll?"

Edwards stood there with his mouth open, staring.  Kay nodded at the Vermars. "See you around, guys."

They gave him some feedback squeals and waved.

Kay walked to where Edwards stood.  Put one finger under his chin and pushed his mouth closed.  "For future reference, this is a better look for you," he said.  "Besides, some of our clients take that open mouth as a threat, you know?"

Edwards looked at him.

"C'mon, kid.  Let's go take a walk.  I'll fill you in on what you need to know."
