When a high-speed chase goes terribly wrong, Santa Fe police officer Dan Page watches in horror as a car and gas tanker explode into flames. Torn with guilt that he may be responsible, Page returns home to discover that his wife, Tori, has disappeared.

Frantic, Page follows her trail to Rostov, a remote town in Texas famous for a massive astronomical observatory, a long-abandoned military base, and unexplained nighttime phenomena that draw onlookers from every corner of the globe. Many of these gawkers—Tori among them—are compelled to visit this tiny community to witness the mysterious Rostov Lights.

Without warning, a gunman begins firing on the lights, screaming “Go back to hell where you came from,” then turns his rifle on the bystanders. A bloodbath ensues, and events quickly spiral out of control, setting the stage for even greater violence and death.

Page must solve the mystery of the Rostov Lights to save his wife. In the process, he learns that the decaying military base may not be abandoned at all, and that the government may have known about the lights for decades. Could these phenomena be more dangerous than anyone could have possibly imagined?

From AudioFile:

Call this book what you want--novel, mystery, sci-fi, thriller, or adventure--it's all here. And Phil Gigante has just the voice to make it all work. A cop's wife goes missing and is found in a nearby town, where she, and hundreds like her, are transfixed by strange lights that have appeared in the sky there for years. Meanwhile, at a government installation nearby, something very strange is going on. Are the two phenomena linked? Phil Gigante's multifaceted voice will let you know at exactly the right time. In the meantime, he portrays a thundering madman, a gravelly voiced sheriff, a 30-something woman, a grandfather, and the manly hero of this story, Dan Page. Listening to Gigante, you find it hard to believe he's the only narrator. A.L.H. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
