Amazon Synopsis:

After 27 years as a newspaper man, Peter Anderson’s career is slipping away, at least it was, until he stumbled upon the story of a lifetime. Sent to do a fluff piece about lights in the night sky over Arizona, he discovers far more than he ever expected when he comes upon a mysterious young woman held prisoner in a basement. After helping her to escape, she disappears before he can learn the truth about who she is or where she came from. His search for her leads him back to the lights in the sky and leaves him with more questions than answers. The only thing he knows for certain . . . the only thing he can count on are the two words offered repeatedly by his friend and guide . . . “IS BELT.”

My Thoughts:

Peter Anderson has been a reporter for 27 years. His career is slipping away on him and he’s sent to do a fluff piece on some lights in the night sky in Arizona, but he discovers so much more. He finds the story of a lifetime when he saves a woman held prisoner in a basement.

This is just the beginning of a long journey with his newfound friend Bob that he meets on this expedition into the unexplainable who always has a cousin available to help in any situation. He often reminds Peter “IS BELT” for his own safety.

Someone has an original DVD of the lights in the Arizona sky provin what they are. But can Peter get anyone to believe him? Can he survive long enough to get anyone to believe him? Who is it exactly is it that wants to keep him from spreading this news? These are the questions that spring up in his mind. Fortunately, Bob and his cousins are there to help him wind his way through the treacherous twists and turns of this wild and crazy and often humorous story and the twists and turns in its plot spins in directions you’d never expect.

There’s lots of action in Bob and the story will hold your interest from beginning to end. It’s an easy book to sit down with and read late into the night with.

I thoroughly enjoyed Bob’s cousins, from the black-skinned cousin to the Italian cousin that spoke only Italian yet seemed to answer Peter in English every question. I thought that the plot was plausible and the characters were realistic.

If you’ve ever wondered if there is life out there in the universe other than ours, this might be a fun read for you. I gave Bob 4 stars out of 5.

Thank you to the publishers for providing a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.

About the Author:

            I was raised pretty much the same as everyone else... devoted mother, strict father and all the imaginary friends I could conjure. Not that I wasn't friendly, I just wasn't "people orientated". Maybe I lived in my head way more than I should have, maybe not. I liked machines more than people, at least I did until I met my wife.

         The first thing I can remember writing was for her. For the life of me I can't remember what it was about... something about dust bunnies under the bed and monsters in my closet. It must have been pretty good because she married me shortly after that. I spent a good number of years after inventing games and prototypes for a variety of ideas before I got back to writing.

         It wasn't a deliberate conscious thought, it was more of a stepping stone. My wife and I had joined a dream interpret group and we were encouraged to write down our dreams as they occurred. "Be as detailed as you can," we were told.

         I was thrilled. If there is one thing I enjoy it's making people believe me and I like to exaggerate. Not a big exaggeration or an out right lie mine you, just a little step out of sync, just enough so you couldn't be sure if it were true or not.  When I write, I always write with the effort of "it could happen" very much in mind and nothing, I guarantee you, nothing, makes me happier.
