This book has the feel of the whole Roswell UFO encounter. It has an interesting beginning which instantly sucks you into the action. The inexplicable events in Rostov, Texas are rather strange and the massacre is totally bizarre. The LIGHTS are addictive and over time, seem to cause violent behavior and personality changes in all the viewers. It's all somehow tied to the secret military installation a few miles away. The action really heats up when Captain Raleigh arrives from Maryland with ulterior motives. A paranormal mystery with tones of pyschotic behavior and ancient military weapons secrets. Well written with very interesting characters. I found this to be a relatively quick and enjoyable read.

This book was pretty good, with some fast-paced events occurring, but you do not really get the answer to the question it presents, as to what causes the lights, so that was a bit disappointing. It does wrap up well enough to be satisfied, though. Worth reading, but I wouldn't especially recommend it.
