UFOs are all in the imagination. Aren't they?In 2014, Ethan Warner finds himself on the hook for a homicide near Kankakee, Illinois. Although unarmed at the time, witnesses swear they saw him shoot and kill a bail runner on a dark night on a bridge just outside the town. Jailed and facing twenty to life, Ethan's only hope is that his partner, Nicola Lopez, can solve the crime before he's sent down.Lopez traces clues to the tiny town of Cairo, Illinois, and a secretive cult rumored to be hiding in the backwoods. But before she can crack the case Ethan is bailed by a mysterious woman desperate for his help. Her conditions are simple; rescue her son from the Cairo cult, or she'll rescind the bail and Ethan's back inside.His hand forced, Ethan skips bail and heads south. With the police and Sheriffs on his tail, it's a race against time to figure out why Ethan was framed for homicide. But the forests of Cairo hide a secret that's beyond human comprehension, and nothing Ethan and Nicola have seen yet can prepare them for it...REVIEWPraise for Dean Crawford:"The fossilized remains of a 7,000-year-old creature dug from the sands of the Negev Desert in Israel become the bones of contention in Dean Crawford's fast-paced debut thriller...
