Aliens and cookie girlfriends

So a guy falls for a pretty girl and disregards her unbalanced behavior. Her belief in Aliens coming to take her and her fellow chosen ones off to paradise in another galaxy. One day she disappears and he follows her all the way to America to find her, even faking belief in aliens himself.

Ok. Enough of the plot. I have read enough by this author (listened) to know that the guy seems to be the same in all the stories. He is a guy who falls almost obsessively in love with a beautiful girl who is somehow not who she seems, who betrays him in some way.

This love I just couldn't buy. Why would the guy fall so hard for someone with beliefs so opposed to his own, someone who is obsessed with her beliefs. So what if she is beautiful? She was a crackpot. Sorry to all you alien believers out there.

Good but not his best

Another easy-to-read, fast paced story by Mark Edwards. This one is exploring the dangers of sinister cults and the strengths of beliefs. Richard's girl-friend Mary believes in aliens. She is completely devoted to this cause. Richard is a non-believer. Then Mary vanishes and Richard goes on a thrilling search to find her leading him to some dark sections of society.
Because of the alien theme I wasn't sure whether this would be my kind of book, but it turned out to be another really compelling suspenseful thriller. I just love Mark Edward's writing style. He creates characters that come to life and you become invested in what is happening to them. Ok, not his best book, but still thoroughly enjoyable.
The narrator did a good job and was pleasant to listen to.
