Publisher's Summary

Find the missing. Fear the found.
Three months have passed since the aliens' arrival, but little has changed in the skies. Motherships still hover, impervious to attack and communication. Spherical shuttles ferry about with unclear intentions. But the abductions of select humans have ended, and most of those taken have been returned - dazed, incoherent, and prophesying glory or doom, but home where they belong.
Still, nine seemingly unconnected people remain missing.
Trapped in their besieged bunker outside Vail, Piper, Trevor, Lila, and Heather wait for one.
All of this has happened before....
For his entire life, Benjamin Bannister has sought the connections uniting the planet's ancient wonders. And for years he's pursued evidence that extraterrestrial life isn't new to Earth. For years he was dismissed as a fool. Now the spheres have arrived, and Benjamin has found vindication...along with troubling theories. His research facility rests on a paranormal hotspot in Moab, Utah - but Vail, Colorado is where his interests lie. He's sent an emissary to Meyer Dempsey's ranch to find out what makes the Missing Nine so special to the planet's invaders. What news will those nine bring when they return? And what, as the motherships again move like pieces finding positions on a chessboard, will happen next?
And...it will all happen again.
Vail and Moab, Moab and Vail - two epicenters in the cold alien war. The locations' fates seem somehow intertwined as Earth's clock ticks toward midnight. The roads and communications have been closed, but now it seems that the planet's future might depend on a journey from one to the other, no matter the cost. Humanity must find the value of those who have been taken...or become mere fossil evidence for future archaeologists to puzzle over.

Wait....what just happened???

While the first book laid a lot of ground work on personalities and could be slow going, Contact picks up speed with an effortless touch of twists to make you want just 5 five more minutes of story time -- no matter how late it is! The right balance of surprise, but not over the top unbelievable. A really enjoyable story. And if you're not listening to Ray Porter read it to you, you are really missing out!!

Smash Hit

Wonderful second audio book. Humans manipulated while others hide. What do the Aliens want? Telepathy real or false? What is next?
Narration is key to keeping the story going at jet sped. A must book.

Quite entertaining

Narrator is great in my opinion. Story quite good and keeping you interested, although sometimes I had that feeling, that the story slows down. Kind of like in TV dramas when presumably creators have to slow the pace to not reveal too much in just one episode. Apart from that, pretty good and I enjoyed it very much.

I lost the plot

Would you try another book written by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant or narrated by Ray Porter?

No I'm done

What was most disappointing about Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant ’s story?

Contact is such a poor title, more like, contactless! I wanted to know who these aliens were, why they were here, what were we doing about it, anything that would keep me listening... by the end of the book I had to ask myself why I was still listening

Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Only the previous book, and he did a great job

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Hope...a hope that it would get to the point of the story

Any additional comments?

Change the titles..book one should be "Road trip from chaos" and book two, " Bunker living in the age of unknown aliens".
