As part of the Greatest Generation, Major Anthony Spinelli, a World War II fighter pilot, flew into combat to save his family and keep them free. Two years later, he lost them in the blink of an eye, leaving Tony rudderless and without purpose. Then, on a dark, moonless night, in the skies above 1947 New Mexico, he has an encounter that will change humanity forever. However, when an accident threatens to unleash unimaginable destruction, Tony must race against time and unwinding plots to save us...and maybe himself along the way.

A great starting point, what happens next?
"As good a day as any."
There is a feel of authenticity to Dean Cole's prequel to the two part Sector 64 series that had me reaching for the Audible 'purchase' button to get the omnibus edition as soon as I had finished listening. As indicated in the title, this book is a first contact story, set in the latter part of the 1940s, two years after the first nuclear detonation. An alternative history, it focuses on the flight of Tony, a pilot whose recent loss has left him almost inconsolable, and his experiences at that eventful time.
Read by R.C.Dean, the story comes alive, his slightly gravelly voice capturing Tony's personality, his incredulity at what was happening to and around him, and recording the unfolding events almost like a documentary. Excellently done.
If the remainder of this series lives up to the promise of this shorter prequel, this will be a series to enjoy. Watch this space (ha, ha!)
