“Unturned Stones has a storyline that is pretty unique. Novelist Jack Barrett receives an unpublished manuscript from the widow of the author. The story was intended to be about alien abductions and UFO conspiracies, but the author was killed in the Silver Bridge collapse before he could finish it.

Thirty years later, Jack gets into the manuscript along with taped recordings of the interviews, including an interview with a young boy who had been abducted over and over through the course of several months.

Also, the country has just elected the youngest man ever to become President of the United States. At thirty-five, he and his twenty-five-year-old wife are celebrated as the new JFK and Jackie.

As Jack and his neighbor Kat, a retired FBI agent and their friend Red, a retired ex-boxer who had recently won the lottery, investigate strange goings-on with UFO activity over Washington DC and mysterious men in black that can walk through snow without leaving tracks. The events get stranger and more weird as the days go by, followed by attempts on their lives.

This is a fair story that keeps the reader guessing. It’s packed with humorous dialogue and serious action.

There are quite a few spelling mistakes contained that could use a proofreader’s deft hand. One of the characters, Kat, is spelled Hat on numerous occasions. Quotation marks are exchanged with asterisks in several instances. A few sentences just don’t make sense at all. The word sheer is spelled shear every time.

In spite of all these errors, this is a wonderful story. Give it a try, I think you’ll enjoy it.”
