What really happened in Area 51?
Adam Pagnucco is just trying to help out a stranger who’s down and out. He has no idea that man is Winston Koop, his exceptionally talented ex-best friend. Koop and Nuke had been inseparable in college, but then life happened.
Nuke finally quit drinking, and Koop – Koop was at the center of a massive conspiracy that the government faked UFOs just to cover it up. Even after confessing to removing the memories of hundreds of people, Koop is still hiding something crucial from Nuke. The truth is even stranger than fiction, and time is running out for the real inhabitants of the Roswell site. Can Nuke somehow find a way to forgive…but not to forget?
In his long-awaited new novel, Patrick O’Leary (Door Number Three) deftly navigates the invisible currents of secrets and forgiveness. Gripping, profound, and utterly unique, 51 is sure to please fans of fans of smart paranormal nostalgia, such as The X-FilesOld Man’s War, and Stranger Things.
