In Diablo Mesa, archeologist Nora Kelly is tricked into working on a project at the site of the Roswell Incident in 1947—even though she doesn’t believe in extraterrestrials.
While excavating, Nora’s team discovers the bodies of a man and a woman that appear to date from the 1940s. In addition, some of their instruments’ readings lead many on the team to conclude that an alien spacecraft did crash in the New Mexico desert. But where is the spacecraft now? The team begins to look for it. In the meantime, FBI Agent Corrie Swanson is put in charge of determining who the murdered couple are and what were the circumstances surrounding their deaths.
I loved this book up until about 40% in, when it suddenly became a spy thriller. I expected, and wanted, more archeology, forensic science, and Roswell alien mythology. However, it still was a fast and fun adventure. For those that want a spy thriller, Diablo Mesa works well. 4 stars!
Thanks to Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
