Book Description

For fans of Dan Brown and Clive Cussler, THE ROSWELL CONSPIRACY is a "masterful thriller" (James Rollins) "full of smart, intense action" (Patrick Lee).

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
After the 1908 Tunguska blast levels a Siberian forest the size of London, a Russian scientist makes an amazing discovery amongst the debris.

In 1947, ten-year-old Fay Allen of Roswell, New Mexico, witnesses the fiery crash of an extraordinary craft unlike anything she's ever seen.

More than sixty years later, former Army combat engineer Tyler Locke rescues Fay from gunmen who are after a piece of wreckage she claims is from the Roswell incident. Incredulous of her tale, Tyler believes the attack on Fay is nothing more than a burglary gone wrong. But when he finds himself locked in the back of a truck carrying a hundred tons of explosives and heading for a top secret American base, Tyler knows that he has stumbled onto the opening gambit of something more sinister than he ever imagined.

Because disgraced Russian spy Vladimir Colchev is after an Air Force prototype code-named Killswitch, an electromagnetic pulse weapon of unprecedented power. Although Tyler is able to avert catastrophe at the US facility, Colchev gets away with the bomb and plans to turn it on America itself. To complete his mission, he needs only one other key component, a mysterious object recovered from the Roswell crash.

In a desperate race against time, Tyler must unmask a conspiracy a century in the making to rescue the United States from electronic Armageddon.

*** Tyler Locke's other adventures are also available!
Book 1: THE ARK ("Mach-speed mayhem" -- Steve Berry)
Book 2: THE VAULT ("An electrifying blend of history, myth, and science" -- Publishers Weekly starred review)

REVIEWS:
"I've been a fan of Boyd Morrison since before he was published. In The Roswell Conspiracy, he shows his talent has not stopped growing. Here is a masterful thriller wrought with historical weight, technological prowess, and gut-twisting action, with an ending that left me breathless."
—James Rollins, NY Times bestselling author of The Devil Colony

"Sky-high stakes and relentless pacing from beginning to end. A thrill ride full of smart, intense action."
—Patrick Lee, NY Times bestselling author of Deep Sky

"Figuring out where fact ends and fiction begins is nearly impossible with Boyd Morrison's books. The Roswell Conspiracy is a fast paced thrill-ride with enough layers to give the book depth way beyond the frighteningly realistic plot. A perfect blend of historical fact and modern day threats that will keep you guessing late into the night."
—Brad Taylor, NY Times bestselling author of All Necessary Force

"Boyd Morrison has done it again! Relentless pace, intricate plotting, and an ending that ratchets up the tension to dizzying heights and keeps it there—seemingly forever. What more could anyone want?"
—Douglas Richards, NY Times bestselling author of Amped


Editorial Reviews

Review

A tense and heart stopping thriller from Boyd Morrison that offers an entirely new take on the Roswell incident of 1947, brought brilliantly up-to-date...the action never lets up. James Becker, bestselling author of The Nosferatu Scroll A masterful thriller wrought with historical weight, technological prowess, and gut-twisting action, with an ending that left me breathless. James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Colony As thrilling as it is smart, The Roswell Conspiracy is a full throttle adventure from first shot to final word. Just check your gun and parachute, take a deep breath and jump in to a whole world of history, deception and thrills. This is fast, fun and fascinating thriller writing at its most original. Sam Christer, bestselling author of The Stonehenge Legacy Grips the reader as the body count rises and the pieces of the mystery fall one by one into place...enough action and sticky ends to satisfy the most demanding thriller fan. Mystery People Morrison's novel is a very contemporary take on this murky affair that is both intriguing and a rip-roaring thriller in its own right. CHOICE magazine

3.0 out of 5 stars By-The-Numbers Thriller January 27, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ever read one of those books that you really want to like, but you had trouble getting into? You give it the benefit of the doubt, and read another chapter, hoping it's just your mood, or the fact that you had a hard day. And four or five days and several chapters later you've read so far that even though you're still not into the book now you feel guilty when thoughts of giving up cross your mind.

I really wanted to love Boyd Morrison's THE ROSWELL CONSPIRACY. Boyd's a terrific guy; his books are very popular; and he's from Seattle, my backyard. Here's the thing: there's nothing wrong with this thriller. It's by-the-numbers genre fare, and handled quite capably. In fact, if you like Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt, you'll probably love Boyd Morrison's Tyler Locke. Handsome, smart, athletic and handy in a firefight (not to mention anytime you need someone to pilot your C-17), Locke is perhaps a stereotypical thriller hero, ably assisted by friend, engineer and former Special Forces sergeant Grant Westfield.

My problem with THE ROSWELL CONSPIRACY is that it's too cookie-cutter. Like I said, it's not bad. It's just been done before, and more originally, by guys like Cussler, who invented this particular sub-genre a generation ago. Oh, did I mention that if you like that sort of thing--muscular action figures (guys and gals), globe-trotting searches for clues to ancient riddles, world-changing discoveries and/or treasures, constant danger from evil, power-mad villains with access to the nastiest of weapons--you'll love this book?

Boyd Morrison's Dynamic Duo of Tyler Locke and Grant Westfield get a fresh new platform from the "Roswell Incident" to do what they do best: discover truths, follow archeological and undercover criminal gov. ops' trails, hit on girls, have girls hit on them... and solve an improbable new theory/conspiracy outside Area 51 lore. Readers who have read Morrison's The Ark, and The Vault, will be just as thrilled, if not more, with Tyler & Grants action and adventure, around the globe. As usual, Boyd Morrison creates an action/thriller that takes a total twist away from any preconceived notions you may have about the subject matter, Thank You Boyd! Since the Roswell incident has been beaten to death in all kinds of media reports, books, conspiracies, etc... I was dubious of this book, but being a fan of Morrison's other well-crafted stories on "old" subjects, I jumped in and was glad I did. A page-turning action/thriller you won't want to put down, or turn off if you read it in e-book format. I love everything Tyler and Grant get into, I wouldn't mind running with them - as they are perfectly "normal" guys who have been well-trained from their pasts,to triumph over the bad guys in most creative ways. Loved it! 5 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic international locations, fast paced plot June 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
You might think that you know the story of Roswell but Morrison skillfully weaves a fast paced action-adventure story that continues to surprise throughout the book. I love the international locations and having experienced the jetboats in New Zealand, it's great to see them used for a chase scene. Tyler Locke and his sidekick Grant rescue Faye, an older lady who was given an artefact by what she perceived as an alien all those years ago at Roswell. This leads them on a trail through Australia to Easter Island and then the Nazca ruins with a dramatic conclusion high above the earth. I enjoyed the research that had gone into the book as well as the fictional story that kept my attention. This is definitely my favorite of Boyd Morrison's books so far.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tyler and crew are supporting characters August 28, 2012
By mtgman
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was good but the main characters were reduced to strong supporting characters at best, if you are coming off the high the last book left you and you want to push that feeling even higher this is not that book. It took a little longer to get through to the end of this book because it just wasn't that good, wasn't bad but it missed the pace, structure, imagintive story line and it telegrafted most of it's moves. I maybe a little harder on this one because the last one was so good but I did expect a strong showing after the Vault and this just was not it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but trite character development June 9, 2013
By H. Bond
Format:Kindle Edition
Boyd Morrison tells a pretty good story, and there is lots of action in his book The Roswell Conspiracy. An older woman believes that she interacted with an alien creature who crashed a spaceship near Roswell, NM when she was a young girl, and she is seeking a more detailed explanation at the end of her life. Americans have developed a high tech new weapon that relies on a very rare element found only in meteorites, and a band of rogue Russian spies try to steal it. A chase to find any remaining bits of this rare element lead everyone to Australia, Easter Island, Mexico, and finally to the upper Midwestern U.S. I enjoyed the story.

On the downside, the characters are too cartoonish and I really could not care that much about any of them. There is the rich, handsome, engineer/entrepreneur with a PhD from MIT and his friend from his Army Ranger days who is a fun-loving womanizer. Of course, there is a feisty, intelligent love interest who is the niece of the woman who talked to the alien. All of the bad guys are one-dimensional in their badness.

I enjoyed this book and it was a great value for the price, but there was nothing memorable or special in it. If you are looking for a lightweight escapist read, take a chance -- you will probably enjoy it, too.
