This true story will change the way you view UFO reports and alien abduction stories. It all began November 1990 while award-winning writer Ron Felber was on a business trip to Southern California when a long-time associate contacted him about a middle class couple, Dawn and Steve Hess, who believed they were victims of an terrifying alien abduction in the Mojave Desert. They were subjected to twenty-four hours of anguishing mental torture while on a camping trip in 1989. At first the Hesses did not want the incident known but finally agreed to let Ron write their story in the book, Searchers: A True Story of Alien Abduction (1994).
From the Hesses own recall and hypnotic regression sessions conducted months later a terrifying close encounter of the third kind involving other-worldy creatures and their agenda began to emerge. The Hesses encounter is one of the most remarkable, detailed and important ufology stories of our time.
Ron Felber began his writing career with articles based on his experiences for True Detective magazine, and went on to write three books in the classic Nick Carter series. His most recent novel is A Man of Indeterminate Value. His book IL Dottore: The Double Life of a Mafia Doctor is the basis for the Fox TV series, The Mob Doctor.
