“In Alien Hunter, the trope of aliens on Earth is refitted to provide enough suspense to keep any reader interested. Even those who usually stay away from alien fantasy will be drawn to this reality-based novel. The characters are complex and surprising at various points in the novel, and just when the book begins to feel predictable, Strieber adds another twist. His excellent storytelling will keep readers guessing until the very end.”

“Whitley Strieber at his best—part Stephen King, part Dean Koontz, but always Whitley. Pulse-pounding action and a perplexing puzzle but most of all Alien Hunter has real feeling—a heart as big as the Ritz.”
—Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Impact
“A fast-paced, action-packed thriller that blends Whitley Strieber’s famed interest in aliens with a breathless police manhunt.”
