Okay, here is the deal! This is an absolutely great start to a continuing novel and I can't wait for the second chapter. The writing is excellent, the characters well developed and the storyline is not only believable but it sucks you in. Nothing in the story is there just for window dressing - everything has a purpose even if you don't know what it is at the time. We haven't even met the beautiful wife yet but I can't wait. Please Mr. Alien, I beg of you, finish the next chapter.
