We are not alone. Millions of people are confronting aliens that authorities say do not exist.

Meet the Three Thieves, a group of Grays assigned to duty in a small Kentucky town. They have been preparing a child for generations. Innocent Conner Callaghan will face the ultimate terror as he struggles to understand who he has been bred to be, and what he must do to save humanity. Colonel Michael Morax strives to keep the secret of the Grays from the public for reasons so sinister, yet believable, that they read like truth. And Lauren Glass, government "empath" to the last surviving captive Gray, known only as B for Bob, has a unique ability to communicate with this captive Gray. But when B for Bob suddenly escapes the highly secure underground Air Force facility that he's been captive in for years, a frantic race begins, as the government must outmaneuver the Grays to keep the secret of their presence intact.

The Grays is a mind-bending journey behind the curtain of secrecy that surrounds the subject of aliens, written by the field's great master, Whitley Strieber. If you've never so much as thought about the subject before, this book will make you think deeply, not only about the mystery of who the Grays are, but who exactly we are.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd Van Meter | 2/18/2014

    " An interesting and entertaining fictional account of one possible explanation of the UFO phenomenon and its effect upon the human race. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cam | 2/3/2014

    " This book was so exciting to read. It will make a great movie if they are able to capture at least some of the subtlety. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/25/2014

    " This book could have really used a better editor. And it is written for a sequel. That kind of annoys me, since there is nothing to say a sequel will be written. Still, interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gregg Bromgard | 1/20/2014

    " started off great but then dropped off "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronni Jo | 1/3/2014

    " I was so skeptical about this book. Alien conspiracies are not my cup of tea, but I really, really liked it. I couldn't put it down and at the end, found myself wanting more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gayla | 12/27/2013

    " Great Story. Makes you think, yup this could really happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug | 12/20/2013

    " I loved this book. Even though it is a fictional tale, the story makes you think about life and life around you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 11/30/2013

    " Pretty good book if you're able to suspend belief long enough to finish. The ending is pretty predictable though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 11/24/2013

    " I totally didn't know that the author really belives in UFO's and stuff like that, so I thought this was just a fun story. Very "DaVinci Code". I've been encouraged to read his other books, but I really have no interest in "true" alien stories right now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bc | 11/16/2013

    " An imaginative and exciting story... again with the slow-on-the-uptake male lead and the sexiest babes to be imagined ( I am learning to take that as a given ) and some slight-of-hand narrative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly Amendola | 10/12/2013

    " What a creepy book. The writing makes you think this could really be happening. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bonnie | 10/10/2013

    " Another slightly wacked out fantasy about alien abduction from the author who actually believes in it. This one had a fairly satisfying ending, however, compared to "communion." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce Emmerling | 10/10/2013

    " A very good fictional work based on the premise that an alien race is interacting with humanity. Much of the book's storyline and characters are based on information from UFO studies. It was very good read, regardless whether one believes in UFOs or not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robnoxious Robnoxious | 9/29/2013

    " This book compelled my to read it. I found myself wandering the stacks at the Franklin Avenue library and this book fell off the shelf and into my hands. Perhaps a bit of a cheesy ending, but excellent anyway. Easy to read. Fun. In a terrifying exposure of government/alien secrets kind of way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 R2roswell | 8/28/2013

    " Talk about adventurous. Definately one of those great alien abduction tales. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 5/30/2013

    " I don't usually like Sci Fi but I found this book very good and entertaining throughout. Liked it a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 4/22/2013

    " I loved the book I had a hard time putting it down. I kind of felt a little off put with Conner's father tenure sub plot at the beginning, but I loved how their was two plots intertwine. The only problem I had was the characters weren't detailed enough for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy Lowe | 10/28/2012

    " A great read, especially if you're already a fan of ufology. "

    " absolutely phenomenal!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 6/29/2012

    " Truly compelling. This one I couldn't put down until I was finished reading it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurel | 11/29/2011

    " Not my favorite book. The author himself believes that what he's writing about is true, and who knows? There are some thought-provoking theories about humankind's past/genetic history. But the aliens-among-us stuff was a bit more than I really enjoy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick | 11/3/2011

    " This is a great take on the UFO/Alien agenda. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 10/19/2011

    " Enjoyed this book very much. It was interesting throughout. The characters felt real. Lots of suspence and excitement. I would recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barrett Brown | 8/8/2011

    " Entertaining with lots of real life factlets from the guy who wrote the non-fiction book on Aliens "Communion." The story-line was not so enthralling that I was very interested in the ending (everyone knows what's going to happen, I mean puh-leeze), but was surprised at a few things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marc-Antoine | 5/28/2011

    " It was entertaining, but at times confusing, felt like the story did not know where to go, and a little too far fetched here and there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl/Aradanryl | 9/19/2010

    " spooky and interesting, I enjoyed this flight of fantasy. Definitely a good read.

    Publisher's weekly called it "literary paranoia" and I think that fits it quite well.

    "
