    Soldiers from Arizona's the Durango Military Installation, Sector 17 arrive under the command and control of a secret intelligence organization that plan to recover the saucer. The soldiers wear special safety suits as they enforce martial law. No one can enter or leave the perimeter established to contain the townsfolk and the saucer occupants. Communications to the outside world is also severed, further isolating the residents of Collier. As the excavation goes slowly, the military invaders trample even more on the civil liberties of the locals. Hostilities are becoming so commonplace outright war is a distinct possibility.

    If a person were asked to describe the works of James A. Moore, one could easily respond that the author combines the best of Koontz and Little in a unique style of his own. FIREWORKS is another one of Mr. Moore's usual cross genre appeal tale that will more than enthrall horror and conspiracy buffs with its out of this world story line.
