Publisher's Summary

UFOs are real. When Jason Ridley discovers their shocking agenda, his actions will either transform humanity...or destroy it entirely. Unidentified details the actual evidence that UFOs are here, while offering a mind-blowing fictional take on the reasons why. A riveting pause-resister packed with nonstop action, epic ideas, and astonishing twists.

Ripped from today's headlines, Unidentified is the latest thriller from the NY Times best-selling author whose books have sold more than two million copies.

Between 2017 and 2021, the US military admitted to having undeniable evidence that UFOs (now UAVs or UAPs) are here and defy the laws of physics. When Jason Ramsey, a popular science-fiction writer, becomes obsessed with the subject, he undertakes a relentless quest to uncover what is really going on. After recruiting Tessa Barrett, an extraordinarily talented mercenary, Jason devises a risky, desperate plan to get to the bottom of it all. But the truth is far more shocking, convoluted, and dangerous than anyone could have guessed, and he has no idea who he can trust.

Jason soon realizes that he can only be certain of two things. He somehow holds the key to the future of the galaxy itself...and his chances of living out the week are vanishingly small.

Great imagination

If you’re looking for a story with a plot twist, with three or four more levels amongst those, then this is the book for you. I truly enjoyed the 1st person perspective, and the use of government confirmed truths that have been made public. I love how the author transitioned to his fictional creativity, and used the lore of ufology to create a immaculate weaved story that wants you to believe, or at least be curious. Like any great book, if it can make you question what you know and don’t know, the book did its job. At the end of the day…. It was a great fantasy!

great idea but stupid logic

was the author high or drunk or both cause it may have sounded good in his head but should have waited till he sobered up and read it back an example the woman bodyguard didn't want to be to be groped in a pat down so she undressed to show she wasn't armed wtf it's just one of many stupid ideas and logic that didn't make any sense need a new editor or something someone to say no to dumb as ideas like that had a great idea for a book then fumbled the he'll out of it

Ugg. Cool idea but….

I was excited about this book. I love the idea and plot but the story was just poorly crafted. The corny love story was so bad. Everything was incredibly predictable. It felt like I was reading a high school students essay submission or something. My eyes hurt from rolling so much.

Fascinating info but….

The prologue was so promising and the authors discussion at the end was so interesting, that I suspect the story was written by somebody else. The dialogue was amateurish and plot points were over explained, again and again, by characters pausing in the middle of action to recite lines that spelled out the plot. So disappointed! But still A fan of many of his other books!

Awesome

I really enjoyed this book, and the narration! I liked that it was written in first person too. And I also enjoyed the prologue, more than any prologue I’ve ever read! 😊. No fair reading that first, you wouldn’t understand it as well without the book first!

but why...?

But why didn't Tessa's EMP disable the nanites too? I can't stop thinking about it.

Enjoyable

I liked this book much better than Enigma Cube which I found too heavy handed. The humor and romance added greatly to the adventure and science fiction.

The premise

Just couldn't get past that anyone would give that much credence to a podcast, let alone an agency from another country.

Great story

Great story , however I don’t ever remember hearing a worse Aussie accent! Sounded like a kiwi/yank sometimes, other times I couldn’t even tell what it was . Horrible.
