In 1949, UFO sightings in Roswell, New Mexico, and the fears of Secretary of Defense James Forrestal for his life provide a new case for Nathan Heller, president of Chicago's A-1 Detective Agency

Blackwell North Amer
Washington, 1949. With World War II over and Truman in the White House, the country stands on the threshold of the fabulous fifties. Even Chicago private eye Nathan Heller is reaping the fruits of the postwar boom: His A-1 Detective Agency has acquired a respectable new address and a more or less respectable clientele. But a summons to Washington plunges Heller into the dark side of the new era where creeping Commie paranoia has everyone seeing Red, master muckrakers like Drew Pearson are pointing fingers at the rich and famous from Beverly Hills to Capitol Hill, and atomic-age jitters have the whole country doing the duck-and-over.
Retiring Secretary of Defense James Forrestal believes that someone is out to get him. He wants Heller to find out who and why. It's an investigation that will take Heller from Washington to the desert town of Roswell, New Mexico, where a UFO is rumored to have landed two years before.
When Heller uncovers information about a mysterious military group called Majestic Twelve, evidence of a far-reaching conspiracy begins to surface.
