THE INCIDENT AT COOPER HILL
Mysterious lights are seen in the sky over famous UFO hot-spot Cooper Hill. When a local forest ranger suffers a strange death, the visiting UFO spotters are convinced aliens are responsible. DCI Barnaby and DS Nelson unearth suspicions, betrayals and long-buried secrets in their search for the truth.
After mysterious lights appear over Cooper Hill, apparent location for several UFO sightings, forest ranger Felicity Ford is found dead and wrapped in black ooze. Ufologists arrive in the area for tours run by enterprising Abigail Tonev and DCI Barnaby and DS Nelson learn that one of them, Carter Faulkner, had a run-in with Felicity over parking. Before she died had tried to call her father, a group captain at a radar station - who denies receiving any call. Felicity was also having an affair behind her future husband's back. The idea of extraterrestrials seems credible when Abigail has a close encounter of the third kind, but following two more slayings Barnaby is able to provide an earthly solution to The Incident at Cooper Hill.
