A series of mischances leads an alien to kill a human doctor, and get arrested in the small town of Carterville, Wyoming. His alien friends bungle his rescue, and the entire town sees him go up in red flames! Now, the entire town understands that aliens have come to Earth. And the aliens are desperate to keep that knowledge from spreading - so desperate that when David Vincent finds out what they plan to do, he desperately tries to strike a deal with them to stop it. If he fails, the town of Carterville may find itself under water - a lot of water. Written by
