While he still contemplates what he saw and was told by Lieutenant Fuller, Allen is whisked away by Quinn to investigate the next purported space ship sighting. This case takes them to rural Flatwoods, West Virginia, where the Downing family - consisting of Sara Downing and her two adolescent children - reported seeing a flying saucer dart through the sky before crashing in the woods. In investing the resulting burning area of the crash, they reported seeing a ten foot monster - an alien being - before they ran away from it. In speaking to the Downings and visiting the crash site themselves, Allen and Quinn find among other things that the two children have both suffered from burn like marks solely around their eyes, with an associated increasing sensitivity to light. They also speak to another eyewitness who reported seeing the monster, she whose credibility is brought into question. In trying to figure out what they all saw, Allen and Quinn may ultimately be more concerned about personal safety as a militia of sorts has been formed by the locals who, in their mob mentality, are turning on the Downings in not finding anything else to explain what happened, Sara who in turn may do anything to protect herself and her children, with Allen and Quinn possibly being caught in the middle unless they can come up with a logical explanation. Through it all, Allen knows that there is someone else out there who is investigating this case for an unknown reason, that person who does not want his identity to be discovered. Meanwhile back in Columbus, Mimi goes out with Susie, which takes Mimi into some uncharted and at times uncomfortable territory. Part of Susie's plan in taking Mimi out is for the house to be empty for an extended period of time. —Huggo
