Vanished by Alton Gansky

Vanished continues the saga of former submarine captain J.D. Stanton from A Ship Possesed. Once again, Gansky has crafted an only slightly possible science fiction story. The story starts when Stanton arrives in a town in New Mexico that is housing a government facility. The problem: there are only three remaining citizens. One is a young boy who doesn't speak, one is a crazy homeless woman, and the other is a mad scientist who knows what happened to everyone but won't disclose the information. Stanton, along with these three and several other people, suddenly find themselves being chased by mysterious black ops in helicopters. This part of the story is a bit worn out, thus keeping it off the Elite List.
This book is not near as good as the first but still manages to be suspenseful and exciting (even with the black ops). The whole idea behind the plot is a little out there, which is the main difference from the first book in this series. It seems Alton is just trying to be very different with this idea. The final chapters get rather bizarre but still manage to be exciting.
