In the second episode in James Patterson's new series, alien hunter Daniel X faces a unique brand of evil purveyed by baddie #5 on the List of Alien Outlaws on Terra Firma: a disgusting fishy creature with a black humor streak who is the mastermind behind the most wicked reality entertainment empire in the universe.
Number 5 brainwashes humans, commanding them to dance and perform for him in a most humiliating fashion, and then exterminates them--on camera. Not only that, but he's got a grand plan to take over the small town of Holliswood by using the citizens as the perfect incubators for the massive propagation of his species. Daniel faces not only a whole battalion of slimy creatures working for #5 in his attempts to thwart the plan, but also must find a way to conquer #5's eerily evasive skill of electronic invasion.
Reaching new heights of outrageousness, this far-out and funny adventure will take Patterson fans where they've never gone before!
