The book came in mint condition, without the spine being cracked.
It appeared to be brand new, with an original price tag when the book was originally sold...if only the price was the same.
My girlfriend was very pleased, and it really made me feel good to see her so happy....it always does!
Turnabout is somewhat better than Pursuit and attempts to bring closure to the series, but it is not perfect. It takes up where Pursuit leaves off. Max and his friends almost get nabbed in a mall in Cheyenne, Wyoming by the Special Unit, while the dupes are taken by the unit in New York and flown by plane to Los Angeles. Meanwhile the Special Unit take the Parkers and the Evans ( which is caught on Evans’ nanny cam and Brody’s CCTV) in Roswell , but Deputy Valenti and Amy DeLuca barely get away and head for Laurie Dupree home in Arizona. Brody locks himself away in the UFO museum. Rath and Lonnie get away at airport in Los Angeles, but Ava is taken to the Special Unit’s Headquarters in LA industrial district. Meanwhile Liz has a premonition that Isabel will be cut up by the Special unit in LA and so Max splits up the group sending Kyle and Isabel to Jesse in Boston, while the rest of the group take the minibus to Hollywood to visit Kal Langley. Agent Duff (agent involved in Dupree’s kidnaping the year before) meets Valenti at Dupree’s home in Arizona. Rath has second thoughts about leaving Ava in the hands of the Special Unit and so he and Lonnie break into Headquarter to get Ava out. They succeed but in doing so leave Lonnie behind. Meanwhile Kyle, who becomes a cross county telepath with party line capabilities, saves Isabel from the skins and Kivar, and set up a telepathic link between Isabel and Jesse. Jesse and a lawyer friend of the Parker’s, Shelby are on a private jet paid for by Brody to see Langley about a plain thought up by Phillip Evans to out Max and his friends and expose the Special Unit illegal activities. Kyle telepaths his father, and Valenti and Duff head for Langley in LA. Finally the group get together at Langley and using the black pentagonal alien tracker witness the death of Lonnie by the Special Unit. They decide it is time to move against the Special Unit’s Headquarters. Max gentle persuasion fails, but alien newscaster trucks surround the Headquarter. Rath and Ava comes back to Headquarters to save Lonnie, but discovers she is dead. In a rage, Rath goes after the Special Unit with his powers, and is gunned down. However Rath’s actions allows Max and his friends to escape to the Medical Unit room in Headquarters where they barricade themselves in. Max, Langley, Ava, Kyle and Isabel launch a psionic bomb via the telepathic hotline and the black pentagon device erasing all evidence of the Special Unit and their memories of Max and his friends. Turnabout ends with Max and Liz getting married (again ) in Roswell, Langley get Michael into the movie industry and Maria into singing her own songs, Isabel and Jesse go back to Boston, Valenti purposes to Amy while Kyle and Ava get together.
A lot of questions are answered in the book, but as to whether this is the end, the Special Unit seems to have more lives than a cat. There are still plenty of aliens living here on Earth among us. Kivar has yet to be deterred even though Langley psionic bomb destroyed all of the alien tracker (black pentagonal devices) over the globe. Certainly Max and Liz would be easy to find in Roswell and even if they go somewhere else their parental units still live there. Michael as an actor in Hollywood would not be hard to find and Jesse’s law firm in Boston would not be hard to find either. One reviewer asked why Max did not feel a moral obligation to go back to Antar to free his people. He apparently was much of a leader while he was there and even if he and his friends could hitch a ride home assuming their human longevity was enough to make the trip, they could not necessarily count on anyone’s support once there.
