Fade-Out is the first book by Patrick Tilley that I have read, so I wasn't sure what to expect.

Fade-Out is the first book by Patrick Tilley that I have read, so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was a well written thriller about first contact with aliens. This book is a standalone. It tells the story of our first contact with aliens. What struck me then and now as I read the book is that the aliens and their intentions remain completely obscured.

Maybe he was floundering down there like a wounded whale, surrounded by a ring of explosive harpoons. misjudged the strength of his construction.

Enjoyed the story mainly got cause my paperback fell apart. The ending is abrupt no conclusion just ends that's it! If there is a sequel I'd sure like to know what happens next that ending really annoys me!

Great first contact plot but cold war plot dated.

Fade Out has been, and still is, one of my all-time favourite books.
I read this book as a school kid and have re-read it now to revisit an 'old friend'... Crusoe, the main protagonist of this novel.
Amazingly, this novel hasn't really 'dated' after all the time that has passed since it was written, with the exception of the Cold War suspicions that both the American and the Russian characters display toward each other. But, if viewed as an historic 'event' the storyline is a fresh science fiction concept that would translate very well to film.

Loved the Amtrak Wars series, but unfortunately this doesn’t come close. Finished the book and still waiting for something to happen. Feels like a 300 page introduction

I first read this book about ten years ago after having read Mission and loving it. The Author teases you into the story by making it sound so plausible, so every day. You could almost imagine seeing an article on one of the wire services about a problem with Radars around the world, that lasted a few minutes then faded away.

Like so many things in life, we tend not to give the little things enough attention, and by implication, we allow them power over us.

That is what Fade Out is to me, a reminder to always be vigilant.

Thank you for a great book, that has stood the test of time, would make a great movie - hint hint..

Story is outstanding except the ending leaves the reader hanging for a conclusive ending. Good character development, suspenseful plot and a very interesting story. Begs for a sequel and a movie.

I bought this book because I enjoyed his book "Mission" but couldnt get into it.
Started out great ... good suspense ... ended a little disappointing ..
