Undocumented Visitors in a Pirate Sea: An Investigation of Certain Caribbean Phenomena by Dr. Thayer Harris is a stunning UFO story that was researched and written by Jeffrey Roswell McCord. Harris is a maritime history professor living in the US Virgin Islands with his wife and son. They lead pleasant lives, living on a remote mountain, sailing the waters, and snorkeling on his days off. Harris is approached one day by a naval officer and asked to investigate the recent death by drowning of a veteran who had last been seen on a floating bar/ship on a night when unexplained lights were seen by a number of witnesses. Harris is asked to keep his investigation secret and is given a cover project about the Bay of Pigs and a direct, encrypted line to his naval employer. As part of his investigation, he interviews a number of local residents who were witnesses to the event. Harris also discovers a vast amount of documented evidence and reports on UFOs on the internet.

I loved every minute I spent reading Undocumented Visitors in a Pirate Sea. Don't let the somewhat dry title fool you, author Jeffrey Roswell McCord and character Thayer Harris make reading about Harris's investigations fascinating, with plenty of historical links which also proved to be fine reading. Unlike most books filled with lots of footnotes, Undocumented Visitors is great science/speculative fiction that will also appeal to fans of action/adventure novels and sea adventure yarns. Add a healthy dose of history and pages detailing sailing and snorkeling in the gorgeous waters of the Caribbean, and who could ask for more? This is such an entertaining and cool book, and McCord has left the story-door open for a sequel. I certainly hope to see one soon.
