Item description for Black Harvest by Josh Howard...
In the small town of Jericho, Texas, a yearly phenomenon known as the Jericho Lights brings tourists and UFO enthusiasts from miles around. Although the true cause of the mysterious lights remains a mystery, they've become a deeply rooted part of Jericho's history. The return of 19-year-old Zaya Vahn, who mysteriously vanished nearly three years ago, throws the small rural town into chaos when it becomes clear that she is not the girl she once was, with the word "Repent" cryptically etched into her skin. Caught in the middle is internet blogger Daniel Webster, who has traveled to Jericho to uncover the truth about the Lights. But the real story he uncovers is bigger than he ever imagined.

Reviews - What do customers think about Black Harvest?
A bad end to a good story Dec 9, 2007
"Black Harvest" is set in a small Texas town where an annual display of mysterious lights has given it a Roswell-like following among UFO enthusiasts. When one investigative journalist (for an Internet blog) comes to town to take his own look at the phenomenon, be runs -- literally -- into a young woman who vanished three years before and now has returned under questionable circumstances.
The book by Josh Howard (of "Dead@17" fame) manages to create, through both its writing and its art, a spooky, X-Filesesque atmosphere that deals with aliens, widescale paranoia, secret organizations, cover-ups and unnatural pacts.
The book builds tension nicely, but be prepared for a letdown by the end. I enjoyed the journey -- Howard is a talented writer and artist, and he tells a good story -- but the destination is a disappointment. Questions go unanswered, the climax is a dramatic cop-out, and I closed the book thinking, "That's it?"
If you don't mind a flawed ending, however, most of this book is an enjoyable read.
