When Derek White captures footage of a desert firefight between the Air Force and a pair of UFOs, his becomes the evidence the world has awaited.
Confirmation of extraterrestrial life, it's the type of proof that's dangerous in the wrong hands and revolutionary in the right ones. Many would give their lives to protect Derek's recording; more would kill to destroy it.
As Derek uncovers a vast government conspiracy, the Men in Black dismantle his life from the inside out. With his sanity at stake, he's forced to seek the enigmatic Mr. Majestic, the one person who can provide a full disclosure of the truth. Except to find Majestic, he must break into a covert military installation.
Outsiders call the place Area 51.
But insiders know it as Dreamland.

Dreamland by Jared Sandman focuses on Derek White, a recovering alcoholic (three months sober) who also happens to be a local, late night radio talk show host. On the way home from an AA meeting, he experiences what can only be described as a close encounter of the second kind. He witnesses and has photographic and video evidence of this encounter.  The next day he is visited by the “Men-In-Black” and told to keep quiet about what he saw the previous night, not even to tell his wife. He then proceeds to completely ignore their “suggestion” by not only going back to the sight to look for more evidence but also to talk about it on his radio program. Needless to say the MIB were not very happy with that and this is where the story really takes off. I won’t say it was a fun read because there are many negative things that happen to our protagonist, but it was a fast paced thriller with many excellent moments. I really enjoyed the storyline and the main character and those around him were well written.  I don’t want to give away any more of the plot developments but let’s just say there are a couple pretty good twists and turns that happen as the story progresses. I found it to be an enjoyable story that I just didn’t want to put down. If you are looking for a good, quick read this summer and you like UFO’s, then this one is for you.
