"Captured by Kathleen Marden and the late Stanton Friedman
is passionate and specific. Their initial investigation has now

"Captured! describes how, in 1961, extraterrestrials interfered with the lives of Barney and Betty Hill by first abducting them into a UFO that had landed in rural New Hampshire, and then examining them--just the way we humans would study captured members of a new species. The book was written by the late Stanton Friedman, a physicist who was also a pioneer UFO investigator, and Kathleen Marden, Betty Hill's niece, who continues to study and describe the reality of ET presence and ET interference in human lives. For well-understood reasons, people with power and influence would prefer to ignore the evidence in Captured! My advice is: read Captured! and don't ignore the evidence."

"Captured! fills in many of the inevitable gaps in our knowledge of the famous Betty and Barney Hill case, and is therefore a must for anyone interested in the remarkable gestation period of UFO abduction research."
--Budd Hopkins, World-renowned UFO abduction researcher, author of Witnessed and Missing Time
"With the publication of this book, the skeptics' 'wiggle room' has shrunk to zero. No longer can they get away with ignoring or minimizing the importance of various details in order to claim they merely saw a light. Instead, the Hills' story still stands as a strong reminder that we can't explain everything that happens."
--Dr. Bruce Maccabbee, author of Abduction In My Life
"At a time when films of US Navy jets chasing UFOs are being declassified, and when it has been revealed that a secret Pentagon program studied the 'human interface and human effects' aspects of UFO encounters, the abduction phenomenon is being looked at with fresh eyes. Captured! takes us back to the phenomenon's 'ground zero' and gives readers the inside story of the case that would first bring the alien abduction mystery to the attention of the world."
--Nick Pope, UK Ministry of Defense (Ret.)
"Kathleen Marden is not only the niece of Betty and Barney Hill but is one of the leading UFO researchers of our time. Her collaboration with the legendary researcher Stanton Friedman has resulted in the definitive work on the most important UFO abduction case of the twentieth century."
--Richard Dolan, author of UFOS and the National Security State
