An alien saucer crashes in the Utah foothills. Reports of its fiery demise draw David Vincent, even after flyovers by Air Force jets failed to locate the site of the mysterious fireball. Vincent soon discovers Gale Frazer, who has helped the craft's only survivor, Blake. Frazer, sick of war after serving in Vietnam, believes Blake's people are peaceful. David must gain her trust and convince her that Blake's mission is not peaceful. That is complicated by the arrival of Sawyer and Lavin, who have come to collect the box Blake's craft brought to Earth.



David's friend Charlie Gilman stands accused of murdering Fred Wilk, and district attorney Slater's determined to convict. But David knows Wilk's was an invader - and if necessary, he'll use that to help his defence. David sets a man to research Slater's background, and the man turns up evidence that part of the background was faked - and Slater's an invader as well.

David and the Believers are trying to get a powerful publisher, William Mace, on their side. They have competition in Eric Lund, who heads the task force seeking to purchase a controlling interest in Mace's publishing empire. If David and Edgar Scoville cannot persuade Mace to their cause, Lund will gain control - a disaster, since Lund is an alien.

In the scuffle, Kramer dies and David has to go on the run with the key data.David does the only thing he can; he sells out to the aliens, offering them details of the jamming process in exchange for an important place in the invaders new leadership of humanity.

Julian Reed has apparently gone barking mad. He's seeing aliens everywhere, and finally has a public breakdown resulting in confinement to a psychiatric facility. David Vincent comes to investigate, and must decide whether Reed is really mad, or if the Invaders actually have infiltrated Reed's place of employment, the highly secret Slaton Research Center. When Julian Reed accuses David himself of being an alien, and when David's wife Pat seems reluctant to even see her own husband, David doesn't know how to proceed. Until a chance encounter between a dog and one of the guards at Slaton reveals that at least one alien has found his way into the organization.

David and Mike Calvin board a ship in search of several crates that contain "wreckage" that rained down from the sky - the pieces of a crashed saucer! But the crates are gone; the aliens got to them first. The aliens also took a large shipment of heroin destined for "The Organization" - an organized crime ring run by Peter Kalter. Kalter wants his shipment back and he's willing to kill to get it. But if David can convince him that the Invaders are here, he might gain a powerful, if ruthless and unpredictable, ally. On the other hand, others in the Organization simply want their drugs back, even if they have to sell out the human race to get them.

Concannon sees the second alien blaze up, and is convinced. But he wants to meet with the alien leaders to see if a peaceful solution is possible. He sends David and several generals to an isolated farmhouse, and David arranges for several alien leaders to attend. But Concannon solves problems with violence, and he's going to solve this one by dropping a large bomb on the aliens, David, and his own men! The alien retaliation is likely to be ferocious, and the loss of life high, unless David can stop Concannon!
David and Edgar intercept an alien data drop and recover the partially burned contents of a briefcase. A picture inside convinces them that Arnold Warren is an alien. Warren is seeking confirmation to a post supervising a space tracking project. He would be one of the few black men to hold such a high post. Standing between him and that goal is Jim Baxter, a Senate investigator who also happens to be black. Baxter's wife Celia wants black heroes for her son, so she's pressuring her husband to recommend Warren. Against that, David Vincent only has a wildly implausible story: that Warren is a man from outer space! Convincing Baxter to look further means appealing to his policeman's instincts.

A roadblock's set up for the other 2 in the car which got away.,David's brought to the 2 aliens, who claim to disagree with the' plan to invade earth, and other aliens want to destroy them before they can get back to their planet and make the case against invasion. They persuade David to help them evade the police roadblock and get them to their spaceship safely.—
David is contacted by Anne Gibbs, an alien who is on the run from both her fellow aliens and humans. She is the undesired result of an attempt to mimic human behavior by creating emotion. It's been successful in part, as she now values her own life as well as those of humans, but in the process she frequently now loses control and becomes violent when even mildly angered, and has killed a woman in one of her outbursts. Still, she tells David she will come with him to Washington to tell officials everything she knows about the aliens' plans. But the aliens plan to kill her to stop her, and the husband of the woman she killed is also after her seeking revenge.
In Washington, a senator is killed by a bomb blast just after David and Edgar try unsuccessfully to convince him that a security advisor is an alien. A zealous and politically ambitious prosecuting attorney then plans to make a name for himself by indicting the members of the Believers for the murder, just as they are discovering that the aliens' grand plan to take over the earth and wipe out humanity is imminent.
