Le journaliste-enquÃªteur Christian R. Page nous entraÃ®ne dans les sillons de faits inexpliquÃ©s et Ã©tranges. Il fouille les archives, les dossiers de la police, interroge les principaux tÃ©moins, les autoritÃ©s, les experts et, chemin faisant, nous fait partager ses Ã©motions, ses doutes, ses questionnements et son espoir d'en arriver Ã une juste comprÃ©hension. Ses conclusions sont Ã©clairantes, solides et souvent stupÃ©fiantes. Parmi ses investigations, le cas des pilotes de la British Airways qui, en 1995, croisent dans le ciel un objet volant non identifiÃ©, le mystÃ¨re de la Sainte Lance, qui aurait perforÃ© le corps du Christ crucifiÃ©, et les Â« sensitifs Â», ces mÃ©diums qui collaborent avec les policiers dans des enquÃªtes criminelles. Les chapitres sont regroupÃ©s sous cinq grands thÃ¨mes : Â« Contacts avec l'au-delÃ Â», Â« Voyageurs de l'espace Â», Â« Inexplicable et PSI Â», Â« CrÃ©atures de l'ombre Â» et Â« MystÃ¨res historiques Â».
