From New York Times best-selling author Bob Mayer, writing as Robert Doherty....
Deep in the Nevada desert is the most secure compound in the United States: Area 51.
The most chilling experiment of all time is about to begin there. The President doesn’t know about it. Just a few scientists and military personnel working for Majestic-12 do, and they are about to make a very big mistake....
Former Green Beret Mike Turcotte, assigned to Nightscape, security for Area 51, begins to realize things aren’t as they seem. Deep inside the Great Pyramid in Giza, an archeologist makes a startling discovery in the lowest chamber. On Easter Island, what are the giant statues guarding? What was Thule and why were the Nazis so intent on finding it during World War II? What are the strange stones off the coast of Bimini? All these clues and more add up to a frightening countdown that could bring about the end of our planet. Turcotte and Presidential Science Adviser Lisa Duncan must race against time to save the world from the secret hidden at Area 51.
Over 1.5 Million copies of Area 51 sold—also author of the best-selling Atlantis series.

Praise for Bob Mayer: "Spell-binding! Will keep you on the edge of your seat. Call it techno-thriller, call it science fiction, call it just terrific story-telling.” (Terry Brooks, best-selling author of the Shannara series and Star Wars: Phantom Menace)
The book takes off right from the start. Overall there was no down time or long introductions for the characters. Instead you get the basics and learn as the story moves along. The book was nonstop and continued a consistent flow while maintaining ones interest the entire time.
Throughout the book, there were so many references to actual places and actual events throughout history at times I wonder if this was a documentary.
I will admit I have a question or two about the ending, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed the book and the narration.
I loved this book! It was the first one in a long time that I wanted to listen to all the way through. The author blends all the story lines of Ancient Aliens, UFOs, conspiracies, Ancient pyramids, and similar theories into a cohesive and well though out story. The characters are likeable. No silly romance side stories. It moves quickly but is easy to follow and actually makes a lot of sense. The main characters are diverse with an archeologist, journalist, special ops soldier, old Nazi scientist, presidential aide all coming together to form a team to solve the mystery. Excellent narration. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes this type of book. I will listen to it again and again. Very enjoyable with a fast pace that never lags.
I read this series years ago and loved it. Listening to it again after so many years is awesome and hearing it read makes it even better!
I liked some of the imagined technology and how it interacts with government/military procedures.
Not really. The characters are stock, the action predictable.
It's not BAD, just not very interesting.
At first, I didn't think this was going to be my "cup of tea," but as the story advanced, I found myself more and more interested. If you'd asked me after my first 3 or 4 hours of listening, I would have told you I don't intend to download the second book. Now I'm adding it to my wishlist.
Nazis, Aliens, ancient Egypt and area 51, oh my! had to listen on premise alone. predictable but well put together story. fast pace and good for a weekend vacation drive. not a waste of time, but a OK way to waste some time. if it were a movie I'd give it 7/10
Yes I would, the book was interesting, it made me wonder if stuff like this was really going on.
I like that the book incorporated stories that we hear about today. We have all heard about Atlantis and we know there is an Area 51. So it just put different thoughts in my head..
I am not sure who would have enjoyed this, just not myself .
I think the narrator was very good.
Maybe the reporter...
