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)
I'm a voracious audiobook listener, rarely found without my iPod.
I’m not sure why, but I never got into this one. I want to be fair and say I just wasn’t interested in the story line at this particular book, but honestly it just fell flat for me. I think that when you take on a topic that has been explored again and again, the onus is on you to differentiate yourself. I don’t feel like there was enough of a spark, whether it is character development or unique angel to the story to make this book stand out. This particular story will be appealing to fans of Clive Cussler or Lee Child, I suppose. I continued listening to the audiobook, but it just felt blah.
This story is narrated so immensely with current events, it feels so real. I'm wondering why no movie has been made out of this book. Definitely great book.
Could it be?
The reader was excellent with all of the voices. Story was edge-of-your-seat and un-nerving. Loved it!!
It could Happen!
The history in the story.
No first one but so far loving the reading.
Nothing really moved me but the overall story is great.
This book allows you to say what if.
I am about three quarters of the way through this book and I am sticking with it because I want to see how it ends. And..I have paid for it!! But the narrator is irritating the crap out of me!! He needs to go!
Please see above!
It's all pretty much the same. All the characters sound the same. Even the German scientist has the same voice as all the others except for a cheesy German accent which slowly disappears over the course of the first few chapters and then continues to make surprise re-appearances randomly through the rest of the book but not every time the scientist speaks!!He sounds like one of those announcers who love the sound of their own voice. I DON'T love it.
A moot point really. There already is one!
I like the concept of the story and under other circumstances would be interested in follow up books. However, I notice that the follow ups listed by Audible are also read by Jeffrey Kafer. So I will pass.
