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.

10 hours of setup for a sequel

Would you try another book from Bob Mayer and Robert Doherty and/or Jeffrey Kafer?


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Didn't even come close to the setup.

Did Area 51 inspire you to do anything?

Not buy another book from him.

Any additional comments?

There are many threads being pulled together to weave this story. Although they all worked from a plot perspective, the story was unsatisfying. There were hours and hours of setup, the sort of thing that usually happens in the first third of a book, only here it was the entire novel. There were no surprises, just a hash of all the expected "woo" elements: Nazis, pyramids, UFOs, Atlantis, ancient runes, government coverups, etc. Maybe the author wanted to connect every fringe theory on the internet in one story, thereby getting all the niche markets at once.

In the end, it was mostly there as a setup for the sequel.

Interesting Explanations For Conspiracies

Any additional comments?

I actually enjoyed the book quite a bit. It has some very bizarre ideas but I think that they are connected fairly well. There are a few loopholes but I think that the book was well worth the money and time. It will be interesting to see hoe the rest of the series plays out.
