About the Author

NY Times bestselling author Bob Mayer has had over 50 books published. He has sold over four million books, and is in demand as a team-building, life-changing, and leadership speaker and consultant for his Who Dares Wins: The Green Beret Way concept. He is also the Co-Creator of Cool Gus Publishing.

Bob Mayer grew up in the Bronx. After high school, he entered West Point where he learned about the history of our military and our country. During his four years at the Academy and later in the Infantry, Mayer questioned the idea of "mission over men." When he volunteered and passed selection for the Special Forces as a Green Beret, he felt more at ease where the men were more important than the mission.
Mayer's obsession with mythology and his vast knowledge of the military and Special Forces, mixed with his strong desire to learn from history, is the foundation for his science fiction series Atlantis, Area 51 and Psychic Warrior. Mayer is a master at blending elements of truth into all of his thrillers, leaving the reader questioning what is real and what isn't.

He took this same passion and created thrillers based in fact and riddled with possibilities. His unique background in the Special Forces gives the reader a sense of authenticity and creates a reality that makes the reader wonder where fact ends and fiction begins.

In his historical fiction novels, Mayer blends actual events with fictional characters. He doesn't change history, but instead changes how history came into being.
Mayer's military background, coupled with his deep desire to understand the past and how it affects our future, gives his writing a rich flavor not to be missed.

Bob has presented for over a thousand organizations both in the United States and internationally, including keynote presentations, all day workshops, and multi-day seminars. For more information see bobmayer.org and coolgus.com

This is the first book I've read written by Bob Mayer. I might read more if this becomes a series. Horace Chase is a federal liaison with the Boulder Police Department. He is investigating a murder but also involved in a black ops assignment involving a militia group. I found the flawed characters interesting. I enjoyed the twists and turns in the story, but I felt the ending was too contrived. However, I would be willing to try another Bob Mayer novel. I received a copy of this in exchange for my review.

This is a complex story, and it was fascinating to see it develop. It is a mystery/thriller, but not just that; there's a boatload of excellent writing going on here, leading the reader through paths and concepts which just aren't expected in an everyday thriller. The characters are wonderfully developed and flawed but don't become caricatured by their flaws. When I got to the end of the book, I felt as if I'd been surfing an avalanche and survived. This is one of the best books I've read recently.

Chasing the Ghost is a tight,fast moving action/mystery...just the kind of story Mayer does best. I read it in two nights because I couldn't put it down.

This one has so many plot twist and surprises, it will keep you up trying to finish another chapter. It's different from Mayer's regular story lines. Think James Patterson and Brad Thor co-writting the sequel to Demile's "The Generals Daughter"! Somehow Mayer is able to make it his own and make it a great read. Looking foward to more of Federal Liason Horace Chase.

This is the first time I have read a Bob Mayer book but will not be the last. I am going to purchase every single one of his books in the "Black Ops" series today.

In the few reviews I have written, I never give any details about the book because I do not want to spoil anything for anyone. You can read the authors description about the book and get a very accurate picture of what the book is about. With that said, purchase this book. I started reading it this past weekend and finished it last night. I read the book in three evenings instead of watching my favorite television shows. Good thing for DVR.

The story takes place in Boulder Colorado. Considering my family enjoys going to Boulder and the surrounding area and knowing Boulder like we do, the author made me feel like I was actually there with the vivid descriptions. I could picture myself driving the same streets and seeing the same sights as he was writing about. The author was also able to give each character incredible depth and background.

I am a mystery/thriller fan and this book did not disappoint in any way.

Didn't even get halfway through this. Just boring. Two unneccesary sex scenes did nothing to advance the story line at all.

Along with the numerous problems with spelling and syntax that others have mentioned this also relied on the tired cliche of numerous crimes all being connected in the end. It also featured another of my pet peeves, in which someone uses a silenced revolver. The only way to silence a revolver is to build a shroud over it to contain the gases escaping the cylinder. One would think that a former Green Beret would know guns better.
