About the Author
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

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.
