Format: Paperback
Redfern always does a good job of separating fact from fiction, of asking rather than concluding, and stimulating the mind of the reader. Unlike most other "alternative explanation" writers, he doesn't specialize in a given area. So when you pick up one of his books, you don't know what you're going to read. But you do know it's going to be good.

One problem with "alternative explanation" writers is they usually are trying to persuade the reader of an alternative explanation based on scant evidence and thin logic. That's not Redfern's style. One of the hallmarks of a good writer other than an op-ed writer is you can't tell what the writer's opinion is. The writer's viewpoint isn't apparent in the text, and the reader reaches his/her own conclusions.

That is not to say Redfern never draws conclusions. If certain facts don't fit, he'll point this out. If a conclusion suggested by someone else (whether an official explanation or a conspiracy theory) doesn't fly, he'll explain why.

Redfern also digs up facts surrounding a particular issue, and he digs up a lot of facts. His bibliographies tend to be disproportionate to the body of the text, and this book is yet another example of that bibliography on steroids thing he does. For this size book, on these topics, I think a bibliography of 6 to 8 pages would be reasonable. The actual size? 23 pages. Some of these are dubious (e.g., New York Times), and others are more authoritative (e.g., [...]

The premise of this book is exactly what the title and subtitle suggest. The top secret places include Area 51, Hangar 18, HAARP, and Fort Detrick. Not making it on the list is the Men's Room on the top floor of the Treasury Department, but I guess we can let that one slide.

Format: Paperback
You can always count of Nick Redfern for some quality conspiracy literature. He's a recognized expert in areas of UFOs, Bigfoot, conspiracies, and other unsolved mysteries. His books have run the gamut from alien abduction to exposes on the infamous `Men in Black' to the search for elusive creatures hidden in various environments around the world. In his latest book, KEEP OUT! TOP SECRET PLACES GOVERNMENTS DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT, he serves up a virtual smorgasbord of `whose-its' and `what's-its' that makes the world of the paranormal so compelling for its readers.

Several of the locations explored here have been covered to greater explanation elsewhere - such as Nevada's ultimate secret base, Area 51 - and one could make the strong argument that many of them are ripe enough for an entire book instead of serving only as fodder for an individual chapter in KEEP OUT! But that's the nature of the book - provide the reader with a functional overview of significant details and then push on to the next mystery. These are summaries - as the book's subtitle clearly indicates - so don't look for exhaustive detail. However, if you want a concise snapshot of the public history for Area 51 or Wright-Patterson Air Force Base or even Royal Air Force Base at Bentwaters-Woodbridge, then you can find them covered here. Also, Redfern provides terrific context for the reader to capture the gist of the central mystery surrounding each of the secured locations, and that alone is the greatest service he offers with this release: here are the fine points, but, if you want to know more, you may need to go elsewhere. For those inclined, he provides ample citations in the bibliography.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not what I expected. The tone is inconsistent, partly factual and sometimes downplaying mythical and fantastic stories while other times sensationalizing them and seemingly suggesting they're possibly (or even likely) true. If you listen to Art Bell and believe everything his guests have to say you'll probably love this book. If you are more of a fact-based thinker it will probably be a disappointment.

Format: Paperback
When a government agency tells an investigative reporter like Nick Redfern to "keep out," you can bet that order only makes him dig all the more to find out why people are supposed to stay away from those secret locations. How many high security facilities exist above ground, underground, and beneath the sea? Everyone knows that Area 51 exists--but what is really going on in that highly guarded base? Reverse engineering of alien spacecraft? And what about Dulce? Did our special ops fight aliens toe-to-toe to the death? Is there really a Hanger 18 with alien bodies from Roswell and other top-secret crashes? And Montauk! We've all heard totally wild tales about what went on there. Is there even a base on Montauk? Or are all those stories about missing children and Bigfoot like monsters just so much baloney? This is a fascinating book and only someone like Nick Redfern would have the persistence to track down the wacky tales and separate as much truth as possible from all the fiction and the spooky claims. Brad Steiger, coauthor of Real Aliens, Space Beings, and Creatures from Other Worlds.
