Bob Mayer (AKA Robert Doherty AKA Greg Donegan AKA Joe Dalton AKA Bob McGuire) is truly one of the more masterful newcomers to the sci-fi genre in many, many years. Intermingling sci-fi with edgy military techo-thriller action, Mayer weaves some of the most enjoyable and imaginative fiction I've ever read with each novel. I look forward to every book he writes and have yet to be disappointed. The Area 51 series has been one of the most exciting I've ever read and just when I thought it couldn't get any better, along came the Atlantis series, which is equally as good, if not better.
For those in the know about government secrecy on UFOs and the various black projects and secret operations that they have undertaken over the years, you'll find that Mayer truly did his homework on this series. Mayer name-drops numerous actual military projects from Operation: Paperclip to Project Aquarius as bits and pieces of a puzzle that the government has been piecing together since the accidental discovery of an alien mothership hidden in the Nevada mountains so many years ago.
From clues hidden in the most remote locations on Earth for thousands of years to new discoveries on the Martian landscape, the complex story continues to unravel the true origin of humankind and each subsequent saga is more fascinating than the last. Being a special forces trainer himself, the attention to detail as far as the military aspect in Mayer's stories is phenomenal as well. Bob Mayer is very quickly making a name for himself as one of the finest action authors of the modern age.
If the Area 51 series intriques you, be sure not to miss his Atlantis series (under the Donegan pen name) and his military thrillers such as The Omega Missile (Dalton pen name), The Gate (McGuire pen name) and Psychic Warrior (Doherty pen name). All smashingly good reads!!

This book is a compelling tale built on a conglomeration of some of the world's most fascinating mysteries and conspiracies . Those interested in UFOs and government secrets will have no trouble understanding the basic premises, but readers without such a background may have trouble immersing themselves in the story. In this novel, Majic-12 is the group of individuals working inside the secret government to oversee all matters of alien technology, specifically the one mother ship and nine UFOs which have been found and stashed away at Area 51 in Nevada. The leader of the group, Gullick, is determined to undertake a test flight of the mothership within the next four days, despite the fact that no one knows how to control it or how it works. Von Seeckt, a transplanted German scientist "acquired" by the U.S. in 1942 after taking part in a secret Nazi SS mission that entered the bottom chamber of the Great Pyramid in Egypt (years before the chamber was officially discovered) and took possession of a mysterious, important black box housed in the sealed sarcophagus, is convinced that a flight of the mothership will bring disaster to earth, but Gullick ignores his concerns. The President has sent his scientific advisor, Dr. Lisa Duncan, to join Majic-12 and find out what is really going on, and she in turn has recruited a Special Forces operative named Turcotte as a mole within Area 51. Meanwhile, a Brooklyn scientist has managed to decipher some of the prehistorical high runes found in the Great Pyramid, among Mesoamerican ruins, and on Easter Island. The scientist eventually joins forces with Von Seeckt, Duncan, Turcotte, and a freelance reporter, and the group embarks on a mission to save mankind from an unknown catastrophe.Read more ›

I've read the first four books of this series and while I find it a good read and nice escapist fantasy, it does tend to drag a bit in parts--too many long explanations on the same subject in each book, cardboard characters and minor, yet noticeable, oversights (Captain Turcotte becomes Major Turcotte then Captain Turcotte again). On the other hand Doherty does manage to break up the seemingly constant downturns (the aliens and their Earthbound agents seeming to get the upperhand, for example) with small but significant triumphs. All in all it's a really fun read, and if you're not looking for more than that, these books are for you.

Ok, so Area51 isn't great literature, but that doesn't mean it's worthless. Sure I've read books with better plotting and writing, but that's not what I expected when I picked up this book. It was a great escape and a very fun ride. It's not meant to reveal anything grand or tell you something didn't already know. It's simply entertainment and there's nothing wrong with that. I stayed up late to finish the book because I couldn't put it down and now I want to read the rest of the series. Sometimes it's fun to just read something that won't broaden your horizons or change your life. I recommend this book for those who want something to read on a plane or on the beach. It's light reading at its best.

Doherty has managed to tie together just about every aspect of UFOlogy from abductions to crop circles to the Great Pyramid of Giza to the statues on Easter Island in a coherent tale. Even if you don't have much interest in this topic I recommend this book simply because it's a fun, fast paced story. Then go and get the sequel, AREA 51 THE REPLY. Can't wait for publication of AREA 51 THE MISSION next March. In the author interview it says that Doherty is the pen name for Bob Mayer. Checked out some of his books-- interesting also and much more down to Earth in his special forces series-- he was a former green beret. If you like this book, you might want to read any of the six books in that series-- try Dragon Sim-13, Eternity Base, or Cut Out. This is action with a realistic edge from someone who's been there.
