Aliens on Earth, people trying to find the truth about where we came from, that fairy-tale of a story spinning across millenia gives most unusual answers to eternal questions about mankind history - books like Area 51 is something which is needed to let our minds travel away from often harsh reality of today's life.
Really grateful to Bob Mayer for his imagination and talent!
For most of the volumes, this one included, the primary secret enemy is an alien race called the Airlia. They have been on the earth for some 10,000 years, happily manipulating human events to suit their own needs. In fact, it turns out that there are two groups of Airlia in conflict with each other. Moreover, as 'The Truth' reveals there are even more fish in the stew than the Airlia and their minions. It seems that every time this series uncovers an artifact - the Ark, the Grail, Excalibur, there is another alien race hiding underneath of it.
In this final volume, the series 'hero,' Mike Turcotte, and his band of cohorts must rush about, cleaning up loose ends, solving mysteries, and saving the Earth. Rushing about is a bit of an understatement, as Mike starts out on the top of Mount Everest, jumping to safety, and ends on Mars with a final struggle to stop the Airlia (and others) from phoning home and asking for help. In between are the obligatory stops to Area 51, Stonehenge, and the Gulf of Mexico. Yes, 'The Truth' does, grudgingly, part with the truth - the last piece of the puzzle. But this is an anti-climax after all the thundering action that goes before.
In something this action oriented, it would be foolish to expect a lot of character development. In fact, Doherty spends the time to create good two-dimensional characters, and that is much more than many other authors in this genre feel obliged to provide. The only thing that has ever really irritated me about this series is that Doherty's narrative has a habit of jumping around in space and time. I have a reasonable tolerance for the chaos of a flashback driven narrative, but after seven volumes, this particular plot device wears a bit thin. Be warned that this series needs to be read in order it is going to make a lot of sense. Fortunately, it is well written enough to be enjoyable throughout.
