"The Book of Truths," by Bob Mayer

Action and adventure from NYT bestselling author Bob Mayer!

The Book of Truths (Area 51: The Nightstalkers, Book Two), by Bob Mayer

"I've come to await Bob Mayer's releases anxiously, especially his Nightstalkers/Area 51 series. I'm never disappointed, as Mayer has a rare storytelling gift. His pacing is taut and nicely plot-linked. His characters are never cardboard. Even his villains -- at least those of them that are human -- are absorbing, identifiable and compelling. The concepts he presents are plausible and filled with unanswered questions to tantalize the reader. With The Book of Truths, however; he's turned his own genre on its ear and raised the bar to an entirely new level.

He has always investigated the intelligence artifacts and internal motivations that follow special services operatives, but for the first time, he has broached some possibilities that are deeply disturbing, rising from the clandestine nature of our nuclear weapons past as well as from the nature of command itself. The threats that arise are chilling, and very believable. 

Bob Mayer shines the light of speculative military fiction upon our inheritance from the Cold War era. This important book gave me a great deal to think about. If you have an interest in politics, military intrigue and the recent past or if you are just trying to find an entertaining read that will kick your brain into high gear, this book will do all those jobs and more."

-- Amazon reviewer

Building off the world first seen in Bob Mayer’s Area 51 novels, the Nightstalkers series explores a new covert force dedicated to moving unseen in their fight against the unknown.
A little truth is a dangerous thing.
A lot could kill us all.
The Nightstalkers are back, and the world needs them now more than ever.
When a real-life truth serum, an unauthorized military cabal, and the nuclear football—which contains the authorization the President needs to launch the nation’s missiles—all converge, the Nightstalkers suit up for another deadly job. Joining forces with the Cellar, the covert world’s police force, the team might be mankind’s last hope.
With the President infected by an out-of-control pathogen, the Nightstalkers’ primary mission becomes finding a hidden stash of nuclear missiles before a secret group can launch a pre-emptive strike against America’s enemies. Because a rogue general has taken control of the operation center beneath the White House, and all hell’s about to break loose.
The Book of Truths builds and builds before roaring to a breathless showdown that could mean the beginning of the end for everyone.

Meet the Author

West Point Graduate, former Green Beret and NY Times bestselling author Bob Mayer has had over 50 books published. He has sold over five million books, and is in demand as a team-building, life-changing, and leadership speaker and consultant for his Who Dares Wins concept.

He's been on bestseller lists in thriller, science fiction, suspense, action, war, historical fiction and is the only male author on the Romance Writers of America Honor Roll.

Born in the Bronx, Bob attended West Point and earned a BA in psychology with honors and then served as an Infantry platoon leader, a battalion scout platoon leader, and a brigade recon platoon leader in the 1st Cavalry Division. He joined Special Forces and commanded a Green Beret A Team. He served as the operations officer for 2nd Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) and with Special Operations Command (Special Projects) in Hawaii.

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. He has taught organizations ranging from Maui Writers, to Whidbey Island Writers, to San Diego State University, to the University of Georgia, to the Romance Writers of America National Convention, to Boston SWAT, the CIA, Fortune-500, the Royal Danish Navy Frogman Corps, Microsoft, Rotary, IT Teams in Silicon Valley and many others.
