Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Bob Mayer writing as Robert Doherty: Now we know what the government hid there. It's time we found out why....
Hidden deep in the Amazon rain forest is a place shrouded in mystery. It is called The Mission. And in nearby villages people are screaming in pain as they die from a virus more deadly than Ebola. They can't escape it. They can't cure it. They can't stop it from exploding into a worldwide epidemic poised to kill us all....
Scientist Lisa Duncan and Special Forces Officer Mike Turcotte suspect this new "Black Death" is actually a biological weapon in an escalating war between us...and "them".
Them? The aliens who are part of a chilling conspiracy connected to ancient riddles, a covert government agency...and Area 51. Now from the Great Wall of China to a top-secret facility beneath Antarctica's ice cap, an eclectic group of soldiers and scholars are working with Duncan and Turcotte to give humankind one last shimmering hope to survive. To stop the aliens - at least until the Pandora's box of Area 51 opens up again....

Critic Reviews

"This third volume in Doherty's ongoing chronicle of human-alien clandestine warfare should appeal to fans of UFOs, conspiracy theories, and 'ancient astronauts'." ( Library Journal)

Adrenal Pace

Would you consider the audio edition of Area 51: the Mission to be better than the print version?

The reader's performance is competent if not excellent, considering the number of voices, male and female as well as accents that must be incorporated into the story. Well done here!

Who was your favorite character and why?

The alien "helper" characters are the best because we're not quite sure they're on our side and they have individual personalities rather than the stereotypical "submit or be absorbed" type thing.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not particularly, although I find any selfless sacrifice of life to be moving and there are several of those moments in this book.

Any additional comments?

Fast paced, grabs you IMMEDIATELY and does not let go... might lighten up on the grip a bit but definitely does not let go.

Getting better with both narration and suspense

The author has improved the tightness of the story and improved the writing style.
I can't believe am listening to the 3rd book. Its actually good.

Narration has improved, although not upto standards set by Ray Porter.
Sometimes find it difficult to differentiate characters since same type of narration and accent is used.

The story is now complex and contains more depth.

Well done.
