Publisher's Summary

The Grail is another knockout from New York Times best-selling author Bob Mayer writing as Robert Doherty.
The Holy Grail - is it the key to a miracle...or a terrifying truth? The Great Wall of China, the immense carvings on Easter Island, Egypt's pyramids, UFOs: What is the chilling connection? The answer, unearthed by an elite band of soldiers and scientists based at Area 51, is rewriting human history - to include the aliens who shaped it!
Now, in this heart-pounding novel, Area 51 personnel embark on a top-secret search for the Holy Grail, a glittering artifact with the power to save the world...or lead to its destruction.
Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte has paid his dues in battle and in blood. Now assigned to Area 51, he fights the toughest enemy of his career: the alien race who arrived on Earth millennia ago and have returned to claim the planet.
Mike has dodged bullets and faced weapons of mass destruction to give humanity another day of reprieve. But when his lover, scientist Lisa Duncan, falls into evil hands, Mike must decide which prize means the most to him - the woman he loves or the legendary Grail. It's a decision that could damn him...or damn us all.

Martin Gollery (Narrator) should be avoided!

At first, I thought that it was just me. I have listened to probably over 100 Audiobooks over the past couple of years and have enjoyed most of them greatly - but THIS book......let's just say that after the first few hours - I HAD to abandon the effort and purchase the book on Amazon to read on my Kindle.

Martin Gollery narrated this book. And the result was HORRIBLE. This is absolutely the worst audiobook experience of my life, and I was quite impressed with how badly a bad narrator could destroy the experience of an Audiobook. The Author's story/book are amazing - and it is really a "page turner".

But Gollery's destruction of the Audiobook experience is unforgivable - to the point that for the first time - I actually will pay attention to the Name of the Narrator and will REFUSE to buy any audiobook Narrated by Martin Gollery.

The narrative style of Martin Gollery is best described as an inhuman robot with tones and inflections of voice that are consistently irritating. Specifically, he inflects his voice down at the end of each and every sentence - much like how a priest recites a sermon in those boring Sunday sermons at church you used to be forced to attend, where the priest was simply reciting a passage that he was just trying to "get through" and which the parishioners pretended to listen to while being all lost in their own thoughts.

It is hard to completely describe how such a totally unskilled and careless narrator can completely destroy the Audiobook experience. I had friends listen to it as well, just in case I was totally off base - and they ubiquitously upheld my opinion while no few of them simply shuddered at the terrible experience at having had to listen to Gollery's disastrous narrative style for even just a few moments.

I cannot believe that the publisher of this audiobook would consent to such a terrible destruction of what would ordinarily be a wonderful experience - and can only wonder if Martin Gollery is either a close friend or relative of someone in the Publishing company that was given a chance.

Maybe nobody will read this, but if you do - I hope that you will find this review helpful.

GREAT book - but Martin Gollery is to be actively avoided!

Just painful

Would you try another book from Robert Doherty and Bob Mayer and/or Martin Gollery?

The first three books were great so, yes, I would buy another Robert Doherty/Bob Mayer book. The narration was painful. Halfway through the first half and I'm almost in tears. If not for the fact that I'm interested in the story, I'd stop listening.<br/><br/>Producers of audio books need to take more care in choosing narrators and to make sure that narrators listen to previous books in a series if there are any if for no other reason than to get the pronunciation of words and names. Some of the pronunciations are just brutal.

What didn’t you like about Martin Gollery’s performance?

The narrator needs to tell the story, not just read EVERY...WORD... DELIBERATELY. It might be a good idea to listen to a story before you tell one.

Bad Narration...

Would you be willing to try another one of Martin Gollery’s performances?

Absolutely not

Any additional comments?

I only endured the terrible narration as i'm already invested in the series, and want to see it to completion, if Martin Gollery was the narrator on the following books i would quit the series at this point.

Worst Narrator Ever

this guy is the worst I have ever heard. terrible inflection and pronunciation.
you guys went from an okay narrator to the worst guy ever he's flat he mispronounces things. The production is poor. Do not use this person ever again until he learns how to read.
