Mr Mayer delivers another fantastic story line for readers to consider and enjoy. However, the editing is atrocious. Despite the attraction of the bargain price, no payment is worth the tedium of dredging your your way through virtually EVERY page chocked with grammatical errors, capitalization and formatting errors, ad nauseum. So my question to Barnes and Noble is: did Bob scan it and send it to you with no editorial review by his publisher? And what is YOUR review/vetting/editing process? How could you let this ebook on line (as well as many others) with problems like this? Ebook reading should have a level of quality at least as good as its printed counterpart if you want customers to take ebooks seriously.

I don't believe B&N has ANY review/vetting/editing process since it's a book SELLER not a PUBLISHER. Mayer seems to be the owner (or one of the owners) of the publisher (Who Dares Wins Publishing), so these books may be self-published (sort of) and self-edited (ALWAYS a BAD IDEA). I have mostly enjoyed all of the Mayer/Doherty books I have purchased (the AREA 51 series), but I agree that the poor editing and grammatical/mechanical errors are very distracting -- so distracting that I hesitate to read or purchase any of the other Mayer/Doherty books like this one, the Atlantis series, etc. A good story goes a long way, but if poor editing makes me work harder than I like just to read it, there are plenty of other, professionally edited books out there.

One of the best books I've read this year. The beginning reminded me of The Sphere where the team is pulled together. From there, it's a lot of what appears to be isn't. Not quite science fiction, more science thriller.

Good plot, but the story takes a couple of unnecessarily hokey twists.
