Dragon Sim-13 by Bob Mayer( Book )
10 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 373 libraries worldwide
From Publishers Weekly Mayer follow up Eyes of the Hammer with a pulsing techno-thriller set in June 1989. As Chinese students are dying in Tiananmen Square, the U.S. stages Dragon SIM-13--a routine computer exercise involving a simulated Special Forces raid on a Chinese oil pipeline. But the program has been written by Doctor Meng, a refugee determined to strike a blow against his onetime tormentors in Beijing, and Sgt. Dave Riley and his Green Beret A-team find themselves actually in China, confronting disaster when a helicopter crash leaves half the men stranded in hostile territory. Mayer, an expert on special warfare operations, convincingly presents a situation in which no one in authority can quite believe the sudden connection between computer screens and real life. He equally successfully demonstrates how lower-echelon uncritical obedience to orders can make sense individually but add up to absurdity. The book's greatest strength, however, is its story line. In particular, the final rescue mission--featuring a hotshot female helicopter pilot--is a nail-biter in the best tradition of adventure fiction. Copyright Reed Business Information, Incorporated From Library Journal Meng, a Chinese computer expert working for a top-secret American facility at Fort Meade, specializes in simulation activities for Special Forces. When he decides to make simulated Dragon SIM-13 real, the buttons he pushes set up an elaborate invasion of mainland China to destroy an oil pipeline. Captains Mitchell and Riley head the team flying in on two helicopters. When one of the helicopters crashes, the repercussions are enormous--no one in the States knows about a real invasion, except Meng; and very few in the Far East have any knowledge. A daring rescue by pilot Jean Long, wife of Mitchell, produces a climax with enough suspense and action to satisfy the most jaded of thriller fans. The author of Eyes of the Hammer delivers another rousing tale. - Robert H. Dona hugh, formerly with Youngstown and Mahoning Cty.

Synbat : a novel by Bob Mayer( Book )
9 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 349 libraries worldwide
Following his acclaimed novels Eyes of the Hammer and Dragon SIM-13, Bob Mayer takes us again into the world of Special Forces, and this time Chief Warrant Officer Dave Riley and his team of Green Berets must defeat a threat shockingly inhuman. Set in the shadowy world of genetic research, SYNBAT is imaginative and nerve-racking - a thrilling read you will never forget. Riley and his A-team are called up for "damage control" at a laboratory in the remote hills of western Tennessee. The research done there, funded by the Pentagon's "Black Budget," is top-secret - until the subjects of the experiment escape the lab. The "SYNBATs" (synthetic battle forms) are now stalking the countryside, acting out their bioengineered genetic urges with ruthless efficiency. The Green Berets follow the SYNBATs' bloody trail from rural Tennessee to the urban sprawl of Chicago. In a climax guaranteed to set the heart pounding, Riley and a gutsy woman cop attempt to stop the Pentagon's unholy creations once and for all. "Black projects" are exempt from normal controls and hidden from public scrutiny. SYNBAT presents a disturbing scenario, but one based on fact. It may be happening today

From the NY Times Bestselling author of the Dave Riley Green Beret series Maverick federal employee Sammy Pintella, obsessed with uncovering the fate of her MIA father, makes a startling discovery while rifling through some inactive government files. A dozen, faded black and white photos seem to point to the existence of a secret US Military base built in the frozen wastelands of Antarctica during the height of the Cold War. Aided by Special Forces veteran Dave Riley, she heads for Antarctica. But they aren't alone. Spies, North Koreans and other shadowy forces are also en route, because deep inside Eternity Base is something people will go to extreme lengths to get: a cache of nuclear warheads. "A federal employee intent upon discovering the truth about her missing in action father stumbles upon a closely-held secret about an Antarctic military base - a base illegally constructed and which has been kept a secret by a serious of murders. When she and her reporter sister fly to the base for an in-depth probe, murder begins to stalk them in this tense novel. Unlike most military stories this will appeal to general audiences as a fine thriller.

"Staff Sergeant Winthrop Carter has just been drafted into the Nightstalkers--an elite group of soldiers that ... Actually, he's not quite sure what they do. Born from the Area 51 initiative, the Nightstalkers defy sanity and decorum and include among their ranks Moms, a Black Ops trainee too extreme for Special Forces; Doc, a scientific crackpot; Roland, the weapons enthusiast; and Mac, a contemporary MacGyver. All of them take their orders from the elusive Ms. Jones, who everyone claims is just a hologram. Those orders include tracking down and sealing tears in our reality that are releasing interdimensional beings known only as Fireflies--creatures that take control of both living and inanimate matter in order to unleash wanton destruction. Just as Carter is settling in, a rogue scientist triggers a fresh invasion of Fireflies that swarm a swanky gated community. Now it's up to Carter and his new teammates to neutralize the threat while figuring out who's behind the breach"--Publisher description

Atlantis by Bob Mayer( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
By NY Times bestselling author Bob Mayer (author of the bestselling Area 51 series).       #1 Kindle Science Fiction Bestseller     What if the legendary Shadow that destroyed Atlantis 10,000 years ago comes back to threaten our present world?     Washington D.C. is laid to waste. In Paris, the swastika flies from the Eiffel Tower. More than two billion are dead from the polar caps melting. This is the future that former Green Beret Eric Dane, with the help of Amelia Earhart, sees through the mysterious gates, unless he can prevent it.     A war beyond time. An enemy beyond space. A thriller beyond your wildest dreams. Three areas on the earth’s surface defy explanation: the Bermuda Triangle, the Devil’s Sea of Japan and a small region of Cambodia. Inside these realms, planes have disappeared, ships have vanished and, in Cambodia, an entire civilization has been lost, leaving behind Angkor Wat.     In 1863 Robert E. Lee led the South’s last chance at victory over the North. The two armies met at Gettysburg, neither side quite aware why they were drawn there. For the result of Pickett’s charge determined not just the fate of the war, but the fate of the planet on a scale that only a handful of priestesses from another time understand. They connect this battle with the Little Big Horn in 1876 and the Zulu territory in Africa in 1828 as British forces prepare to face their enemy at Isandlwana.     In the present, Dane must work with Earhart to make sure the massacres and deaths from those battles will not be in vain as they try to stop the dark Shadow coming through the gates from consuming our world.     The book brings to a close the riveting Atlantis series of books. Battles across time and space. Massacres and noble sacrifices. Creatures and events that mankind considers legends come to life in one terrifying climax that leaves the fate of the world hanging in the balance. If you enjoyed Lost, you’ll love this book and be amazed at the similarities in concept (although this book was published before Lost).       “Spell-binding! Will keep you on the edge of your seat. Call it techno-thriller, call it science fiction, call it just terrific storytelling.” — Terry Brooks, #1 NY Times bestselling author of the Shannara series and Star Wars Phantom Menace.        Atlantis Series:    Atlantis    Atlantis Bermuda Triangle    Atlantis Devil's Sea    Atlantis Gate    Assault on Atlantis    Battle for Atlantis
