    Starts off a bit slowly but gears up nicelyFew rifts like the first in the series, but a nice little tale of the "Cherry Tree" virus, an interrogation tool developed by the U.S. to make detainees feel the truth (get it?). Trouble is it turns out to be very contagious and runs rampant through the government, causing our leaders to want to be truthful about everything. The horror...... Naturally the Nightstalkers get involved and save the world. from nuclear war, since it turns out a general sincerely believes he wants to launch a nuke. Not as fun as the first in the series, but still a good read and the Audible narration is only $1.99, so it's a good listen too!

    Nightstalkers respond to weird stuff, sometimes other worldly stuff. In this case, there is a warning light in an old nuclear silo that is currently occupied by Doomsdayers who bought it for themselves. Nightstalkers descend into the bunker to check out things and find an old nuke that was listed as destroyed. Now it's set to fire. On another front there is Cherry Tree, a new truth serum that makes you tell the truth for 4 hours and you can't stop. That might be OK if only used for interrogations but somehow it's out of the interrogation room. Great stories, lots of action and interesting characters. I've already started Book 3 of this series.

    Superb Action from Start to Finish!If you want some fast paced action that makes a book very hard to put down, then this is the book for you. It is done in the same exciting fashion as the first book only this seems to be involving real things, real people and very real danger. I cannot imagine this stuff happening for real without the entire country freaking out! So some smart, well, not so smart scientist develops a very toxic "truth" serum which unfortunately can and does get spread around during it's first real out of the lab trial. It works, but boy does it work. Not only does the person infected with this "truth" serum start telling the truth, they don't shut up talking until four hours later. And it doesn't appear you have to be asking any specific question. They just start telling you everything they have done which they lied about or any thoughts they might have wanted to get off their mind. This is a dangerous serum!So, how does this "truth" serum which obviously could be used on our most deadly enemies, get passed to not only a four star General who is a secret megalomaniac, but eventually reaches the President of the United States and his family. Sure, we would like for the President to tell us the truth most of the time, but do we really want to know all the secrets that office holds? He is a politician after all and they of all groups of people have the worst record of telling anyone the truth. That means, they have a lot to say when infected with this "truth" serum.So what does this have to do with the Nightstalkers? Everything and then some. We get more details on the US Black Ops organization and find out there are others out there doing what needs to be done and doing it just as well. It's good to read about the same team as in the last book but this one also introduces some more characters which are just as interesting. You also get a good dose of historical happenings or at least a fictional account of how they could have gone. Read this book and you may actually start thinking about who we elect to be President of the United States. Good thing we believe in checks and balances.

    Well they’re back for another interesting episode of sci-fi thrills and political tension!In this second volume of the Area 51: Nightstalkers series, Moms, Eagle, Nada, Roland, Kirk, Ms Jones and Doc find themselves having to evict two squatters in the command center of an forgotten (at least by some) nuclear missile silo in the middle of the United States whose systems have gone active. But why? And for what reason?The result is a truly unraveling yarn that will take the reader right up to the end of the book! Fast paced and with a plot line that twists back to World War 2, through the Cuban Missile crisis, the Cold War, and into the present, author Bob Mayer takes the reader on a journey in which the issue of truth goes on a wild ride as the plot unfolds and we end up in a White House gone bezerk because of a serum called ‘Cherry Tree,’ as a rouge general decides to start World War Three and uses the chaos to gain access to the WH Situation Room and the presidential launch codes. Joining the Nightstalkers in unraveling the mystery of a decades old code and the possibility of a nuclear launch, is the Cellar, the shadowy secret police of the spy world as they attempt a rescue of the White House staff, (including the staffer who is intrusted with the widely speculated about Book of Secrets) as well as the President and First Family, all of whom find themselves going on a wild ‘truth telling’ binge because of Cherry Tree.I liked this book for its plot and the characters and I think that Mayer provides us with a commentary on the contemporary issues in regards to power, politics, and as implied in the title – truth.I rate this book a ‘very good’ read.Note: I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book via the Amazon Vine review program in exchange for a review. I was not required to write a positive review.

    I really enjoyed the second book in Bob Mayer's Nightstalkers series. The story itself was interesting with a mix of different things going on (nuclear weapons, a pathogen, and the different groups). I liked the cross over between his "Cellar" books that occurred in this novel and I believe any fan of Bob Mayer's work would be pleased with how it went. This story didn't have the "supernatural" type element as the first one did with the Rifts and Fireflies, but still worked well with the more realistic nuclear weapons and pathogen stuff. People see the "Area 51" and will probably think it's about aliens and stuff, but it's not. Book of Truths is a well done thriller novel involving an elite military group based in/near "Area 51".Overall a very fun and entertaining thriller novel. The only thing that I would have liked to see was more action from the Nightstalkers. This novel kind of had a lack of them doing much during the middle 50% of the book. They sat around a bit while the other characters did stuff. The book started off with them and ended with them in action, but had a lot of time with most of the members doing not much.Great sequel and I look forward to more from the Nightstalkers.

    It's rare that I find a science fiction novel that I feel is so real that I believe it is likely to happen. Mayer has a way of doing that.Summary:In the second installment of this series, a rogue General has taken over the command center in the White House. The president has been incapacitated by a disease and the Nightstalkers need to find a solution before missiles are launched. Teaming up with the Cellar, the groups must save us before war breaks out.My thoughts:This is a book you can't put down. The pacing is brilliant and the chapter ends leave you at that spot where you must keep reading! I found the political commentary to be adequate without being overpowering. I found the truth serum epidemic to be hilarious even though it is not portrayed that way in the novel. Perhaps that is a little tongue in cheek humor. Anyways, the crazy General is by far the greatest villain I've read this month. Mayer takes you for a thrill ride and doesn't let you go. I can't recommend the series enough.

    The Nightstalkers aren't dealing with a rift and the fireflies this time around. It's a man-made hell that's about to destroy the world.A new "truth" serum is rushed into use without adequate testing and proves to be an easily transferred pathogen that affects the White House and the people in charge of America's nuclear arsenal. There's even a splinter group controlling weapons thought lost.Think about that.Politicians that tell the truth and can't stop talking.A nice little thrill ride that author Bob Mayer keeps moving along nicely as the world teeters on the brink.

    I liked this second Nighstalkers book much more than the first one...we learn a little more about the characters; the action is fast and furious; there are a lot of fun references to movies/music that are fun to identify, and politicians have to NOT LIE (there's the SF element). I did have a bit of a problem with a Cellar character and some confusing non-story action...but it was minor. Have fun!

    The book of truthsToo deep in the philosophy expressed by the all-knowing individuals who are supposed to be in charge of out of control situations. The rifts were more believable as no one seemed to understand them or control the outcome when they appeared. I plan to try another but not soon.

    Action, thrills, chills.Action, thrills, chills.I never put spoilers in my reviews.This book is a well researched military thriller with political overtones. You're never quite sure what's around the corner. Lots of action, close calls and observations on humanity.A thrilling, thought provoking, bumpy ride. All adults of both sexes will enjoy this book.

    Well this was quite a bit of fun. Less action than the first area 51 book, but it did a great job at setting up the world and introducing characters form other parallel book series.It felt a little like a national treasure movie, but with the characters from the area 51 series.Overall a lot of fun, and worth reading if you have time.

    THE YOU KNOW WHAT HITS THE FAN AGAIN, IT DOES.....Hello, everyone knows or should know that honesty is the best policy. Politicians, however, feel that honesty is, at best, whatever they think it should be. They would catch hell if they had to tell the truth. Very unique story and very well written. Good stuff. Thanks.

    Interesting book.In my opinion it should have been book #1, as it makes the whole story line clearer to me.That's why I did not really like book # 1; but now, after the fact it makes sense.Looking forward to reading books #, etc. ...

    I had expected this to be like the nightstalkers book, fast paced and full of action, with the same characters, but it wasn't. It had its moments, and was a good read, but it wasn't the same. Interesting reading. Good story

    This is great. An aerosol truth serum released in the White House and a rogue General taking control to launch nuke missiles and the special team sent to stop it all. Good strong characters and action from start to end.

    It was ok. Entertaining enough, but nothing to write home about. If you like your fiction closer to fantasy than realism, you may find it more enjoyable than I did. It's an easy and quick read, I'll give it that.

    Another excellent story written by Bob Mayer in his usual fast paced style. I do like the way he writes factual novels in that he interweaves actual facts and events into the story and wraps them up with the fiction that makes the story so exciting.

    Not as good as the first book in the series but a good read with an ending I didn't expect. I agree with another review that the Nightstalkers seemed like an afterthought in this plot. Hopefully they go front and center again in book 3.

    Enjoyable read, but I liked the first one better. This one felt more like a doomsday scenario novel with the Nightstalker team making a cameo appearance. They don't play a central role in the novel. Still, I enjoyed the story and the pace. I'll keep going with the third one.

    Totally not what I was expecting from a Nightstalkers book. Same team. Same base of operations. Entirely different mission and a great story. A new department introduced and "extended family". Highly recommended.

    This was a step up from the first Nightstalkers Book 1, but still a far cry from the original Area 51 series.

    Really loved how this story played off and not having anything to do with fireflies. I hope this series has more bizarre adventures for the nightstalker team.
