    Expecting another wild ride!

    Dr. Nina Wilde and her husband, Eddie Chase, continue to astound archeologists and the world, by uncovering yet another unknown treasure. This one leads to the possibility of the existence of the fabled Pyramid of Osiris and a conspiracy the goes far beyond archeology.
    We are introduced to college student Macy Sharif, who is bored with her summer job on the project in Egypt. In just eight days, the leader of the expedition promises to reveal the existence of the Hall of Records, long thought to be mythological. Her boredom vanishes when she realizes some of the project members are plotting to remove treasures without the knowledge of the International Heritage Agency sponsors.
    Macy turns out to be resourceful as well when she escapes from the thugs who are inexplicably trying to kill her. She appeals to her idol, Dr. Nina Wilde for help. Nina, who has been suffering from depression after being "suspended" from IHA because of her disgrace in the Garden of Eden disaster, meets with Macy in a New York coffee shop called 52 Perk Up, and they're off!
    A quest to uncover the secrets of an Osiris cult leads to a romp from Egypt to Paris, on to Switzerland and even Monaco. A handsome, vacuous, action movie star, Grant Thorn, gets mixed up in the adventure, along with a pair of murderous Egyptian brothers and an American named Bobby Diamondback who favors snakeskin jackets. This eventually ties in with a plot that could kill millions.
    The car chases and shoot-outs go on a little too long and are sometimes a little too contrived for this reader, but fans of Nina and ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie will certainly expect them and will willingly suspend disbelief.
    Amid the action and double-crossing, shoot-em-up excitement are the serious themes dealing with the relationship of Nina and Eddie, Nina's suffering self-esteem and Macy's voyage of self-discovery. And, most satisfying for the fans of this series, the future is left up in the air at the end. Another wild ride is surely coming right up!

    I Also Recommend:

    Intense Archaeological Thriller

    Andy McDermott writes the sort of books I love! Ancient mysteries, legends, history, archaeology, and lots of action. Like Clive Cussler, the plots tend to follow a formula, but it's a formula that works. In the pyramid of doom, the opening of an ancient chamber reveals directions to a legendary pyramid. The action gets rolling and never stops. If you like James Rollins, David Wood, Clive Cussler, or Jeremy Robinson, give McDermott a try!
