    The Riddle Of The Sands, Book 2

    I really liked this book! It was fun, adventurous, with lots of action and danger, and just the right amount of erotica without taking away from the story. I'm looking forward to reading the first book, 'Fathom's Five' and the following books in this series. This is a great fast-read book that was a lot of fun.
    With a unique combination of hunky men, Professor Fathom's group of skilled and clever adventurers are forced into a situation that will bring them together from around the world to the sands of Egypt. They are in search of the Lost Pyramid, in order to save the life of one of their own, by a crazed Frenchmen missing a finger.
    Shane is a gorgeous tan Texas cowboy with superior skills in cartography. He soon falls for the new member, David, a geeky reporter for a London newspaper. Jake, a New Yorker, is desperate to save the life of his partner, Sam, an 18-year-old kid from the streets, who has been poisoned. In the meantime, Dr. Santiago travels to the Amazon in search for the antidote to the rare, slow acting, and deadly poison. Luca, an Italian, will aid in any way possible to ensure their success.
    Together, they will uncover a mystery buried in the sands for thousands of years, and meant to stay buried by the infamous priest Imhotep. Jake will be forced to confront his father in an unusual set of circumstances that puts them meeting one another in Cairo. Will their relationship end in disaster just like that of Imhotep and his son? That is if they survive.
    In the race to save Sam's life, and Jake possibly resolving his issues with his father, (mirrored by the relationship of Imhotep and his son), the team race against time to survive the ingenious booby-traps meant to bury them along with the answer to 'The Riddle of the Sands'.

    A good balance of action, adventure, danger, and sex.

    This book cured my hankering for an adventurous read, filled with characters plucked right from mainstream movies. The only difference is they are gay.
    I enjoyed the writer's taste of globe trotting, mixed with dangerous missions of desire and greed.
    Will look for other titles from this author.
