Is there such a thing as being a McDermottaholic?

I was sort of aprehensive about Andy McDermott in the beginning. The reviews weren't the greatest (or so I've heard). I got the first book in the Wilde and Chase series, "Search for Atlantis" and from the first chapter, I was hooked. This book is no different. A little more romantic drama in this book than I would have liked, but overall, a really good read. It was honestly hard to put down once I got into it. If I had to relate the series to something mainstream for those who don't know what McDermott's Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase Series is like; it's like 50% Indiana Jones, 25% James Bond, and 25% Die Hard.

After reading "The Hunt for Atlantis" I felt compelled to read this book. It would surely have to be better. It wasn't. There is so much wrong with this book there isn't enough space to write it all. "The Tomb of Hercules" would lead you to believe there might be something about the tomb in the book. I was 200 pages into the book before the story line got there. It was another great "Eddie" book all about his past/present adventures and how many people he could kill.

If you want to read a really great thriller/adventure try Matthew Reilly or James Rollins. They will keep you on the edge of your seat and you won't be able to put the book down.

    Oh yea

    Good easy read. One cliffhanger after after another. I'm into the 3rd one now. Keep them coming.

    Not Atlantis

    First let me say that just like Atlantis this book starts off with action which I liked. Then it gets a bit melodramatic which teetered on corny. But it picks up as the adventure unfolds with the finding of the tomb and everything that takes place within. Then it got a little cheesy again at the end. Overall, I thought it was a good book, just not Atlantis good but definitely a decent read. Look forward to the next book.
