I feel that this is an awsome action packed book that is very deep. It is a totally awsome bok that I would read again and again. I would give it a hundred stars if possible

If you like Clive Cussler, Matt Reilly, James Rollins, Jack DuBrul or Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child, this book is for you. Mystery, treasure, intrigue, action and an exotic location. A great read if you like this genre.
