Overview

Nick Kismet will go anywhere, do anything, to protect the treasures of the ancient world. But to stop an ancient symbol of power from becoming a weapon of unimaginable terror, he’ll have to go further than he’s ever gone before….

When an old college flame tries to entice him into smuggling a precious relic into the Unites States, Nick Kismet knows there’s something more going on. But before he can get at the truth, a former rival appears out of nowhere, inviting Kismet to join him on a search for the mythical Golden Fleece. Although Kismet dismisses the possibility that the Fleece is real, he soon realizes that the search may bring him one step closer to unmasking the mysterious Prometheus group and solving the puzzle of his own origins.

Accompanied by the beautiful daughter of a kidnapped Russian exile, Kismet follows in the footsteps of the legendary Argonauts, and sets out for the Republic of Georgia, the site of the ancient kingdom of Colchis. There he will discover that the Fleece is no mere story, but is instead the key to a devastating new weapon.

Kismet’s quest will take him from the deserts of North Africa to the urban jungles of Manhattan to the snow covered mountains of Georgia…but to keep the Golden Fleece from falling into the hands of his greatest enemy, Kismet will have to go...

    Nick Kismet is off to protect an historic treasures again. This

    Nick Kismet is off to protect an historic treasures again. This time he’s going for gold. Starting with a plane crash and a chase through the sewers of old Marrakech Kismet gets drawn into a scheme orchestrated by an ex-girlfriend. He rescues a beautiful Russian woman, then rescues her father. There’s a battle on a snowy mountainside and another at sea. A traitor to American and a Russian spy round out the story. Along the way, yes, there’s an intriguing use of a refrigerator and a garbage truck. 

    This is a non-stop chase ending in the Black Sea amidst a violent storm. Kismet is sidetracked from his quest to find out more about himself and the Prometheus Group that was introduced in the first story of the series. 

    If you love adventure and myths with lots of action, this story is for you. Sean Ellis puts together great stories incorporating ancient myths. This is the 2nd in the series and continues in the best tradition of Indiana Jones and Alan Quartermain. Pick it up and enjoy a great adventure.

    Sean Ellis once again appears in my reading selections, this tim

    Sean Ellis once again appears in my reading selections, this time with his protagonist, Nick Kismet in “Into the Black“. I had enjoyed my first meeting with Ellis’s adventure hero in “The Shroud of Heaven” and the followup in the Nick Kismet adventure series did not disappoint.

    The author provides his readers with a story filled with action with every turn of the page, which takes us through sewers in North Africa through the city streets of New York and eventually winding up in the Black…the black being the “Black Sea”. Plenty of nemesis’ abound in a plot that has Kismet, once again, keeping an article of lore from falling into the wrong hands. It’s a fast paced read whose plot twists and turns are easy to follow.

    The author has a wonderful knack in taking an article from legend and convincing the reader that it’s conceivable that if it does land in the wrong hands, it can be used as an indestructible weapon of mass destruction. And with an item like the Golden Fleece, the probability of it’s potential eluding, not to some supernatural forces but one easily explained in scientific terms.

    While I highly recommend “Into the Black“, I should note that there were some instances that were predictable. However, I didn’t feel that they distracted or was detrimental to the overall plot and enjoyment of this novel.
