I don't remember having this much fun reading an adventure story since first devouring the stories of Jules Verne. This is what an adventure story should be. It is loaded with action, exotic locals, deliciously evil villains, and a not too heroic, slightly neurotic, unsympathetic character who holds the parts of the story together. More specifically, he is holding the secret to Strindberg's Star, an otherworldly talisman shaped like an ankh surrounded by a star. This object of legend and desire has been the center of a quest for well over a hundred years. The star, a reputed key to the underworld and untold secrets, has reappeared after being lost for a century. From the depths of a water filled cave in Sweden, across Europe to the dank crypts surrounded by memories of the dead from two wars, deep into the freezing Russian winter, and across the vast ice covered reaches deep in the Arctic Circle the search goes on. Will the ankh finally reveal it's secrets or be lost for all time? This book was provided for review by the well read folks at Viking Press.

This was by far one of the stupidest books I have ever read and I read 2 per week. The characters were poorly written, had zero chemistry and the plot..........well the plot was all over the place and it had no point. It went nowhere. The author tried to make the book a cross between The Da Vinci Code, Dragon Tattoo and The Terror, and failed miserably. I am just so annoyed to have wasted my hard earned money.
