“What a ride! It took more than a week to finish due to travel schedule, but was well worth the wait when I was in the pool over the weekend enthralled in the adventure. Great historical references. Brief summary below:
Here is the most explosive adventure yet from the New York Times bestselling author of Atlantis and The Lost Tomb whiplash-inducing novel that sends marine archaeologist Jack Howard and his team on a treasure hunt . . . and a race against time to stop a terrifying threat.
Greece, 1876. Renowned archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann unearths the tomb of legendary King Agamemnon and makes a mind-blowing discovery. Determined to keep it secret until the time is right, he dies before it can be revealed to the world.
Germany, 1945. The liberation of a concentration camp reveals clues to the lost antiquities stolen by the Nazis. But the operation is covered up after a horrific secret surfaces.
Northern Aegean, present day. Jack Howard, head of the International Maritime University, and his team discover the wreckage of the legendary Greek fleet from the Trojan War, sending shock waves around the world. But the biggest surprise is yet to come, for Jack is on the trail not only of Agamemnon, but of Schliemann'ÂÂs true discovery ÂÂand a mystery so explosive that it leads to the kidnapping of Jack'ÂÂs daughter and a confrontation with a new and evil foe.”
“Lot's of bits and pieces of history about Schliemann and Troy sprinkled in this fast paced thriller, but the search for something Schlieman found and hid and how it ties in to a plot by the Nazis at the end of WWII. The 5th in a series of historical thrillers this one was definitely better than the last one, but not quite up to the first couple. Still, if you like archeology and diving and history you will probably like this one.”Peter C wrote this review Sunday, April 15, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
