This reads very much like Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) meet Robert Langdon (Da Vinci Code) with the obligatory loony tune bad guy in the middle. It was a very enjoyable romp. A terrific thriller with masses of adventure thrown in. It was a long book but written so beautifully I just kept turning page after page. It had shocking moments, heart stopping moments and even a couple of heart breaking moments. This book took me to the edges of my emotions and beyond. The ending was very explosive and kept me guessing right up to the last page. I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be looking out for more from this author.
