Wow!! This book read like a combination of "Jewel of the Nile" and an Indiana Jones flik. Wham! Bam! Thank you, Ms. Fetzer! This is one of the best books that I've read in a looooonnngg time. I could NOT put it down - read it in one sitting. Great, engaging characters - and there's a lot of them, so pay attention. The plot was super interesting; it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. The action was nonstop, the mystery fascinating. You HAVE to read this book.
