This books initial premise had promise and while the reading was fun, it slowly became more and more comic-bookish right up to the end. If you have ever watched alias then you can understand how in this book every little thing will just happen to go right for the unlikely hero. Don't get me wrong, I read the entire book. I even enjoyed it at times, but it was not a great piece of literature.

This was a good "Indiana Jones" adventure type book. Don't give up on it around page 100. It worth it to go on. The ending was great!

Like other Reilly books I've read: a fun, fast-paced Indiana Jones type book. Not at all credible, but a fun read.

A good read, the book begins a bit slow as the characters unfold and the plot is laid. Once the action starts it keep going and you will be on the edge of your seat to the very end. Everytime you think things figured out and that the story is coming to an end another shoe drops and the action accelerates as new sub-plots unfold. The rapas are interesting creatures that will fascinate you as you follow the quest for possession of the idol.

The cover says "Michael Crichton meets Indiana Jones". And I think this is an acurate description. This is a race between several teams to retrieve an idol before it ends up in the wrong hands. The book takes place in about one week and you will be amazed at how many things can happen! I can never wait for the newest Matthew Reilly book.

Fun book! A bit far-fetched at times, but he is a good story teller.

Matthew Reilly never disappoints.

Seems the Nazis are at it again and its up to our intrepid team to stop them from destroying Earth.

In a world-encompassing romp which leads them to the Amazon, our heroes search for a meteoritic idol which has an element to make the doomsday machine work.

They deal with natives, mercenaries, government agencies and terrorist groups as they battle for Earth.

The action is non-stop, the writing well thought out, the characters well developed, and the weapons are incredible. All in all a good, fun read.
