Exciting read about lost treasures of Alexandria and global intrigue, typical Cussler style. I can only assume that there might be a cross-over of details with Steve Berry's newest release on a similar treasure!

This is just one of a series written by Clive Cussler and I have always found them to be very intertaining and have read the entire series. Always hoping for another to be added to the series.

An adventure that spans thousands of years & 4 continents. If only it were true. Nevertheless, a good story that might have happened.

I found this information inside this book. I liked it because it was so interesting and funny, that I decided to share it.

"A NOTE TO READER:
Please forgive the inconvenience of converting measurements from what most Americans are used to. But in 1991 the United States finally became the last nation on earth to convert to the metric system.
It's easy:
1 kilometer roughly equals a little more than 1/2 mile.
1 meter is slightly more than 1 yard, about 39 inches.
2 centimeters to the inch.
And there you have it."
