from the back cover -
"Greetings from the dead" declares Maxwell Broadbent on the videotape he left behind after his mysterious disappearance. A notorious treasure hunter and tomb robber, Broadbent accumulated near a half a billion dollars' worth of art, gems and artifacts before vanishing...along with his entire collection ...from his mansion in New Mexico.
As a final challenge to his three sons, Broadbent has buried himself and his treasure somewhere in the world, hidden away like an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. The race is on. If they wish to claim their inheritance they must find their father's carefully concealed tomb.....but they aren't the only ones after it!
A friend at work gave me this book, and I thought it sounded "okay", then i started reading it and couldn't put it down. If you love action, this is the book for you. Great characters, the brother's don't get along at first, a love interest for one of the brothers, wonderful description of the location (don't want to give it away!) an evil bad guy. This book's got it all. I ended up having 5 other people read it in the office and we all agree it would make a GREAT movie!
A very exciting book. An archaeological thriller. Reminds one of Indiana Jones movies.
Fantastic read with unexpected twists and very well-written characters.
Never finished it. Too Implausible even for a day dreamer like me.
Prestoon is now on my list of authors to watch out for. Good reading and a page turner too.
