James Rollins' books push the boundaries of the believable -- and I love them! This book, however, was so unbelievable that it bordered on being ridiculous. Nor did I like the romantic relationships that developed simultaneously between the uncle and his former college sweetheart and between the nephew and his fellow researcher. One romantic relationship would have been enough. Two seemed cheesy.

Enjoyable fast paced read. Again contains a story line that you need the ability to suspend your need for reality. I found it fun and intertaining, certainly a page turner. He does imploy the style of story telling that follows 1st one set of characters and just when they are in jeopardy skips to another set of charaters. I'll be reading more of his books, they are a great "bus" read (I commute to work).

You like archeological digs and ancient history? How about a novel that brings in both of those, then tosses in a chase and a search for buried (well something). Very readable. Good story. A page turner

Excellent read. This book seemed to read much quicker than previous James Rollins' books. Page-turner from start to finish.
