    Forty years after the publication of Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods, Philip Coppens revisits the question of whether "ancient aliens" contributed to the birth of human civilization.

    I will keep this short. If you watch Ancient Aliens you will not hear much new int his book, rather expanded ideas. I found they talked about certain things that I wish I could google just to see what they were talking about or where they were.

    This is a very heavy book. I found I almost needed to pause it just to digest the info. Overall, I would say if you watch the TV show, maybe skip it. If you are new to these ideas, get this book for sure!

    At the old family manse in Louisiana, Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen's tragic death, only to make a stunning - and dreadful - discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle-her only protection from the beast-had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead...and why?

    Story

    I did not like this book. For one it turns out that there are other books in the series which I was unaware of, perhaps that would change my opinion if I read them first.

    The main character is obviously a knock off of a sherlock homes character, the type of character that is 10 steps ahead of the reader, and does not explain how he got to the conclusion of his reasoning.

    There are also characters in this book that make no sense. They add nothing to the story, and their personal story has no conclusion either. Maybe it gets wrapped up if there is a book after this one.

    The reader does a good job, but in my opinion makes the main character seem like a 1900's gentleman in a modern world. Perhaps this is how I would pictured it if I had read the book myself. Regardless, I feel it doesn't fit the story and is a little "hacky".

    The book does have some good points to it and it not overall terrible. It has some good twists and turns but I feel some times it just feels like the author makes this feel forced.

    Overall, if you want to read about a 1900's FBI agent that has a man servant, who runs around looking for clues about who killed his wife 20 years ago, with some very obvious plot holes then this is your book. It will kill some time but I think your credit can be spent better.
