    An inexplicable explosion rocks the antiquities collection of a London museum and the race begins to determine how it happened, why it happened, and what it means. Lady Kara Kensington's family paid a high price in money and blood to found the gallery that now lies in ruins. Her search for answers leads Kara and her friend Safia al-Maaz, the gallery's curator, into a world they never dreamed existed.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoy Rollins' novels, whether I read them, or have someone read them to me. The narration by John Meagher is, sadly, mediocre. In both this book and the one I am currently listening to, Map of Bones,Meagher mispronounces a bunch of words. Words that are not that difficult, such as "waning" (as in the moon), "limed" (meaning outlined), and metastasized, just to mention the three latest words, are routinely misspoken. He has a pleasant enough voice, but the errors are jarring. When a "reader" mispronounces words, I lose the thread of the story momentarily, as I wince and inwardly complain. Someone either needs to review his reading and correct him, or get another reader.

    Story

    On the snow-covered slopes of Utah, the unthinkable has just become a nightmarish reality: thirty Secret Service agents have been viciously executed and the vacationing president of the United States kidnapped by one of the most lethal terrorist organizations in the Middle East - the Fatah Revolutionary Council. But surviving agent and ex-Navy SEAL Scot Harvath doesn't believe the Fatah Revolutionary Council is responsible for the attack.

    Story

    I was pleasantly surprised with the story and the reader. At first I was a little worried about Armand's performance, but after 15 minutes it was clear he was perfect for the job and gave voice and life to all the characters. The story was compelling and even though the listener knows most of the players, it's the way in which the protagonists eventually string things together that makes the story so compelling. I couldn't stop listening, and I usually try to only listen in the car so the books will last longer...this one pulled me in and kept me interested all the way to the last minute!
