Drake, Allie, and Spencer reunite in Emerald Buddha, the second Drake Ramsey adventure - a quest to locate the lost treasure of the Khmer Empire, secreted away in a hidden temple somewhere in Myanmar. But nothing is as it seems, and their archaeological expedition soon turns deadly when desperate factions target them in order to safeguard a secret that could topple the US government.

Joe. I really liked his character. He made me laugh all the way thru the book.
Hmmmm......I would have been listening to Joe Ledger. This book was just fine the way it was. I enjoyed the whole thing. The tin foil hat twist that it took was awesome.
It's RAY PORTER people. What ISN'T there to like about Ray Porter. Sheesh.
Probably the Emerald Buddha.
I've read all the comments making jest of this series. I have to say I like it. It's not rocket science. It's entertaining as all get out. AND it's narrated by Ray Porter. I'm glad I came into the series late. The third book comes out in a couple weeks. I can't wait.
These books are great beach reads, but you can't go in expecting a lot of character development. if actually say the female lead is becoming more damsel in distress than she was in the first book. And Drake is even more winey. But hey, the gun fights are well written, the pacing is good, and the stories wrap up nicely in the end.
was a good book. I did enjoy some of the political insight, but when it became more of a distraction or tangent, it really messed up the flow. I hope this series continues and that the author brings more of the treasure hunt back into it.
Love the characters including the latest addition - Joe, but would prefer more treasure hunting and less political stuff. Ray Porter was great as usual but for me this book was definitely not as good as Ramsey's Gold. I found the political stuff too formula and boring.
I enjoyed the continued adventures of the characters, although they need to become multi-dimensional. The heroine has not lived up to the hype of the first novel of the series; this is a disservice to women. I could write a series of novels developing her character based on the strong women I have encountered in my personal and military life.
No real treasure hunting. Too much political input that had no ending. Characters did speak much just regular narration. I like the first book so much but this wasn't up to par. Definitely would not recommend
Kind of like when Back to the Future did all the movies together...gets watered down. It was OK, thank the Lord for Ray, I think it would have flopped without him
Eh. I would say Eh, first one was really cool, second one was OK
I have kids
keep it going with some umph! Then I will keep listening
This was a little too complicated in my opinion. and the complications were a distraction. Too many different parties/characters/entities weaving in and out of the story line. But good overall and love the main characters and their interactions...and one or two new charactwrs.
