Nick Caine is a part-time archaeologist and full-time antiquities thief--a looter. And a very good one, too.
Now stranded on a small, forgotten island in the southern Maldives, Nick Caine and his ever-faithful sidekick Ishi are thrown into a desperate fight for survival. Seemingly betrayed by Marie Da Vinci, Nick is forced to gamble his and Ishi's very existence on an ancient map. The parchment document promises an incredible horde of hidden pirate treasure.
The very words are music to a looter's ears - except the duo aren't the only ones interested in the hidden treasure. Modern day pirates are on the scene, and it's going to take all of Nick Caine's unflappable charisma to bail them out this time. The stakes quickly escalate, leaving Nick and Ishi very little time to narrow down the map's clues. Soon, their fate and that of an exotic Maldivian beauty named Norema hang in a precarious balance... proving once again that looting is a deadly business.

It was fun to return to the adventures of Nick and Ishi, and I found it very interesting that this book picked up where the first book finished. I liked the characters that they interacted with in this book and the outcome of the story lines. It was fast-paced, and I listened to it in one sitting. I look forward to starting on book 3 soon!
This is a terrible contrived story. I would not buy another book by J.R. Rain/James and/or Schlichter. The plot was so thin and the story line was nothing.
No, his voice inflection and character interpretation is poor.
Near the top of the list
Other nick cane books, quartermaine, Indiana jones, etc
I have enjoyed both books in the series (same author, narrator, and characters). They are light fun romps through adventures.
