Nick Kismet will go anywhere, do anything, to protect the treasures of the ancient world. But to stop an ancient symbol of power from becoming a weapon of unimaginable terror, he'll have to go further than he's ever gone before....
When an old college flame tries to entice him into smuggling a precious relic into the Unites States, Nick Kismet knows there's something more going on. But before he can get at the truth, a former rival appears out of nowhere, inviting Kismet to join him on a search for the mythical Golden Fleece. Although Kismet dismisses the possibility that the Fleece is real, he soon realizes that the search may bring him one step closer to unmasking the mysterious Prometheus group and solving the puzzle of his own origins.
Accompanied by the beautiful daughter of a kidnapped Russian exile, Kismet follows in the footsteps of the legendary Argonauts, and sets out for the Republic of Georgia, the site of the ancient kingdom of Colchis. There he will discover that the Fleece is no mere story, but is instead the key to a devastating new weapon. Kismet's quest will take him from the deserts of North Africa to the urban jungles of Manhattan to the snow covered mountains of Georgia...but to keep the Golden Fleece from falling into the hands of his greatest enemy, Kismet will have to go....

If you are looking for a new hero, Nick Kismet is definitely one to keep an eye out for, the books are full of action, intrigue and a tiny bit of romance for good measure. This is book 2 in the series and just as fun as the other books, I couldn't put it down. I really hope we see more from Kismet. Sean Ellis is an author that sits near the top of my favourite author list and he continues to deserve that place, if you haven't read anything by him yet...you should and soon.
This was my first experience with Nick Kismet, and I can certainly say that I will be back for more This story had non-stop action, complete with a whole cast of bad guys for Nick to go up against. I also enjoyed the historical aspect of the story, and thought the way it was weaved into the story was superb. I enjoyed this story from start to finish and look forward to revisiting Nick Kismet.
