When the reclusive mathematician Jeremy Grady goes missing, it's up to his estranged brother Jack to find out why. His search leads him on a far-flung journey - from Brazil, India, Peru, and beyond - as he unravels the mystery that links the Seven Wonders of the World, and discovers that Jeremy may have hit upon something that's been concealed for centuries. With the help of scientist Sloane Costa, they discover a conspiracy to hide a road map to the Garden of Eden - and the truth behind a mythological ancient culture.
With a heart-pounding pace and panoramic backdrops, Seven Wonders is an electrifying listen, and will be the first in a trilogy.

Probably. Daniels is a consumate performer, and does alot with the material here, but this story was somewhat lame ( as in, simplistic )
The conclusion in ( no spoiler here ) the garden rocked.
I hope not.
This offering is mild entertainment. Daniels does his usual fine work with rather simple material ( the concept is cool, the execution, not so much.)
A professor of ancient cultures whom prefers field work? An ultra rich woman focused on world domination at any cost? The dulcet tones of Luke Daniels, the audio equivalet of a young Harrison Ford?
Yes, please! And more while you're asking!
I usually don't read or listen to many books more than once but this is a story I would not mind reading again.
Jack, he was a non stop adventure maniac.
The Taj Mahal
I like getting sucked into a story and this was a great adventure to explore.
