The Team: Financed by a billionaire philanthropist, this elite team - a soldier, an historian, a computer whiz, a weapons expert, and a thief - is tasked with finding the world's most legendary treasures.
The Mission: Fearing a German victory in WWI, the Romanian government signed a deal with Russia to protect the country's treasures. In 1916, two trains full of gold and the most precious possessions of the Romanian state - paintings, jewelry, and ancient artifacts - were sent to the underground vaults of the Kremlin. But in the turmoil of war, the Romanian treasure was scattered and lost.
The Prize: The collection is now valued at over $3.5 billion. Despite several attempts to find it, its location has remained a mystery... until now.

I enjoy treasure hunter adventures (Sam and Remi Fargo; ARKANE, etc.) so this new series fits in well. A bit rougher around the edges than the others but still ranks with the Fargos and Morgan Sierra! Can't wait for #3!
McNutt vs the entire Black Robe mob.
When Cobb realizes the Russian Police Officer is not an enemy, as he rides his horse along side the team's train.
They are already making the film, so we'll see what they use.
I wish the narrator didn't use a "Valley Girl" accent/inflection on Sarah. It does not fit with her character. Hopefully after the movie comes out, he'll change her voice to mimic the part in the film.
The story in it self is good, the narrator in my upinion destroys the book. Will try paperback and see if I can enjoy the story the second time around.
The beginning was slow but as the charectors developed the story became more and more riveting Looking forward to book 2
What a disappointment. Don't waste your time or credit. If you are looking for an entertainment read that has some semblance of intelligence then this is not it!!
