An ancient warrior. An incredible treasure. A lethal enemy.
It's the opportunity of a lifetime---the chance to prove that a tomb containing the remains of the legendary hero Hercules actually exists. If American archaeologist Nina Wilde can locate it, it will be the most important historical find ever unearthed. But as Nina and her ex-SAS bodyguard, Eddie Chase, begin their search, it's clear that others want to find the tomb---and the unimaginable riches within---and will do anything to get there first. Who will find the tomb of Hercules first, and what fantastic treasure does it hold?
From New York to Shanghai, from Switzerland to the diamond mines of Botswana, Nina and Eddie must stay one step ahead of their enemies in a race to solve a mystery as ancient as civilization itself. But when a beautiful woman from Eddie's past joins the hunt, all the rules change---and in this life-and-death game, their next move may be the most dangerous one of all.
Take another thrill ride with Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase.

"Where others' action scenes limp along unconvincingly, his explode off the page in Technicolor, IMAX-scale, Dolby digital surround sound.... The dialogue crackles." (Daily Express UK)
I like the continuity from the last story, how Nina has been set up to make more great archaeological finds.
I plan to listen to the rest of the series.
Yes, the narrator does a good job of keeping up with the action style writing.
Non stop suspense and action!
The only thing that drove me near insane was the narrator's weird pronunciation of some words. He adds "er" to words that don't end in "er". For instance he says the name Nina, "Neener".
