    When a deathbed promise to a friend leaves Wendy Darlin, feisty Miami real estate broker for billionaires, trapped on a super-yacht with Ponzi-king, Charlie Hook, she's forced to join him on a quest to recover his hidden treasure. Along for the danger-filled adventure are an undercover SEC investigator, who kindles a spark in Wendy with his "Johnny Depp" eyes and Hook's young female helicopter pilot who befriends Wendy as they sail the high seas, one step ahead of modern-day ruthless pirates.

    When we last saw Wendy Darlin and Roger Jolley, they'd recovered twelve of the thirteen Egyptian icons stolen from the British Museum. Wendy, Miami realtor and part-time tomb raider, is now in a frantic race against time and a murderer as she searches for the last Lost Boy hidden somewhere in London while a killer heat wave invades the city.

    Woeful accents!

    I would be very cautious considering the narrator chosen for this book.

    Hot on the trail of Cleopatra's grave all we had to do was get from Cairo to the Temple at Taporisis. Morning sunlight glared from the muddy surface of the Nile. Six floors down a body in white sprawled in a splat of blood. My first official kill as a tomb raider and it was an ashtray-rubout. How embarrassing.

    Not well written at all

    The book was poorly written. A few laughs but only because the humor was so pathetic. The narrator can't do accents if her life depended on it.

    Such a GREAT story!

    Barbara Silkstones stories are so much fun!! She has a way of putting such a little spin on things that make you giggle. I really enjoy her books, an..Show More »

    In this fifth book in the Wendy Darlin Tomb Raider series, you are cordially invited to the destination wedding of Wendy Darlin, tomb raider, and Dr. Roger Jolley, world-renowned archaeologist. The wedding is to be held at the Van Helsing Resort and Spa in Loutish, Vulgaria. In lieu of wedding gifts please bring whole garlic heads. The ceremony will begin once the 40 bloodless monks are contained in Carfax Abbey.

    Amusing Vampire Satire

    I liked the humor, and play on words.

    Sometimes the book got a bit too silly.
