Publisher's Summary

The Golden Capstone atop the Great Pyramid at Giza offered protection from the global flooding and scorching sun that occurs every 4,500 years due to the Tartarus Rotation solar event. But Alexander the Great broke the Capstone into seven pieces and hid them in the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Now, in 2006, another Tartarus Rotation is due, and whoever places the reconstructed Capstone on the pyramid in time will gain absolute earthly power. Everyone wants the Capstone - from the most powerful countries to terrorists - and one daring coalition of eight small nations who think that no single country should possess such awesome power.

Just so silly

It’s amazing to see all the five star reviews here! Bizarre and unrealistic story, bizarre dialogue, characters who don’t feel or act like real people, and a plot that is so ridiculous it regularly tore me out of the story’s world.

Probably the cheesiest book I have ever read.

Super Jack Saves the world.

Super Jack and his gang are the most entertaining bunch I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. I can't wait for the first Reilly Movie.

Waste of a good credit....

Very disappointed. Felt like I was listening to the scene-by-scene narration of a ridiculous video game. Not what I was expecting. Very predictable and silly. I just had to stop after the main character (a mere mortal mind you) jumped on the back of a 30 foot crocodile and snapped its neck with his bare hands ....ya....right. Even fiction has it's limits of believability.

Excellent Choice

This was an excellent choice. The writing is superb and fast paced, action filled. The narrator was wonderful, creating audible accent differences making it seem like there were multiple different speakers of this multi-national team.

Bias brings down a otherwise good story

The story oozes anti- American and anti-Christain bias by the author. There was also a notable lack of military tactics and equipment. This could have been a fun read.
