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.

Solid story

Where does 7 Deadly Wonders rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a very solid story and would make a great movie.

Which character – as performed by William Dufris – was your favorite?

Jack West is a fabulous leading character, can't wait to see the casting for the eventual movie.

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.

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.

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.

My first Audio book where I think paper is better

Matter Reilly is an awesome storyteller and I have read all the Jack West series. This the first Audiobook (and I have plenty in the library) where I think paper is better than MP3. Maybe I can read at a faster pace giving me the feeling of an adventure... Just as it was written.... Anyhow I will try the next because the stories are truly wonderful... Just on tue edge of fantasy with lots of reality to ground the reader.... See you again later Jack. Steve
