Publisher's Summary

Kurt Austin and the NUMA crew risk everything to stop a cutthroat arms dealer from stealing a priceless ancient treasure in the thrilling new novel from the number one New York Times best-selling grand master of adventure. 

In 1074 B.C., vast treasures disappear from the tombs of Egyptian Pharaohs. In 1927, a daredevil American aviator vanishes on an attempted transcontinental flight. And in the present day, a fishing trawler - along with its mysterious cargo - sinks off the coast of Scotland. How are these three mysterious events connected? And, more importantly, what do they mean for Kurt Austin and his NUMA team? 

As they search for answers, the NUMA squad join the agents of the British MI5 to take on a wide-reaching international conspiracy. Their common enemy is the Bloodstone Group, a conglomerate of arms dealers and thieves attempting to steal ancient relics on both sides of the Atlantic. Kurt and his team soon find themselves wrapped up in a treacherous treasure hunt as they race to find the lost Egyptian riches...before they fall into the wrong hands.

Lives up to the standard of Kurt Austin adventures

The usual exciting but slightly formulaic NUMA Files story brought to life by a usual perfect Scott Brick narration. Nothing earth shattering or overly insightful, but good solid Cussler entertainment.

Great clean action story!

This is a fantastic book for anyone looking for a fast paced adventure story without a bunch of offensive language and/or sexual content. So refreshing to find a great action story without having to stop it or fast forward over large sections of the story.

As always extraordinarily entertaining

As with every Clive Cussler adventure. An extraordinary combination of parts of history intertwined in an adventure story. Numa files is a special projects branch of Numa run by do US government. Kurt Austin is the director of the special projects division. Follow along as him and his team once again have an adventure to find truth and justice. Always an exciting and action filled adventure with a sprinkling of some historical fact and some imagined historical fact. Always a great combination that will keep you reading from beginning to end.

If you love tactics, this book will entertain you. A twist at the end adds some interest.
