Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"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 story but...

I really do like these types of stories and overall the characters and such are fun. I just can't stand all the profanity. It just takes away from the fun and adds such a layer of grime. To even have it that part of your storyline is to somehow make it a part of the storyline is just too much.

Not sure about this one

What did you love best about The Tomb of Hercules?

I like the continuity from the last story, how Nina has been set up to make more great archaeological finds.

Would you be willing to try another book from Andy McDermott? Why or why not?

I plan to listen to the rest of the series.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes, the narrator does a good job of keeping up with the action style writing.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Non stop suspense and action!

Any additional comments?

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".
