Publisher's Summary

An incredible discovery. A merciless foe. A deadly race for the truth.

Off a remote stretch of the Indonesian coast, archaeologist Nina Wilde has made an astounding discovery: an artifact that will rewrite everything that's known about human history. But before she can return to tell the world of her find, her ship is brutally attacked, her crew is ruthlessly murdered, and the artifact is stolen. Someone wants this secret to stay hidden - and will do anything to keep it that way.

From the depths of the ocean to the Australian outback, to the halls of the United Nations, Nina and her fiancee, ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, embark on a quest to stop the all-powerful Covenant of Genesis, a clandestine group sworn to keep Nina's discovery a secret. Nina and Eddie have faced tough adversaries before, but the relentless Covenant is always two steps ahead of them - and more than willing to kill again. Who will be the first to expose the truth - and the first to claim the most valuable archaeological prize of all time?

Take another thrill ride with Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase.

Critic Reviews

"[A]n intercontinental game of hunt and be hunted, cracking heads, wise, and the occasional Indiana Jones-style whip amid plenty of action and gore.." ( Publishers Weekly)

If you like Action . . .

Lots of action & adventure a la Raiders of the Lost Ark! The Hero & Heroine live an unlikely life, do ridiculous things & survive multiple disasters in pursuit of a something that will end the world as we know it. This is the stuff of Saturday morning cartoons but still highly entertaining for all it's unlikeliness. If you just want to be entertained & kept on the edge of your seat - this is the listen for you!!

Phenomenal!

The constant cliff hanging by master storyteller Andy McDermott definitely keeps the listener on their toes just waiting for the next twist and turn in the exquisite plot... and this is for EACH of his novels!

Another super plus is the expert narration by Gildart Jackson. His passion totally allows the listener to truly feel as if they are right there in the experience while each scene unfolds. Awesome job gentlemen! Can't wait to listen to the next novel in this series. Thank you!
