Publisher's Summary

Thriller Award winner, Best eBook Original Novel, 2016.

Book three in the number-one best-selling adventure series 

The treasure: At the end of the 13th century, Chinese Emperor Kublai Khan gave an Italian merchant unfettered access to his kingdom. The traveler was Marco Polo, and his journey would become legendary. Aided by a special passport that protected him throughout the land, Polo amassed unbelievable wealth and hid it before his return to Italy. To this day, the location of his treasure remains a mystery. 

The mission: The Hunters - an elite group assembled by an enigmatic billionaire to locate the world's greatest treasures - are tasked with finding the missing fortune. Guided by firsthand accounts of Polo's travels, they quickly discover there are hostile forces willing to do anything to stop them from taking the riches from Chinese soil. Before long, the treasure hunt becomes a deadly game of cat and mouse that will rewrite history while taking the lives of many. 

The prize: As the danger continues to mount, will the Hunters rise to the challenge? Or will the team be eliminated before they find Polo's treasure?

Narrator can't do women

Any additional comments?

I liked the book and for the most part the narrator does a go job, but his female characters all sound like valley girls. Which doesn't fit with the elite professional women in the story

Great store but the reader is awful

How could the performance have been better?

The reader would have done better to no use the awful voices. By the time I got into the 2nd hour of the book I was ready to scream just read and drop the voices!!

the prisoners gold

This was a good read or listen as it was. A little too much in the graphic description of blood and Guts, it was still exciting.

Not as good as book 1&2 in the series

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This book was a so so story . It passed some time for me thats all

What do you think your next listen will be?

Vince Flynns or Stuart Woods New book

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I enjoyed book 1 &2 in this series. This book is just another piece of the puzzle of this series but thats it !!

the way this book ended seemed to me like it was rushed and just thrown together to fit

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

depends on if i liked movie 1&2

Disappointed

Plenty of action. Implausible plot. Performer needs to work on his female voices. Could have been a lot better.

Intriguing story line simply awful narrator

I got caught up in the story, but the narrator sounded like he was narrating a kids comic book. He made me cringe so badly at times I almost couldn't finish the book.

On the edge of your seat. You never know which way the plot will turn.

Appalling Reading

Bad accents, voice pitch and cadence. I have listened to a lot of audio books and Andy Caploe is the worst narrator I have ever heard.
