Publisher's Summary

Adventure, archaeology, high-tech cyber spying, and mystery mix to form a breathtaking, action-packed tale.

Why is tech billionaire Walter Falone involving Cornell archaeology professor Rob Johnson in something that appears to involve so little archaeology? The latest adventures of Professor Johnson and his protégée Abbey Summers take them to Peru, Rotterdam, Africa, London, and Australia in a new mystery thriller from author Bradford G. Wheler. 

How are dead rhino poachers, grave robberies, bioengineered disease outbreaks, and stolen ancient manuscript all related? While Professor Johnson, Abbey, and their crew try to unravel a set of clues that don’t seem to make any sense, they must dodge bullets too. Someone is desperately trying to stop them - by any means necessary. Is it gangsters, eco-terrorists, corporate warfare, or something much more sinister? Is their own government trying to kill them?

This assiduously researched, fast-paced novel brings archaeology, bioengineering, and cyber espionage to life against an international backdrop of five continents. Listeners will meet a fascinating cast of characters on the trail of the elusive international criminal killers.

Mixing the action of David Baldacci’s The Hit, the tech thrills of Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, and the dialogue of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser novels, The Zulu Curse is a true pleasure to listen to.

The Zulu Curse

The story is a little faster paced than the previous episodes, but the details are all correct, and the story is as believable as any great fiction can be. This book can stand on its own, but this series deserves a reader to start from the first book, you will enjoy the journey.

A Great Piece Of Work

Very suspenseful story center on the beginning, the creation of man. Many hidden character motives which are not revealed until toward the end of the book.

Outstanding Story

Another great audiobook. I like that one book basically picks up where the last ended. Not sure I like where the "romance" is heading, but maybe it will surprise me. Already downloaded the next book!

Five Stars From me

I love this series. The characters are believable and well-rounded, the story-line is unusual enough to keep the reader interested, and I always end the books dying to know what comes next. Clever writing, and well researched, so that the fiction winds itself around the fact to make for an entertaining story.
