The seventh book in the NUMA files – A Kurt Austin adventure.
Years ago, an ancient Phoenician statue known as the Navigator was stolen from a Bagdad Museum, and there are men who would do anything to get their hands on it. Their first victim is a crooked antiquities dealer, murdered in cold blood. Their second is very nearly a UN investigator who, were it not for the timely assistance of Austin and Zavala, would now be at the bottom of a watery grave.
What’s so special about this statue, Austin wonders. The search for answers will take the NUMA team on an astonishing odyssey trough time and space, one that encompasses the lost treasures of King Solomon, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson and a top-secret scientific project that could change the world for ever. And that’s before the surprises really begin …
How to write a review about this book is quite beyond me. It is so filled with historic facts and fiction, blended together in today’s world, filled with action and adventure. To name some would surely spoil your reading pleasure. It is really a great book of intrigue and suspense. Ofcourse there is an evil rich person plotting, and Kurt Austin thwarting him as much as possible.
If you like reading about adventure, possibilities, with a hint of the past that could just be true, read Clive Cussler. I am sure you will not regret it!
