Description

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Gideon Crew--brilliant scientist, master thief--is living on borrowed time. When his mysterious employer, Eli Glinn, gives him an eyebrow-raising mission, he has no reason to refuse. Gideon's task: steal a page from the priceless Book of Kells, now on display in New York City and protected by unbreakable security.

Accomplishing the impossible, Gideon steals the parchment--only to learn that hidden beneath the gorgeously illuminated image is a treasure map dating back to the time of the ancient Greeks. As they ponder the strange map, they realize that the treasure it leads to is no ordinary fortune. It is something far more precious: an amazing discovery that could perhaps even save Gideon's life.

Together with his new partner, Amy, Gideon follows a trail of cryptic clues to an unknown island in a remote corner of the Caribbean Sea. There, off the hostile and desolate Mosquito Coast, the pair realize the extraordinary treasure they are hunting conceals an even greater shock-a revelation so profound that it may benefit the entire human race . . . if Gideon and Amy can survive.

  • Waste of money

    Too far-fetched. Started of with a good believable story-line and frayed into something out of a bad 1950's science-fiction novel. Not worth the money...
  • Childish Fantasy

    A very interesting storyline but possibly the worst writing I have encountered ever. I will never read another book by these authors and have serious questions about the meaning of NYT Bestseller.

    This was a very entertaining story. It was difficult to put down. I'm looking forward to Gideon's next mission.

    Suspend your disbelief. The book starts out as an entertaining thriller, then twists around into a fantasy fest. It ends as a prologue to the next book. Somewhat disappointing.

    If you like a good adventure with different twists, this is the book for you. I couldn’t stop reading and never wanted it to end.
  • Very Clive Cussler

    I was ashamed that I read the book after making it half way through.

    Very interesting. Read it late into the night. I enjoy the Crew series but the Pendergast series has my interest more.
