Review by Alaric.Adair
A fairly routine adventure thriller based around a doom laden artefact hidden in the site of Noah's ark. In a Dirk Pitt (Clive Cussler) style adventure complete with a glamorous heroine, the hero does battle with the wealthy bad guy. Some of the story set ups are a bit predictable, but the book is sufficiently entertaining to pop in the suitcase if you are anticipating a long flight or a boring evening in a business hotel.
Review by generalkala
A more generic thriller based on a historical/religious artifact cannot be found - young, pretty archaeologist meets ex-military, cynical man and they get shot at a lot.It's readable though, and I enjoyed it despite its predictability. That is the novel's only flaw really, aside from prose and dialogue that occasionally doesn't QUITE flow as it should.There are no twists, no turns, and I really can't emphasise the generic-ness enough. But hey, it's worth a read.
