The Sacred Vault Paperback
The sixth brilliant book from Andy McDermott - Clive Cussler's heir apparent. The world is in shock when Michelangelo's David is stolen from a museum in Florence, Italy.
The latest in a series of audacious thefts of historical treasures, it's only a matter of time before another priceless artefact is targeted.
When the Talonor Codex - a great Atlantean explorer's account of his travels - is stolen, it becomes clear that the thefts form only part of the raiders' ultimate plan.
The codex holds clues to the location of the Vault of Shiva and its fabled contents - the legendary Shiva-Vedas, the chronicles of the ancient Hindu god of destruction.
Witnesses to the latest daring robbery, archaeologist Nina Wilde and former SAS soldier Eddie Chase are forced into a treacherous hunt across the world to discover the vault before its secrets fall into dangerous hands.
The vault's prize is a treasure beyond price, but it may also be the catalyst for global annihilation...

Review by TomWheaton
This is the 6th book in the Nina Wilde series and is a bit different than the 1st 5. In this one, instead of Nina and her husband searching for some long lost treasure or artifact, they try to stop a mad billionaire from destroying all civilization. Of course, it has the usual long chase & fight scenes that are typical in this series, There are some gruesome descriptions of fight scenes where characters are either wounded or killed. All-in-all it was a good, easy read.

More seat of the pants action with Eddie Chase and Nina Wilde. This is a great easy read with plenty of thrills and spills. This instalment is set predominantly in India with our dynamic duo hunting down the legendary Vault of Shiva. Obviously there is the obligatory power crazed maniac never far behind them!
