The Secret of Excalibur
by Andy McDermott
Bantam Books 2010
This was one of my first attempts at reading author Andy McDermott's works, and I was pleasantly surprised!
Heroine, Nina Wilde leads fiancee, Eddie Chase, on a wild ride that leads from Bournemouth, England and it's gentile quiet surroundings, to Greece, Switzerland, Jordan, Syria, Austria, London, and even Moscow!
From quiet towns by the sea, to ancient castles, to caverns beneath Glastonbury Tor that take them far beneath the earth's surface, spelunking and diving, to a nuclear Typhoon class submarine that is fast sinking in the ocean, this couple goes from one major, death-defying moment to another. All while being duped by a quadruple-agent spy for the world organization DAARPA.
Think Indian Jones meets Robert Langford and the hunt for one of the world's most sought after treasures, King Arthur's fabled Excalibur, is on!
You won't want to miss a single moment of this action-packed novel! If you love historical archaeology searches, and the fast-paced novels that usually are consigned to spy and thriller agendas, then this is the book for you!
Watch as Nina, and Eddie, literally save the entire planet from possible destruction!
Andy McDermott has 2 books prior to this featuring this duo, and another that came afterward. Bet you can guess, I'm heading to the bookstore now to get all three!
