Publisher's Summary

Thousands of years ago, a magnificent golden capstone sat atop the Great Pyramid of Giza. It was a source of immense power, capable of bestowing upon its holder absolute global rule for a thousand years...But then, in 323 BC, the capstone was broken into seven pieces and spread to the corners of the Earth, hidden within the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Now, with the coming of a rare solar event, the time has come to locate the pieces and rebuild the capstone.

What the Critics Say

"A nonstop roller-coaster ride that lurches around the globe." (Publishers Weekly)
"A novel that grabs readers by the hand and pulls them along until they're out of breath. It is impossible (even for hard-core cynics) not to love this big, boisterous, action-filled adventure." (Booklist)

Entertaining Preposterous Stuff

What can I say?
I may not be the target audience for this.
It runs like a computer game inspired by Indiana Jones and Dan Brown.
The pace is relentless as the team races around the world rescuing treasure in a period of 7 days.
The history is interesting, although questionable, but I do feel inspired to go away and read up on it.
It kept me entertained in the same way a film like National Treasure does. It's undemanding but fun.
I doubt I'll bother with the rest of the series but who knows, I might need a bit of Boys Own rip-roaring escapism on a winter's day one day.
