Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is Indiana Jones territory as ancient treasure reveals a life-giving spring and loads of Nazis go a-hunting the water. Series heroes Nina and Eddie are in the wrong place at the wrong time and are drawn in. Gripping from the first page to the last with fights, car chases, a train chase, treachery, friendships and a satisfying conclusion with no loose ends, this is terrific. Action-packed is an understatement with every page building up the excitement and tension to the chase to the Spring of Immortality. It’s the tenth Eddie/Nina adventure so if you are new to the series you have got lots of catching up to do.

If you like Andy Mcdermott you might also like to read books by Matthew Reilly, Chris Kugneski and David Gibbins.

Synopsis

Kingdom of Darkness by Andy Mcdermott

Full of his trademark action, thrills and humour, this is Andy McDermott's most exciting novel to date and marks the 10th novel featuring his brilliant series leads, Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase. 1943 - Occupied Greece The mission was simple: round up any hidden Jews. But beneath an isolated farmhouse, one SS unit finds a far greater bounty - a shrine to Alexander the Great and a water-filled urn possessing mysterious qualities. Taking the treasure, the Nazis disappear...Present Day - Los Angeles Archaeologist Nina Wilde and her husband Eddie Chase encounter a young man, desperate to warn Nina about a raid on Alexander's newly-discovered tomb. But before he can explain, he is assassinated by a Nazi war criminal - who has barely aged in seventy years. As Nina and Eddie search for answers, they discover that the most evil regime in history is threatening to rise again. And this time they are on the hunt for the greatest prize of all - immortality...
