LoveReading View on Seven Ancient Wonders

Drawing lines between American capitalism, Islamic fundamentalism, the Jewish fears and the powers of the oracle and mystics, this is a race-against-time thriller with the hidden sections of an ancient stone the goal.  It's pure escapist Indiana Jones territory with some ingenious traps and snares set by the Ancient Egyptians causing dreadful havoc to our daring group.  Non-stop action.  Great stuff.

Seven Ancient Wonders Synopsis

It is the biggest treasure hunt in history with contesting nations involved in a headlong race to locate the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.


4500 years ago, a magnificent golden capstone sat at the peak of the Great Pyramid of Giza. It was a source of immense power, reputedly capable of bestowing upon its holder absolute global power. But then it was divided into seven pieces and hidden, each piece separately, within the seven greatest structures of the age.


Now it's 2006 and the coming of a rare solar event means it's time to locate the seven pieces and rebuild the capstone. Everyone wants it – from the most powerful countries on Earth to gangs of terrorists . . . and one daring coalition of eight small nations. Led by the mysterious Captain Jack West Jr, this determined group enters a global battlefield filled with booby-trapped mines, crocodile-infested swamps, evil forces and an adventure beyond imagining.

They accepted the offer . Very shortly after, the books had sold out and the owner of the bookstore called Reilly to order more books.
