A great read. A lot of unexpected things happening. Once you're in the story, you can't stop reading. Author uses a lot of words I'v never heard of, but that's more my lack of vocabulary. Writer uses a funny choice of words sometimes to keep the story "light". There are a few open ends here, which I wouldn't mind being "solved".
I love to discover great books in a series because I love to look forward to the next adventure. Fortunately, this happened with Don Hoesels' Jack Hawthorne character. Heading back into the archaeology field, Hawthorne is thrown into exciting and dangerous adventures, which continue through all three books. I was glad to be able to continue on to the next story.
