Return To Atlantis (Nina Wilde & Eddie Chase, #8)
 
Summary:
 
American archaeologist Nina Wilde and her husband, ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, are back for another heart-stopping, globe-spanning adventure in the latest New York Times bestselling series that “raises the bar to please adventure junkies who prefer to mainline their action” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

A MISSING SCRAP OF ANCIENT PARCHMENT.
THREE POLISHED PURPLE STONES.
AND FROM THE SUNKEN WORLD OF ATLANTIS:
THE GREATEST POWER ON EARTH.

Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase have stunned the world with their discoveries, from the legendary sword Excalibur to the golden city of El Dorado. Now, by bringing together three ancient statues from three different continents, Nina is about to tap into a colossal energy source—one not felt since the days of Atlantis.

But when the statues are stolen and Eddie is falsely accused of murder, forcing him to go on the run to hunt the man responsible, a violent struggle erupts among a secret, vastly powerful group that wants to control Nina and the earth energy. From a glittering, high-tech skyscraper in Japan to a harrowing chase beneath the Vatican and an underground military vault in Nevada, she and Eddie must piece together an astounding puzzle. For Nina Wilde is the key to a plot that will change the world forever. And Eddie is the key to keeping her alive.
Summary & cover taken from Goodreads.com

My 56:
 
The waiter reappeared. "Not now," Larry snapped before continuing with bad grace: "All right, yes, I made a delivery to de Quesada in Colombia."
"Let me guess," Nina cut in. "Two Incan artifacts, one of which was made of solid gold and weighed about two tons?"

What's Your Friday 56?

  1. Although it sounds slightly unlikely that anyone could not only find Excalibur, El Dorado and Atlantis in one life time, I'm sure this series makes for one hell of a read! I love stories with archaeologists kicking ass, since I wanted to be one for a really long time! I hope you enjoy this one! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. A friend of mine highly recommended this book and I have it on my wishlist. I agree with Juli that it's unlikely one person could accomplish all that but it does sound exciting.

  3. Sounds like there's nonstop adventure and larger-than-life characters in this book. Reminds me of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt stories, which are always entertaining.
