What other readers are saying about this title:
McGhiever said:
An implausibly-prepared commando team races around the globe after remnants of the Seven Wonders of the World. Far-fetched even for Reilly, who substitutes his usual brilliant stunts with the foiling of ridiculous booby-traps. Sole highlight is a theft from the Louvre employing potted plants and a double-decker bus.

A ragtag team of protagonists embarks on an amazing adventure, searching ancient ruins around the world for lost artifacts by deciphering riddles in ancient texts and disarming hundreds of booby traps along the way, Indiana Jones-style. There many, many holes in the storyline as the adventure progresses, not the least of which is the premise for the plot itself. The suspension of disbelief required on the part of the reader is far too great for a book not labeled fantasy. You’ll constantly roll your eyes and mutter, “Yeah right, give me a break.” Also, where was the editor? The overuse of italics and exclamation points alone is painful to endure.
