Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The name is Jones. Indiana Jones.

He's back. Everyone's favorite globe-trotting, tomb-raiding, wisecracking archaeologist is finally at it again-hurtling headfirst into high adventure and relying on his wits, his fists, and his trusty bullwhip to get him out of deep trouble. But the man in the jaunty brown fedora and battered leather jacket is no ordinary digger in the dirt. From the fabled lost Ark of the Covenant to the legendary Holy Grail, he's salvaged the world's most amazing artifacts, while beating the baddest villains and defying the most breathtaking odds.

Now it's 1957, the atomic age is in full swing, and McCarthy-era paranoia has the nation on edge. But for Indiana Jones, the Cold War really heats up when his latest expedition is crashed by a ruthless squad of Russian soldiers. Commanded by a sword-wielding colonel who's as sinister as she is stunning, the menacing Reds drag an unwilling Indy along as they brazenly invade American soil, massacre U.S. soldiers, and plunder a top-secret government warehouse. Their objective: a relic even more precious-and powerful-than the mythic Ark, capable of unlocking secrets beyond human comprehension.

Fast thinking and some high-speed maneuvers help Jones turn the tables, and a one-in-a-million escape narrowly saves him from certain death. But when he's tarred as a suspected spy and fired by his university, Indy thinks it may be time to hang up his hat.

Fate, however, has other plans. Suddenly the road to retirement takes a sharp detour when a colleague's kidnapping leads Jones into the depths of the Amazon jungle on a desperate rescue mission. With a hot-headed teenage biker as his unlikely wing man and his vengefulnew Russian nemesis waiting for a rematch, Indy's back in the game-playing for a prize all the wonders of the world could never rival.

Synopsis:

After an absence of two decades, everyone's favorite globe-trotting, wisecracking archaeologist returned to theaters in the summer of 2008. This official novelization is based on the film, in which an older Indiana hurtles headfirst into high adventure, relying on his wits, his fists, and his trusty bullwhip.
