The Covenant of Genesisby Andy Mcdermott
Synopses & Reviews
AN INCREDIBLE DISCOVERY.
A MERCILESS FOE.
A DEADLY RACE FOR THE TRUTH.
Off a remote stretch of the Indonesian coast, archaeologist Nina Wilde has made an astounding discovery: an artifact that will rewrite everything that’s known about human history. But before she can return to tell the world of her find, her ship is brutally attacked, her crew is ruthlessly murdered, and the artifact is stolen. Someone wants this secret to stay hidden—and will do anything to keep it that way.
From the depths of the ocean to the Australian outback to the halls of the United Nations, Nina and her fiancé, ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, embark on a quest to stop the all-powerful Covenant of Genesis, a clandestine group sworn to keep Nina’s discovery a secret. Nina and Eddie have faced tough adversaries before, but the relentless Covenant is always two steps ahead of them—and more than willing to kill again. Who will be the first to expose the truth—and claim the most valuable archaeological prize of all time?
Enter The Covenant of Genesis
And discover an action-packed thrill ride that will keep you reading long into the night!
"Archeological danger duo Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase, now engaged to be married, dodge bullets in pursuit of another fabled object in their fourth adventure (after 2010's The Secret of Excalibur). Nina isn't actually certain what she's looking for, but she knows the vastly powerful, resourceful, and mysterious consortium known as the Covenant of Genesis wants to destroy it, which provides incentive enough for her to disregard expense, ethics, and personal safety while pursuing it. She and Eddie escape marauding henchmen seeking to destroy their entire crew and all evidence of an ancient stone tablet they found in Indonesia, only to be attacked back at Nina's New York office. They immediately commence an intercontinental game of hunt and be hunted, cracking heads, wise, and the occasional Indiana Jones — style whip amid plenty of action and gore."
