Publisher Comments:

“The name is Jones. Indiana Jones.”

Hes back. Everyones 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, hes salvaged the worlds most amazing artifacts, while beating the baddest villains and defying the most breathtaking odds.

Now its 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 whos 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 hes 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 colleagues 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 vengeful new Russian nemesis waiting for a rematch, Indys back in the game-playing for a prize all the wonders of the world could never rival.

Synopsis:

In the cinematic event of the year, one of the 20th century's most beloved heroes is back in movie theaters worldwide. New York Times-bestselling author Rollins offers this official movie tie-in novel.
