For three thousand years the world's most dangerous treasure has been lost Now the code that reveals its hiding place is about to be broken Sam Grant is a disgraced ex SOE soldier and an adventurer by trade But he has a secret six years ago a dying archaeologist entrusted hi. I loved the premise of this Achilles armour and shield That was what grabbed my attention in the first place I was sad to say I never connected with the characters For me to enjoy a book I have to have that connectionGrant the main character was lackadaisical in my eyes he never uite got the whole hero of the story down pat Reed the archaeologistthere were parts I wanted to shoot him myself The rest of the characters where so bland if I chose to mention them here I would have to go back and look them upThe story had enough villains to have a series of books Nazi's Communist Russians Pissy British Pissy Greeks Pissy Jews the book was set just prior to the formation of Israel Pissy Cretans and of course the evil Americans Let's not forget all the ancient civilizations Minoans Greeks and a few othersThis book had so very much promise but it got lost in too much over the top action and not enough mystery of the ages to be solved Overall it was okay a good summer read but not one to be purchased to savor over again and again
