JR has the golden touch
on 1 October 2012
Im a massive fan of JR's, I love his style and humour, though in this we only get glimpses of his signature wit (for me at least), I actually wonder how much input he had into this ebook. That said, I enjoyed this title enourmously, with its overtones of Indiana Jones and Clive Cussler (Dirk Pitt/Fargoes/Kurt Austin). A tale of ancient lost treaure, bio engineered guardians and plenty of action in the tropical forests of South America.
I look forward to hearing more of the character's histories (I suspect theres a couple of novels worth there), with the the exception of Ms Da Vinci (the lady who hired Nick Caine, the looter protagonist). She brought nothing to the party in my opinion, and was a self centred dizzy bint, and why he's half in love with her by the end of the story is beyond my understanding, but I digress. Suspend your disbelief for a few hours and you will love this fast paced, dont stop for breath adventure. Worth a look and for less than a couple of quid, why not?
