Product Description

Fact collides with fiction in Will Adams’s fourth pulse-pounding adventure featuring archaeologist Daniel Knox.

Welcome to Eden. Population: Zero.

After she finds out her estranged father and sister are missing from their coastal nature reserve in Madagascar, TV zoologist Rebecca Kirkpatrick is on the first flight home. Underwater archaeologist Daniel Knox is searching for a sunken Chinese treasure ship when he hears of the disappearances and ventures to The Eden Reserve to investigate.

Still with a vendetta to settle, Georgian gangster dynasty the Nergadzes send a hitman to hunt down Knox and avenge them. As Knox chases answers he realizes that the idyllic coral reef of Eden hides an ugly truth – someone is willing to kill and exploit people for a secret that will rewrite the history of the New World…

5.0 out of 5 stars underwater archaeolgy meets the gangsta! 5 Oct 2011
By ratscat13 VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Off the coast of Madagascar underwater archaeologist Daniel Knox is searching for the wreck of a Chinese treasure ship. But when an old friend and her father vanish from the idyllic Eden nature reserve, he breaks cover to go and investigate. Enter Georgian gangster Ilya Nergadze (whoim Knox met in a previous book and has a bad history with). Hwe sends two hitmen to take out Knox but they have problems of their own.

Also bound for Eden is zoologist Rebecca Kirkpatrick, determined to find her missing family and solve a mystery from her past.

As Knox and Rebecca chase their answers it becomes increasingly clear that Eden's beautiful reefs and forests conceal more than a multitude of dangers and ugly truths - they also hide a lethal secret that could just rewrite the history of the New World.

This is the first book that I have read by Will Adams and although I found it a little slow to start off with it soon became a page turner. The story continues on from where the storyline of the previous novel finished. It isn't a problemif you haven't read the previous novel because this story stands on it's own. The plot has it's share of twists and turns as the two main characters are drawn together from their separate lives. Along the way it also covers some aspects of maritime history and archaeology which are interesting in themselves.

I found it an easy read with just enough plot twists to keep it interesting until the last page. However the end is a little bit of a damp squib following the amazing antics of the rest of the book. If you like this type of thriller it would be an ideal holiday read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheated 27 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
It's rare I put down a book feeling I've been stitched up by the author and the publisher but this one has managed it. Here's why.
Will Adams created a character - Daniel Knox - who goes around a bit like Dirk Pitt (Cussler) or Eddie and Nina (Andy McDermott) being a modern-day Indiana Jones to solve treasure myths, fight the evil characters and then save the day. It's what he has done in the previous novels and the titles of them reflect what you might expect to find. So... "The Eden Legacy". No doubt a similar vein where the garden of Eden is to appear.
No.
Rather a disjointed fauna and flora exploration of Madagascar with our morose lead character relegated to Best Supporting Actor aginat the foil of a lead - Rebecca Kirkpatrick - who needs to get in front of a psychoanalyst pretty sharpish to deal with her issues. Tragic flawed hero aspiring to the heights of Hamlet she is not. Irritating moue of a character she most certainly is.
The limp premise is straightforward. After the conflict with Ilya Nergadze in the previous novel where his beloved Gaille was murdered in a shocking and expertly delivered climax, we find the dying warlord sending Davit and Boris off to the Eden reserve in Madagascar, to hunt down the depressed Knox who's gone to locate Emila Kirkpatrick and her father who are seeking a Chinese treasure ship. Given Emilia and Dad are dead it simply means a run in with the self-centred, gambling addicted, emotionally dysfunctional, shockingly poor at judging others, Rebecca. Given her trauma at the death of her sibling and father I can understand her knee-jerk reaction and mistrust of everything, expecially given the fact an old friend tries to make money off her search for them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Read 26 April 2012
By Mrs. A. M. Chadwick VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This novel picks up where Will Adams previous one finished.

Underwater archaeologist Daniel Knox is searching for the wreck of a Chinese treasure ship which is off the coast of Madagascar.But one of Daniels old friends and her father go missing from the idyllic Eden nature reserve so he decides he's going to investigate.

A gangster called Ilya Nergadze sends two hit men to take out Knox but they run into problems of their own.

Rebecca Kirkpatrick who is a zoologist is determined to find missing her family as well as solve a mystery from her past.

At first I found this story to be very slow, (I did feel like giving up on the novel at one point), but thankfully it soon became a compulsive read. The story has many twists and turns and it also covers some maritime history. Unfortunately the ending I thought was disappointing.:-(

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor 1 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
This was the first Will Adams book I have read and found it very disappointing to say the least and can't think I will read another one of his. The plot in the end was weak and slow paced. The background Chinese nautical history was far more interesting than the story itself. It might have been better as a short story but not as a full blown novel. Too much padding and not enough substance. It was intersting to read other contibutors who were also disappointed with The Eden Legacy but had enjoyed his other Daniel Knox books. Perhaps this one was just a glitch. I hope so for his sake.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lack lustre adventure 14 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
This was the first Will Adams book I've actually read which I picked up in the supermarket as part of a 3 for £7 deal. I'd looked at his other work on Amazon, read some of the reviews and thought I'd give this one a try as the blurb on the cover sounded interesting enough.
What a disappointment though, it started off with an incident in the past leading to a tremendous earth shattering secret blah blah and so on which is dealt with at the end of the book in such a throwaway fashion you almost forget it's there.
Daniel Knox, although supposed to be the main character is an unrewarding hero and there are so many viewpoints from the other characters that you forget he is the hero.
With so many characters and plot threads running through the story it ends up reading more like a cross between a soap opera and a historical text book. Clive Cussler does this sort of thing so much better and I have to say I doubt very much I'll be visting Mr Knox on any further or earlier adventures.
