Product Description

Fact collides with fiction in Will Adams third pulse-pounding adventure featuring the enigmatic Daniel Knox.

Twenty years after vanishing without a trace, French archaeologist Roland Petitier makes a dramatic reappearance at a major Athens conference, promising an astonishing find - the legendary Golden Fleece.

But before he can give his talk, he’s found dead in a hotel room; and an out-of-control policeman puts Petitier’s onetime protégé Augustin Pascal into intensive care, then later accuses him of Petitier’s murder. Only Augustin’s two closest friends, Daniel Knox and Gaille Bonnard can prove his innocence.

However, rumours of the fleece’s rediscovery have spread, and. ambitious Georgian oligarch Nergadze is determined to get it first. He sends his psychopathic grandson Mikhail to Athens with orders to bring it back. Mikhail quickly becomes convinced that Dan Knox has it, and slowly moves in for the kill…

2.0 out of 5 stars mis-sold 25 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read Adam's last two books and they were fairly good archaeological thrillers.

However, this has a far more unsavoury undertone and that spoilt it for me. If I wanted to purchase a serial type killer novel with rape and pedophile suggestions, that's the novel I would buy. But I don't, I want a fast paced archaeological thriller with twists and turns, secrets and mysteries, or at least be warned that this isn't what it says on the tin.

Disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 5 Oct 2010
By ABW
Format:Paperback
I read both The Alexander Cypher and The Exodus Quest and really looked forward to reading The Lost Labyrinth. I was keen to learn more about the archeology of the region and to see how the relationship between Daniel Knox and Gaille developed. It looked like they would become a good pairing for future novels. I was quickly disappointed with the crime angle of the story. The idea that Daniel Knox, as an archeologist, could (on several occasions)outwit an entire mafia-type organisation is unbelievable - even with help from others. The ending was disappointing as the Labyrinth of the title and the golden fleece simply become a backdrop for the violent ending. One particular death at the end was totally unecessary. It seemed as though he'd run out of ideas and just wanted to finish the book. That said, I'm looking forward to reading Will Adams next novel. I just hope it's more like the earlier novels.

By Amelrode VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is now no. 3 of the Knox - adventures and mysteries. Will Adams sticks to the she same style and ingredients as in his two previous novels "The Alexander Cipher" and "The Exodus Quest". Different angles lead to a dramatic climax. Knox is back, but rather a show of his former self. His character does not develop. The new characters - a sadist and a pedophile oligrach - do not carry the story. The historical bits do not create the specific atmosphere or generate this specific interest. It is still fast paced and partly entertaining, but the story never really takes off and graps one only party. I did not want to stop reading it, but as soon as you are finsihed it you will have forgotten about it. There is simpyl something missing. So it is an ok book but not at all a very good one. The last line promise a sequence but I hope Will Adams will improve here. He has the potential and I hope he is going to use it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nasty thriller with menace 5 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed in this latest novel from Will Adams. The archaeological content is merely a thin veneer on top of a crime novel about a really nasty psychopathic killer (Mikhail Nergadze) from a wealthy but seriously flawed Georgian family living in Greece. Even the famous golden fleece becomes a throwaway item at the end of a book full of brutal confrontations described in detail. Since his hero(?antihero) Knox is not known for his fighting ability, he and his friends are completely out of their depth in any encounters with the psychopath and his gang and Knox's overcoming him at the end of the novel seemed farfetched to me.
The book is sold as an archaeological thriller and it is doubtful if it really fits this description in any way. I found the Nergadze family members far too unsavoury and I would not have bought this book had I known it was a crime novel about a vicious psychopath.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Labyrinth 25 Mar 2013

Once again Will Adams produces a story which is not only enjoyable but makes one think about the subject matter he is propounding. It grips the reader from the first moment of reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars An okay read 22 Dec 2009
By Mandy
Format:Paperback
This is the first book I have read by this particular author and although it was an okay read I don't think I would rush out to buy more of his books.

I found the constant toing and froing from one character to the next a bit off-putting, although this is a style of writing that I have read with other authors before and never had a problem with it. In the case of The Lost Labyrinth I found that this particular style made it a very difficult book to get into.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unnecessary and detailed violence 18 April 2010
By Alien
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really like archeology/mithological themed books. This, however, is neither of those. The archeology is just a disguise to endless descriptions of the main "bad guy"'s crimes. Now, how many children does he have to rape, how many people does he have to murder/torture for us to realize that he is a psycho? My guess is, everyone knows it pretty soon, no need to keep repeating... I read these books because I want a couple of hours of relax and maybe even learn something with it. Yes, it's escapism and I'm not looking for classical literature but I'm not looking to a doc on how bad people can be either... I would not have bought the book had I known what it was. I usually read a bit before falling asleep, I had nightmares. And please... "if you like Dan Brown you'll love Will Adams"? Guess again. But you'll probably do love Steve Berry (just search Amazon).
