Product Description

Review

Boyd Morrison hits his stride and delivers another smart, sassy tale fraught with action. The coiling plot crackles with tension and imagination from the first to the last page. It's a heart-thumping ride, firing on all cylinders. One not to be missed (Steve Berry)

Book Description

Can an ancient manuscript reveal the whereabouts of King Midas' famous treasure?

Format: Paperback
I love a thriller that takes you on a journey of discovery and blends old myths with a modern twist. That's exactly what you get from this tale by Boyd although in all honesty it's a title that doesn't really require you to think your way through it, just to sit back and enjoy the ride which to be honest is something that I really want from time to time. Whilst he won't threaten a number of the big boys at the top of the game, it's a nice bit of escapism and when blended with a decent pace as well as minimalist descriptive prose it gives the reader what they want without going in too deep making this a nice bit of fun.

OK, this is not as good as Andy McDemott and, despite the "A heart thumping ride...One not to be missed" glaring across the bottom of the pb jacket by Steve Berry, is nowhere near that author's adventures of Cotton Malone. A few years back, Dan Brown kickstarted the new vogue of "ancient-mystery-meets-action-hero-with-brainy-sidekick" and the glut of these types of novels liberally festooning airport bookshops is quite remarkable. That said, that is precisely what they are for. Novels to read on a plane, train, beach etc. - wherever you get a spare couple of hours to waste that might otherwise be spent in front of like-minded banal TV.
Of course, the glut has meant it is now possible to sort the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. The likes of Berry, Reilly, McDermott rise to the top of the genre by managing to combine Brown and Cussler into formulas with one-dimensional yet likeable characters, a hint of mystery with the multitude of myths and legends out there - and there are many to draw on, the usual intellectual puzzles that no one has figured out in thousands of years that our heroes can do in days, and the inevitable James Bond-esque villain who suffers from an inability to actually kill the hero without resorting to some spectacular and dastardly means of termination that our hero escapes from by the skin of his or her teeth.
Enjoyable hokum, to be honest, and it has its place on a Kindle. So, whilst in that airport once again, I saw the author of "Noah's Ark" had done a sequel. Tyler Locke - engineer, rich entrepreneur, ex-army etc. (much too like Cotton Malone, Scarecrow or Eddie for my liking) is forced by the evil Jordan Orr to defuse a bomb using Archimedes' geolabe. Inevitably a beautiful classics graduate - one Stacy Benedict (Nina Wilde anyone?

I have to disagree with some reviews here but that's OK. Everyone has their own preferences for everything from ice cream to authors. I happen to think Boyd Morrison is far more compelling than Steve Berry though I'll read both. For me, Berry can get rather turgid and bogged down in detail in some of his books; fascinating in detail but they tend to save the really compelling page-turning for the last few chapters. In books like this one, Morrison keeps it going throughout.

So why is this book dangerous? For that exact reason. It can make you late for work, miss meals, lose sleep with its demand for 'just one more page'. I'm not going into the plot. All I'm going to say is - if you like Chris Kuzneski but wish his characters were slightly more mature, and you like Steve Berry but want more adrenaline on the ride, Boyd Morrison's archaeological thrillers won't let you down.

This is the third book of Boyd Morrisons' that I have read. The Midas touch is fact and fiction mixed together and is a real page turner. If you want a thriller that makes you want to turn over the page to find out what happens next this book is for you. Really well written.

Following on from the Noah's Ark Quest, Boyd Morrison turns his attention to ancient Greece and the myth of Midas and his ability to turn everything into gold. Fast-paced and full of action, this is a real page-turner.

If I could I would give 6 stars. Great story and fantastic characters. It won't be long until Boyd' s books are made in to movies. Everyone of his books are fantastic. From the United States to Italy, the story moves at a fast pace and does not disappoint.
