Book Description

Book 3 in the Matt Drake series. These books should be read in order.
Recommended for those who love an escapist action adventure.
Praise for 'The Bones of Odin' - a UK #1 Bestseller
"Bond meets The Da Vinci code but with higher stakes!"
"If you like Andy Mcdermott or Matthew Reilly, get this book."

Matt Drake, broken by the murder of his loved ones, betrayal, and the threat to his friends, sets out to cancel the blood vendetta imposed by the underworld linchpin, the Blood King. Revenge, terrible and personal drives Drake in his quest to stop the man who has become his nemesis.

The mercenary, Boudreau, now in the hands of his enemies, sits stone-faced and unflinching as Hayden Jaye desperately tries to extract the information she needs to save the lives of hundreds. After several failed attempts she becomes painfully aware it's going to take extreme measures to make him talk.

Meanwhile, the Blood King finally sets into motion his long-term plan to enter the Gates of Hell and finish something his idol, Captain Cook, could never do: discover the shocking secrets hidden within, while launching multiple terrorist attacks and an all-out war against the islands of Hawaii.

With nothing more than an ancient map left behind by Captain Cook, Drake and his team must follow the Blood king through a deadly maze in the heart of a volcano. He risks everything to track down the most dangerous man of modern times and help unravel the mysteries surrounding the bones of Odin.

Again another edge of the Seat book in the Matt Drake series. As you reach the gripping climax near the end you think how can another story be written then you are given the reason and left open mouthed and definitely wanting more. Twists and turns with the unexpected every time you turn a page. This author is definitely not one to miss if you like reading a book you can't put down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 24 Sept. 2012

Well there was I thinking this was going to the final part and low and behold we move onto part 4 the final part!!! What a series this is turning out to be. I think the story is just getting stronger and stronger and the characters really developing with out giving to much away , Matthew and his associates are still on the trail of the Blood King and pursue him through various types of mayhem ultimately travelling down into the bowels of the earth having to avoid an amazing trap system to ultimately arrive at their goal. Yet again another real twist at the end can't wait for the next part great work David keep it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thriller 26 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant thriller. I have read all three books now and I can't wait for the next Matt Drake. Full of brilliant characters and really nasty villains.
Also the pace is headlong most of the time. I really resented having to put it down.

I loved it - a talented hero who does everything right. So different from everyday life.

Fast-paced and with a fascinating idea as a plot, I shall continue reading this series. A great way to unwind.

A solid and exciting adventure and action novel. The Matt Drake series is rather exciting and on a par with Reacher, Cross and nearly Bond. Good work DL.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gates of Hell (Matt Drake 3) 25 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What can I say! Having read the previous 2 books in this trilogy and now completed book 3, I feel I can now breathe again. The world has been saved and there is a great, tight band of good people out there making sure it stays that way by going into action as, wherever and whenever necessary. There were so many things I loved about the storyline and the main characters in these books including the way factual events were interwoven into the storyline. This seemed to make it all the more real for me. Indeed, I not only read the words but saw the action taking place. I was there! I have only once before read an author's books one after the other without a break. That other author was Louise Penny. I will be following your writing with great interest, Mr Leadbeater and have already purchased your other 2 books.

Following Matt Drake is good fun, you feel like you are there with him, how he gets through takes a lot of imagination, but who cares a great read.
