I eagerly await the Nina/Eddie books they a well written page turners. All of the other synopsis have covered the plot sufficiently so I wont repeat it all.

I downloaded this to my kindle and decided to leave it to read later (lake saving your favourite chocolate in the box) and found myself chomping at the bit to get to it. It doesn't disappoint. I was stuck tonight on my commuter run for 2 hours longer than usual and was so engrossed I hardly noticed.

It's escapism of the finest quality. If you are new to these books it is best to read them in order as there is a theme and references to previous storylines. I am now regretting almost finishing this book as there isn't another out yet. These would make great films.

I eagerly browse airport bookshops for McDermott. It's like finding your favourite packet of sweets - tasty, enjoyable and slightly mouth-watering.
So...outing number seven for our highly irreverant ex-SAS Eddie Chase and his DNA-enhanced, overly intelligent, archeologist wife, Nina. McDermott's covered off all the problematic bases in order to generate these high octane novels - brains, beauty, fighting skills, political nous, uncomplicated opinion and a sense of wise-cracking, derring-do that this genre of airport novel needs. Once that's all out of the way then it's a case of diving straight into the action. I seriously think McDermott is trying to match Matthew Reilly, but someone's had a quiet word in his ear and said that Reilly is just TOO fantastical. Let's inject a modicum of reality into the plot. It actually results in McDermott, I think, being able to steal Reilly's crown with this latest novel. It's better than the "Five/Six/Seven trilogy" though a true comparison would be with Reilly's "Temple".
Eddie and Nina have left India behind and take a couple of days to gulp some coffee, get annoyed with each other in their tempestuous (yet loving) relationship before finding a reason to helicopter themselves as fast as possible to find firstly Paititi, then El Dorado, deep in the Peruvian rainforest. This time we have another upper-crust boor as the arch-enemy (a lot of McDemott's arch-villians come from the safety of English aristocracy) - Stikes, whom we meet in a lengthy prologue during Eddie's time in Afghanistan, a man with the morals of a psychopath and the greed of Midas. McDermott also choose to introduce us to Eddie's father, Larry, demonstrating a paternal/filial relationship that's more strained than a used teabag.

As a fan of the archaeological thrillers I pretty much can be found searching the shelves in a fair few bookshops trying to find something I've not already read and whilst there seems to be a plethora of new authors out there one name that I've learned to trust is Andy McDermott who has taken a different tack by having a heroic duo who complement each other.

Add to this a superb plot outline, some cracking prose and one hell of a break neck pace and it's a title that is difficult to put down. All in add a huge story arc, a huge underlying plot and danger coming from all directions which leaves this a title that will more than fill a good few hours of reading pleasure.

Book Description (from back of book)

" Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase are back for their seventh blockbusting adventure by the bestselling author of THE HUNT FOR ATLANTIS, Andy McDermott. When archaeologist Nina Wilde and her husband, ex-SAS soldier Eddie Chase, are given the chance to work on an Interpol investigation into smuggled artifacts, they are stunned to realise that the artifacts hold clues to the location of a lost Inca settlement hidden somewhere in South America. As Nina and Eddie dig deeper, it soon becomes clear that finding the settlement may only be the start of their incredible quest. One which, astonishingly, may lead them to one of the greatest legends of all time: El Dorado -- the mythical city of gold. Nina and Eddie are desperate to locate the fabled city. But they are not alone in their search. Deep in the jungles of Venezuela, they face corrupt soldiers, murderous revolutionaries and ruthless drug lords who will stop at nothing to obtain the city's treasures. With so much at stake, what price will they pay for the greatest of fortunes? "

Review

Still so many legends across the globe for our daring duo to uncover, but for me this picked up the pace where the last one had dropped it a bit, there seemed a slight lethargy to Sacred Vault that isn't here in Empire of Gold.
This is a true blockbuster rollercoaster ride from start to finish, if someone could afford the special effects Nina and Eddie would make Hollywood legends to rival Indiana Jones and theme park rides to thrill at Universal.

This book is never going to be literary award winning material but it is a true turn your brain off sit back and enjoy the ride fodder, and i for one love these books, with Andy McDermott right at the head of the pack for skill in writing these blockbuster adventure stories. (Parm)

Another stomper from Andy McDermott - fast-paced, full of humour and really vivid and inventive action scenes. A lot of people would call this light reading but it's amazing how much thought and research has been put into this book. What I like is the cliffhanger at the end which makes you want to read the next book ( which I have). A great blockbuster.
