James Bond, Ethan Hawk and co eat your heart out this is action on a fenominal scale from stealing famous artefacts in the first few pages to mission impossible tasks and Bond type villains this is the real deal. His best book yet. Story starts with lots of action stealing valuable artefacts from around the world progresses to chases and kidnapping to start the new world order of Shiva and ends in a Indiana Jones type event with loads of humor to boot. BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!

I don't agree, as one reviewer noted, that it's exactly the same as the other six. This novel is formulaic, yes, but a total photocopy, no - its actually got less action, more treasure hunting, more suspense, though it lacks the pace of my favourite 'tombs of Hercules.' it's still thrilling, humorous and entertaining which is the whole point of reading this action laden book. If you think reading this is tiring or exhausting, perhaps reading a book about knitting would be more suitable.

This is a very hard review for me to write as I'm a huge fan of Andy McDermott as can be seen in my 5 star reviews of his previous books.

However, I just can't do the same with this latest offering. It simply felt too rushed. The wit and humour from previous books felt forced and predictable in this one. Eddie and Nina again seemed invincible. I felt there was no threat to either of them (even though they're split up for a part of the book) and was just waiting for the inevitable rescue and reunion.

If this is your first Andy McDermott you may well love it. Unfortunately, I feel that these characters really need a break as it's all too similar. Matthew Reilly rested Scarecrow and gave us William Race and Jack West Jr. I'm sure Andy has other characters in his imaginative imagination so maybe it's time to unleash them? Two books a year with the same characters is, sadly, getting stale.

It's not a bad book at all. It's just been done better before by Andy and others.

The title of this review sums it up. If you have started this series on book one and read them all the way through and liked them - as I have - then this book will give you more of what you liked before.

Quite how someone can write what is essentially the same story six times in six different books by just changing a few superficial details and get away with it is a Mystery, but McDermott pulls it off.

This has been one of an action packed series of books that I cannot put down. I will admit that I started reading them out of sequence as a book was given to me. Once I finished that one I bought the complete set and started from the begining. I look forward to more books from this great action author.

Probably the best writer in his genre.....

But not his best book, The pace is there the quality is there, but there is just a small amount of it being forced for me in this book, a myth too far maybe?
Im sure there are loads of myths and problems left in the world for our Duo to resolve, but this didnt seem like their best effort.
That said they are aging and they are suffering with problems..Ole Deffo (Eddie Chase) being the main addition in this one. But i also feel that given their exploits Andy needs to be bringing in some sidekicks and replacements to do some of the more insane stuff, there is a point where even the most accepting person is going to question the credability, you can only suspend fact for fantasy so far.

all that aside, Andy bloows away Rollins, Berry and all the rest of the genre these days, both in quality and quantity.
I await the next book eagerly.

But for this one a limited 6/10 for me...great fun but not the quality you expect from this man.

Having read all of Nina Wilde/Eddie Chase books you could say I am hooked, I dont have mnay favourite authors, so I look forward to a new Andy McDermott book with excitment. The Scared Vault does'nt let you down, its action packed, funny and keeps the reader gripped throughout. You read it all the while imagining how the whole thing would look on the big screen, it is one of a series of books that deserves the movie treatment, I already know in my mind who would play Eddie. Ive still the book to finish and am enjoying every single turn of the page. Andy McDermott has a way of keeping the reader gripped throughout.

As a big fan of authors like James Rollins, Jeff Long, Matthew Reilly, I started reading Andy Mcdermott's Chase/Wilde adventures from book #1 and just finished this one. It took me a while to plough through it and often just wanted to throw in the towel and start something else but I did it! I have mostly enjoyed the series but with each book I keep thinking that it's the same old story; the characters are in a permanent roller-coaster of dangerous adventure, surviving by the skin of their teeth and just when you thought they would have a wee rest ... off they go again! It is exhausting to read and keep up with them. It's not that the books are bad, just too intense and far fetched to keep me focused. For sure, it is the author's intent to keep you on the edge of your seat but too much of a good thing ... :o)

I have started Empire of Gold (#8 in the series) and I think it will be my last.
