What a terrific series this is turning out to be. With introduction of several new characters, Jack returns to the place where he saw the golden pyramid. Disaster strikes and ths becomes a story of survival against Mother Natures worst elements, I felt I was there with Jack all the way. Leads nicely into the third book in the series. I'm really looking forward to that. Well written with great knowledge and understanding of the sudjects.

I can't help it; I'm a Christopher David Petersen addict. Combine this with the return of Jack Roberts of Destination B fame (Now renamed Hidden Courage (Atlantis) to coincide with the other books in the `Jack Roberts' series.) and I couldn't resist reading this book.
The author has a superb knack of drawing the reader into his adventures, and this is no exception. This story leads from a small reference in the first book that galvanises Jack into action and trouble. Returning to retrace his original route back from South America, our hero is trying to prove to a leading archaeologist that he spotted an ancient object beneath the sea.
Against all the odds, Jack finds himself fighting for his own survival against the cruel and unremitting elements as he battles to stay alive as the capricious nature of the sea threatens to overwhelm him.
Although the book as a whole is very well written, the final third is outstanding. The sense of isolation and helplessness is beautifully described as the sea seems it will inevitably claim another victim.
Make sure you leave time to read this book as you'll not want to put it down until you've finished it.
