Enhance your purchase
Type A special agent Kate O’Hare and international criminal Nick Fox have brought down some of the biggest bad guys out there. But now they face their most dangerous foe yet—a vast, shadowy international organization known only as the Brotherhood.
Directly descended from the Vatican Bank priests who served Hitler during World War II, the Brotherhood is on a frantic search for a lost train loaded with $30 billion in Nazi gold, untouched for over seventy-five years somewhere in the mountains of Eastern Europe.
Kate and Nick know that there is only one man who can find the fortune and bring down the Brotherhood—the same man who taught Nick everything he knows—his father, Quentin. As the stakes get higher, they must also rely on Kate’s own father, Jake, who shares his daughter’s grit and stubbornness.
From a remote monastery in the Swiss Alps to the lawless desert of the Western Sahara, Kate, Nick, and the two men who made them who they are today must crisscross the world in a desperate scramble to stop their deadliest foe in the biggest adventure of their lives.

Then, as the ridiculous plot spun out, I kept waiting for an original story, but was left with absurd tourist destinations devoid of any security, characters whose development was watery as pond runoff, fanciful deductions that wanted to be "National Treasure" or "DaVinci Code" but without the fun, bad guys who magically kept popping up at every turn. Then, there was the team of characters whose plausibility dipped below 1%, whose technical skills bordered on silly, whose magical assembly of gear and weaponry hearkened back to a Harry Potter novel, whose character development reminded me of the most empty-skulled meathead in my high school gym class. And by the way, if you're going to steal someone else's book idea (calling Mr. Brown), try to put some originality into it, and don't write a book that wants to be a cheesy TV movie. At least the "National Treasure" guys were interesting; this book wove a romance subplot so juvenile that it drowned in its banality.
I gave this steaming pile of prose a fair chance, suffering through 40%; the book had me so irritated at 40% in that I easily decided to abandon it--something I rarely do but had no trouble doing with this steaming pile of prose. As Benjamin Cheever once said, "There is no worse thief than a bad book."
But, you have to keep within the bounds of believable. Some of the incidents characters get into are almost not possible but they could possibly happen. The end of the book got a little unbelievable. Diving down 60 meters, getting in a fight and then surfacing without stops and decompressing they all lived and never suffered the bends even though it was explained by the author how dangerous it was to forgo.
The 40 tons of gold was located but rather than getting it returned it was decided to hide the location of the gold at a known location that anyone else could explore and easily find. There just wasn't enough thought put into the end of the book. I was waiting for the Martians to land.
