Archaeologist Leah Andrews stumbles upon something inexplicable in southwestern New Mexico: Inside a dark cavern lies an undiscovered, Native American cliff dwelling abandoned for 800 years. While twisting through one of the narrow underground passageways, Leah’s flashlight illuminates the remains of a violent massacre.
Ancient human remains - all slaughtered in a long-ago massacre - cover the cavern floor, along with several brilliantly colored, granite crystals. The rare gems are native to only one place on earth: A frozen mountain range in central Antarctica.
Could Native Americans have traveled to the frozen continent of Antarctica 800 years before the first known human exploration? If so, how? And why?
There’s only one person who can get Leah to those mountains in Antarctica: Her estranged husband and climbing guide Jack Hobson.
At their destination, they make a stunning discovery that will change history and science forever. But Leah’s team is far from the only interested party.
As her secret makes its way to the highest levels of government, a race to seize the Russian-claimed Antarctic territory brings the world to the brink of nuclear conflict.

A great premise, but Tinto's research is haphazard at best and completely off base at worse. He links Native American tribes as living together that were hundreds, if not thousands, of years apart while ignoring the Apache, which were native to the Gila Forest where the site is discovered. Also, the author got the distances and geography of southwest New Mexico painfully incorrect. You can't drive in an hour from Albuquerque to the Gila Cliff Dwellings, it's a 6-7 hour drive with only one road in and out of the cliff dwellings monument. There are several other issues with the story just with the Gila Forest setting (note that the Gila Cliff Dwellings are surrounded by the Gila Wilderness, a region that doesn't allow any motorized vehicles within it, yet people in the story drive trucks and ATV all over the pristine and protected forest, including government officials).
Too many archealogical conjectures unanswered, too many alien and technogical conjectures unanswered.
I did not find Dr Leah believable in word or action.
Series needs significantly more research!!!!!

The characters are about as preposterous as the plot, over the top and out of sight. Even trying to make a valid précis of the plot is difficult without sounding plain daft.
The female lead has more testosterone than a 1960's eastern European lady hammer thrower and is a cold un likeable self centred person. Her male lead - sort of ex husband, may be able to climb Everest in his underpants but is totally subservient to her, making him a less than admirable hero. There are several more standard issue American characterless characters to make quite a large cast. If you can follow the plot, which develops at breakneck speed, and accept all the tenuous links, co-incidences and down right silliness then you are more likely to enjoy this book than I did. BUT I am the only 1 star reviewer to date versus 80 four and five stars.
Ok for me the whole idea of reading a work of fiction is to be carried away into a place in my mind where fantasy is allowed to live. Unfortunately this is a fragile place, a place that you can be abruptly kicked out of when your eyes trace over words that should not be there. When this happens the flight of fantasy is spoilt, well no not just spoilt but sometimes actually completely wrecked.
Tip to writer:- ALWAYS USE WORDS THAT ARE IN KEEPING WITH THE STYLE OF THE BOOK.
Plot is decent although the ‘writer’ like so many other ‘writers‘ (apparently in an effort to show how great a wordsmith they are) throws in words that 1/ are rarely used in day to day conversation and as such are not really fully understood, they don’t fit the tone of that sentence so to most readers actually come as a “err what are they on about?” 2/ not only do not really fit either the writing style or the actual place they have been thrown into, but often as not they are not even the right words or best words to actually achieve the desired result.
I did finish the book so in reality I must have found it not too disruptive a read. But I must admit the further into the book I got the more I was wanting it to end, than wanting it to continue.
Simple things like the 'writer' putting 'insure' instead of 'ensure' yes it may have been a type error but the book contained enough of these errors, for example "snatch and grab" both snatch and grab are variations of a similar action but different enough to make the term "snatch and grab" absolute nonsense. To use if I remember correctly, yielded instead of wielded show insufficient proof reading from both writer and proof readers.
The story is a string of adventures that will take you to the top of Everest, to native Indian caves in the US and to Antartica where you will meet 800 year old Navajo and other Indian natives. It is a gripping tale that has you on the edge of your seat throughout. Highly readable and recommended.
