When the reclusive mathematician Jeremy Grady goes missing, it's up to his estranged brother Jack to find out why. His search leads him on a far-flung journey—from Brazil, India, Peru, and beyond—as he unravels the mystery that links the Seven Wonders of the World, and discovers that Jeremy may have hit upon something that's been concealed for centuries. With the help of scientist Sloane Costa, they discover a conspiracy to hide a road map to the Garden of Eden—and the truth behind a mythological ancient culture.

With a heart-pounding pace and panoramic backdrops, Seven Wonders is an electrifying read, and will be the first in a trilogy.

    Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Suspicion

  • “Seven Wonders delivers a page-turning global adventure with the high stakes and hard-charging characters we expect from a Ben Mezrich story. An exciting, compulsive read that will please thriller fans and history buffs.”

    Matthew Pearl, New York Times bestselling author of The Dante Club and The Technologists

  • “This novel is grounded in a thorough knowledge of classical literature, with skillful interweaving of plausible archaeological speculation, ancient mythology, and exciting modern adventure. Readers who enjoy artifact-seeking books with behind-the-scenes tours of real-life sites will be delighted.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Mezrich has written a rollicking adventure with a fantastic behind-the-scenes tour of some of the world’s most intriguing spots.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A fast-moving thriller involving murder, conspiracy, historical mystery, and the Seven Wonders of the World…Mezrich builds the characters in this made-up story the same way he builds them in his nonfiction: slowly, piece by piece, adding layers of motivation and complexity as the story progresses; and his writing here is as fluid as it’s ever been…Enjoyable and imaginative.”

    Booklist

  • “Narrator Luke Daniels unleashes the unfettered momentum necessary for this exciting globe-trotting adventure…Daniels embraces Mezrich’s cinematic text (it’s already earmarked to become a movie), and his snarky intensity carries the listener along Jack’s circuitous route. This volume is meant to be the first of a trilogy, although it reaches a satisfying conclusion in its own right. The energetic Daniels would be the perfect travel guide as this promising series rolls forward.”
