AN INCREDIBLE DISCOVERY. A MERCILESS FOE. A DEADLY RACE FOR THE TRUTH. Off a remote stretch of the Indonesian coast, archaeologist Nina Wilde has made an astounding discovery: an artifact that will rewrite everything that's known about human history. But before she can return to tell the world of her find, her ship is brutally attacked, her crew is ruthlessly murdered, and the artifact is stolen. Someone wants this secret to stay hidden-and will do anything to keep it that way. From the depths of the ocean to the Australian outback, to the halls of the United Nations, Nina and her fiance, ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, embark on a quest to stop the all-powerful Covenant of Genesis, a clandestine group sworn to keep Nina's discovery a secret. Nina and Eddie have faced tough adversaries before, but the relentless Covenant is always two steps ahead of them-and more than willing to kill again. Who will be the first to expose the truth-and the first to claim the most valuable archaeological prize of all time? Download and start listening now!

    " These books are alwas good, but I find myself skipping whole pages. Mr McDermott spends too much ime describing their battles or escapes "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip Cook | 1/15/2014

    " All of the series has been good, even without me reading the books in order. However, this is the first time I was disapointed I didn't read the book in order, there were 2 well written cliffhangers, but having read the next book I knew the end result so a little anti-climatic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginger | 11/9/2013

    " I did not like the female character. She is too wishy-washy. In one instance she is tough and then when her Chase is around she seems too "I'm a girl, protect me, I cannot do this without your help" She really got on my nerves. The story was good and interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Winnie | 7/7/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Artemis Eclectica | 2/17/2013

    " The only imagery I liked in this book was the moving statues ... This author does not write for the intelligent reader, he writes with the hollywood blockbuster in mind. A betrayal of instrumentality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Magiccats | 10/25/2012

    " Action packed and exciting. I could visualize the characters and scenes. Much more exciting than the tv shows that are on now. Loved it. Good mix of humor and action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jay | 10/5/2012

    " Would have given it a 2.5 if I could. I'll be generous and round up instead. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roger | 9/8/2012

    " Better than the first three books in this series as the author finally spent more time with the archeology discovery and less on hard to read troubled romantic angst. The action remains fast paced and somewhat unbelievable but keeps you reading until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Santiago Oleas | 1/18/2012

    " This is McDermott's fourth book and an improvement over the last. He has broken out of the template of his first three books slightly. This is an enjoyable read to help pass the time on a plane and nothing more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda Wallis | 9/15/2011

    " Rip-roaring adventure! He's no Clive Cussler, but it was still a page turner! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Marman | 6/10/2011

    " This is a pretty good action adventure. I'v been looking for a different author to read, so I'll try his others. It's worth a read although I think Matthew Reilly handles the genre better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry B | 11/19/2010

    " Another great adventure read from Andy McDermott. Fast past action and intrigue makes for an excellent book which I highly recommend. "

    " Read like a movie script for Action/Adventure Too busy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzi | 10/8/2010

    " Seems this book has two titles and covers: Also known as The Cult of Osiris. Had me very confused. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 5/6/2010

    " My first McDermott book, quite a romp in several different ways. Not usually my thing but I enjoyed it and will probably back order the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fred | 12/30/2009

    " McDermott has done it again. The Cult of Osiris is the new action packed Nina Wildes / Eddie Chase mystery. If you are looking for a cross between Indiana Jone and Dirk Pitt IClive Cussler series) than look no further. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikaela | 10/31/2009

    " I Loved it- LOVED IT! And does anyone else think that Nina's wierd behaviour and the final line of the story might hint at her being pregnant? Or is that just me...
