“The Lost Island, the third novel to feature master thief and brilliant
scientist Gideon Crew, is another clever and compelling tale from
Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child…The stellar writing that readers
expect from Preston and Child is still in abundance, and they balance
the line between page-turning suspense and ancient history.”
— Associated Press
“The latest Gideon Crew novel offers fast-paced action, intriguing characters, and an adventure-filled plot. The attention to detail in the initial heist scene adds tension that continues throughout this thriller.”
— RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“This first new series entry in
more than two years spotlights the evolving partnership between Gideon Crew and
his new partner Amy.”
— Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review
“Another intelligent tale by the
longtime writing partners.”
— Sacramento Bee
"[Preston and Child] always go
big in their storytelling. The Lost
Island is no exception.”
— Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“When it comes to novels by
this famous duo, the things all readers can expect are excitement, intrigue,
and a story that will not soon be forgotten…The ‘Crew’ stories move at a
super-fast pace and never leave the reader wanting…[This is] yet another
perfectly unforgettable Preston and Child creation.”
— Suspense Magazine
“Continuing the ‘Gideon Crew’
series of adventure novels, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child add another
fast-paced thriller, blending real science with tension, terror, and twists…While
David Collins is a master of enunciation, his narration sounds slightly flat—but
still compelling. His vocals for Gideon are understated, allowing the character
to command respect through his words and actions rather than his tone.
Similarly, Collins gives the crippled Eli Glinn a calculated menace. Collins
delivers perhaps his best performance with Amy, Gideon’s new assistant, whose
high, enigmatic tones slowly reveal the complexity of her character.”
“Preston and Child’s sparkling third Gideon Crew novel…Gideon refreshingly doesn’t fit the superhero mold, and the enigmatic Amy is more than his equal in daring and intelligence. Fans of H. Rider Haggard and Edgar Rice Burroughs will find a lot to like.”
— Publishers Weekly
“Preston and Child sail Gideon Crew into his third adventure…[The authors] crank up their descriptive powers…[and] stretch the boundaries of the action-adventure novel.”
— Kirkus Reviews
The action zigzags like an out-of-control rocket toward a double-deceptive conclusion.
