Gideon Crew—brilliant scientist, master thief—is living on borrowed time. When his mysterious employer, Eli Glinn, gives him an eyebrow-raising mission, he has no reason to refuse. Gideon’s task: steal a page from the priceless Book of Kells, now on display in New York City and protected by unbreakable security.

Accomplishing the impossible, Gideon steals the parchment—only to learn that hidden beneath the gorgeously illuminated image is a treasure map dating back to the time of the ancient Greeks. As they ponder the strange map, they realize that the treasure it leads to is no ordinary fortune. It is something far more precious: an amazing discovery that could perhaps even save Gideon’s life.

Together with his new partner, Amy, Gideon follows a trail of cryptic clues to an unknown island in a remote corner of the Caribbean Sea. There, off the hostile and desolate Mosquito Coast, the pair realize the extraordinary treasure they are hunting conceals an even greater shock—a revelation so profound that it may benefit the entire human race … if Gideon and Amy can survive.

Quotes & Awards

  • 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.”

    AudioFile

  • “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
