AN ANCIENT WARRIOR. AN INCREDIBLE TREASURE. A LETHAL ENEMY. It's the opportunity of a lifetime-the chance to prove that a tomb containing the remains of the legendary hero Hercules actually exists. If American archaeologist Nina Wilde can locate it, it will be the most important historical find ever unearthed. But as Nina and her ex-SAS bodyguard, Eddie Chase, begin their search, it's clear that others want to find the tomb-and the unimaginable riches within-and will do anything to get there first. Who will find the tomb of Hercules first, and what fantastic treasure does it hold? From New York to Shanghai, from Switzerland to the diamond mines of Botswana, Nina and Eddie must stay one step ahead of their enemies in a race to solve a mystery as ancient as civilization itself. But when a beautiful woman from Eddie's past joins the hunt, all the rules change-and in this life-and-death game, their next move may be the most dangerous one of all.

    " Walaupun buku ini tidak seseru buku pertamanya, namun kisah Nina dan Eddie yang masih berpetualang dalam kumpulan-kumpulan fakta sejarah, tetap saja memikat. Dan aku tak sabar menanti buku ketiganya. Petualangan mereka belum berakhir. XD "

    " It was a bit repetitive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommy | 1/26/2014

    " This was a quick read because the main characters seemed to always be fighting their way out of some kind of jam. When they weren't in that situation, they were either arguing with each other or making up. Also, the title of the book, "The Tomb of Hercules", was somewhat misleading. The actual finding of the tomb only happened over a short span of the book and the real story line had nothing to do with the tomb. However, I will continue to read the rest of the books in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn Simons | 1/8/2014

    " Another fun action/adventure story from the creative mind of Andy McDermott. Wilde and Chase are at it again getting themselves into life-threatening situations. Good read...looking forward to "The Secret of Excalibur". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane Stafslien | 12/26/2013

    " This was a bit of a mixed bag for me. I really enjoyed the non-stop action and the character interactions but was hoping for more substance regarding the archaeological/historical aspects of Hercules Tomb to be integrated into the narrative. Hoping this will be remedied in the next book of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claude Dancourt | 12/15/2013

    " I would have like a little more on the treasure hunt. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beckie | 11/21/2013

    " Loving a good mystery/suspense story, it seemed like legends and myths would make great fodder for a series; but alas, it falls disappointingly short. Great concept that got lost in the telling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Winnie | 10/23/2013

    " The adventures of Eddie Chase and Nina Wilde are now something I look forward to - exciting, fast-paced and the subject matter bound to appeal to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi Niklas | 10/19/2013

    " It was fast moving and at times felt like a Mission Impossible movie - lots of action, bombs and car chases. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheryl Purnell | 9/26/2013

    " while the descriptions are worthy of a coragraghed action flick, they add to the feeling the book is dragging. plus, characters that just wont die are so terminator... "

    " Ok I just couldn't do it. I was so bored reading this book. I had hoped that McDermott's writing would improve in book 2, but alas it did not so I'm shelving this one indefinitely. "

  • 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...
