APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Poisonous pools, croc-infested swamps and booby-trapped passages are the order of the day as action-adventure author Matthew Reilly jumpstarts the thrill-a-minute Jack West Jr. series. Competing teams have just a week to swashbuckle through seven iconic landmarks in search of capstones that could ensure world domination. Our military-trained archeologist hero thrives on such globetrotting intrigue, and we follow his charismatic lead through satisfying cliffhangers and many surprise twists. In classic Reilly style, this book sets up a high-stakes adventure that pays off every step of the way.

Throughly enjoyed reading this book
I am probably being picky - the use of measurements switched between imperial and metric gets a bit confusing sometimes, lucky I was brought up to understand both systems!

Non stop action from page 1.
It would usually take me weeks to read a book of 400 odd pages, but Matthew Reilly is an amazing story teller and I simply can’t put his books down, it never takes me more than a day or two to read his books, this is no different. Another masterpiece by Australia’s greatest author.
