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.
Good in some parts
I liked jake and the hawk. Lots of Measurements. That were a little bit boring.
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!
Thank you Matthew! Hooked from the first page and it keeps getting better each turn.
