Publisher Description

"Greetings from the dead," declares Maxwell Broadbent on the videotape he left behind after his mysterious disappearance. A notorious treasure hunter and tomb raider, Broadbent accumulated over half a billion dollars' worth of priceless art, gems, and artifacts before vanishing, along with his entire collection, from his mansion in New Mexico.

At first, robbery is suspected, but the truth proves stranger: as a final challenge to his three sons, Broadbent has buried himself and his treasure somewhere in the world, hidden away like an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. If the sons wish to claim their fabulous inheritance, they must find their father's carefully concealed tomb.

The race is on, but the three brothers are not the only ones competing for the treasure. With half a billion dollars at stake, as well as an ancient Mayan codex that may hold a cure for cancer and other deadly diseases, others soon join the hunt; and some of them will stop at nothing to claim the grave goods.

The best-selling coauthor of such page-turning thrillers as Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities, Douglas Preston now spins an unforgettable tale of greed, adventure, and betrayal.

tehBrookie ,

Good Book. Horrid Narration!

The narrator is a tard. He mispronounces quite a lot of words, and is not gifted in the "ability to do many and varied voices" arena...
I would reccomend the book over the narrated shortened audio book

Leighta_Greenleaf ,

As they say, "gripping"

A wonderful novel filled with excitement, mystery, revenge, a little romance...and more than a few surprises.
Two words: "Hairy Bugger"
