Product description


This first new series entry in more than two years spotlights the evolving partnership between Gideon Crew and his new partner Amy.

-- "Barnes&, editorial review"

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)"

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"

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"

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"

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 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"

Product Description

Gideon Crew – brilliant scientist, master thief – is living on borrowed time. When he’s handed an eyebrow-raising mission by his mysterious employer, Gideon has no reason to refuse. His task? To steal a page from the priceless Book of Kells, now on display in New York City, 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, treasure that could, perhaps, save Gideon’s life.
