      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    Reminds one of Indiana Jones, Dan Brown and Wilbur Smith.

    A gripping storyline, combined with a fast pace. Plausible "ancient trap mechanisms" encountered by the expedition team. Misquita's signature style of introducing a lot of seemingly-unrelated "threads" in the first half of the book, and then connecting them all together eventually in the bigger plot. And yes, plenty of perfectly-scripted action scenes too. Despite the fact that the editing isn't perfect, and some of the characters are not given as much attention as they deserved, it is quite ...

    Another fast-paced, action-packed read

    After a great debut with Haunted, Douglas Misquita set the bar high, and his sophomore effort 'Secret of the Scribe' does not disappoint. When the book was announced, I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping for another book in the Ingram series (*hint*).
    The plot differs a lot from his first book, but it once again a fast paced page turner. The book is action-packed right from the get go. The book transports you to various locales, each vividly described. The basis of the book is the hunt fo...
