    Description

    The Tomb Of Hercules is about Nina Wilde’s hunt for the tomb of Hercules and is a tale of adventure and intrigue.

    Summary of The Book

    A sequel to the author’s previous book, The Hunt For Atlantis, The Tomb Of Hercules is an electrifying new novel from the author, wherein the protagonist Nina Wilde, 29, an archaeologist and director of operations at IHA (an agency founded by the UN to protect the world’s ancient cultural heritage), visits a party on a yacht, given by one of the richest men in the world. There, she meets with a Shanghai based businessman who is also a non-executive director of IHA, and is visiting with his wife, Sophia.

    After Nina has an argument with her boyfriend, Eddie, she returns home and discovers through some archaeological books, that there is a possibility of the existence of a tomb that contains the remains of legendary hero and warrior, Hercules. So, she sets out to make the most significant historical discovery of the world to date. Accompanying Nina is her bodyguard-turned-boyfriend, Eddie Chase. However, they soon discover that they are not the only ones looking for the tomb. There are others who want to lay their hands on the tomb first, but for reasons different than those of Nina’s. They want to claim the huge riches that lay in the tomb of Hercules.

    Thus, through their hunt, Nina and Eddie travel around the world, onto a trail of conspiracies and corruption. They race through the world’s biggest and most famous cities (Switzerland, Shanghai, Botswana and London) to reach the tomb of Hercules before it is discovered by the wrong people. In order to save this ancient rich heritage, Nina and Eddie must always stay a step ahead of the others. However, as they progress and a beautiful woman joins the chase, all the rules of this hunt change. The book has earned rave reviews from several prestigious newspapers and journals including The Daily Express and The Bookseller.

    Not an evenly spaced story but good

    The starting is quite smooth. But what does not allow me to give a better rating is the unusually long fight sequences which literally go on for 7 to 8 pages which should have been cut shorted. Moreover too much information is exposed towards the end, which could have been evenly spaced in the book.

    The name is Chase, Eddie Chase..

    I totally agree with Anjana Murali here. This is a concoction of Indiana Jones, Mummy, National Treasure, Bond and many others.

    I said the same for "The Cult of Osiris" - http://www.flipkart.com/the-cult-of-osiris/p/itmczzvts6x8p9fh?pid=9780755354634

    When I started reading McDermott, it wasn't that fulfilling, since I had been comparing him to Dan Brown. But after this one, I have gradually come to appreciate McDermotts style of writing. He gives a full visual, HD thriller with great chases...

    The Tomb of Hercules - Andy McDermott

    A combination of Indiana Jones and Mummy. Throw in a lot of chases in countries all over the world, you get The Tomb of Hercules. I was desperate to finish reading this one. Too many chase sequences. Very vibrant imagination but nothing that we haven't already seen or heard.
