First they tried to kill him. Then they took his daughter
. . . Anthropologist Simon Dracup knows that his only hope of finding her alive lies within the pages of his grandfather's diary, the record of a near century old expedition to Mount Ararat, legendary resting place of the great Ark of Noah. When the CIA pays him a visit Dracup learns that something was found on the Ark. Something priceless. Now its owners have taken it back, but they want revenge and Dracup is their prime target . . . Dracup finds himself plunged into a desperate battle for survival as he hunts for evidence that will lead him to the sinister Korumak Tanri, but even he could not have predicted the shocking truth about the mysterious cult and the ancient secret they are sworn to protect . . .

The characters come to life as the story unfolds. Couldn't stop listening and stayed awake through the night to finish!
The tree of life.
The story was very slow and not really believable.
The characters were two dimensional clichés.
I might have persevered to the end (just to get my moneys worth) had it not been for the truly dire narrator with his awful irritating impressions of American accents that come straight out of British 'B' movies from the 50's. It would have been much more acceptable if he'd just read the whole thing in his own voice, as it now stands I will, in future, avoid anything he narrates - which is a shame as it precludes me from listening to several books I might have otherwise been interested in.
One to avoid!
This book is WOW! If you enjoy archeological stories, this is a must read. I turned it off long enough to sleep!
Safe for all ages. No bad words or explicit sexual content.
"Could have been such a great story"
This was a great plot and story-line. I don't want to give all of this away to the prospective reader. However, there were some ridiculously unbelievable events that happened in the story that just wrecked any attempt at realism. If you can ignore these items, you will enjoy the book.
"Best Audio Book Ever!"
Yes, in fact I consider this book the BEST book I have ever listened too. When I read one of the reviews from someone who said they stayed up all night to listen to it I was quite skeptical, but I found I was listening to it late at night AND during the day. This book, in my opinion could have been at least three full books of thrilling mysteries. It was totally fascinating & had me dumbsruck with guessing what would come next which did keep coming like water over a waterfall - non stop. i think Indiana Jones paled in comparison.
I can't just pick one & if I were to list them all I would be giving away the book. And we do not want that now do we? All I can say us if other people want a wonderful, exciting expereince with an audible book....THIS IS IT.
His performance was masterful & indeed flawless. He surely made this audible book a wonderful experience. He went on top of the list of my favorite narrators. Which makes it hard to listen to other narrators who are less enjoyable..
Absolutely, in fact I almost did. The author has my praise for writing such a magnificent book. It was so mesmerizing it gsve the word a new meaning.
I jusr can't say enough good about this book. Thank you Scott Hunter!!!
