Drake, Allie, and Spencer reunite in Emerald Buddha, the second Drake Ramsey adventure - a quest to locate the lost treasure of the Khmer Empire, secreted away in a hidden temple somewhere in Myanmar. But nothing is as it seems, and their archaeological expedition soon turns deadly when desperate factions target them in order to safeguard a secret that could topple the US government.

"Slow Start But I Loved The Book"
Joe. I really liked his character. He made me laugh all the way thru the book.
Hmmmm......I would have been listening to Joe Ledger. This book was just fine the way it was. I enjoyed the whole thing. The tin foil hat twist that it took was awesome.
It's RAY PORTER people. What ISN'T there to like about Ray Porter. Sheesh.
Probably the Emerald Buddha.
I've read all the comments making jest of this series. I have to say I like it. It's not rocket science. It's entertaining as all get out. AND it's narrated by Ray Porter. I'm glad I came into the series late. The third book comes out in a couple weeks. I can't wait.
"Too much CIA and political intrigue."
Love the characters including the latest addition - Joe, but would prefer more treasure hunting and less political stuff. Ray Porter was great as usual but for me this book was definitely not as good as Ramsey's Gold. I found the political stuff too formula and boring.
"Fun read, but the characters are 2d"
These books are great beach reads, but you can't go in expecting a lot of character development. if actually say the female lead is becoming more damsel in distress than she was in the first book. And Drake is even more winey. But hey, the gun fights are well written, the pacing is good, and the stories wrap up nicely in the end.
I look forward to more Drake, Allie, and Spencer adventures. I so enjoyed the two I've read and cannot wait for more...please.:-)
"Entertaining, If Not Predictable"
I enjoyed the continued adventures of the characters, although they need to become multi-dimensional. The heroine has not lived up to the hype of the first novel of the series; this is a disservice to women. I could write a series of novels developing her character based on the strong women I have encountered in my personal and military life.
"Disappointing too much political"
No real treasure hunting. Too much political input that had no ending. Characters did speak much just regular narration. I like the first book so much but this wasn't up to par. Definitely would not recommend
"# 2 is really #2"
Kind of like when Back to the Future did all the movies together...gets watered down. It was OK, thank the Lord for Ray, I think it would have flopped without him
Eh. I would say Eh, first one was really cool, second one was OK
I have kids
keep it going with some umph! Then I will keep listening
It was so nice to listen to a book that is fun and adventurous without string after string of nasty talk. thanks to the arthur!!
"More spying than treasurehunting"
Not my cup of tea. Nontheless it is not a bad book. The general idea behind these books seems to be an action movie following a certain niché with a tad of drama and or romance. With that said I enjoyed the first book a lot more which had more of a focus on the mystery of this long lost treasure as well as the mystery of the main character an his relatives past. Which I felt was lacking in this book. Bu then again I only half-listened to most of the book since there was not much interesting going on.
I might give the third installment a look when it comes out. As long as Ray Porter does the narration.
