Summary

The 12th in the fantastic Wilde/Chase series sees Nina trying to follow in her late mother's footsteps as she and husband Eddie search for King Midas' legacy.

A return to Atlantis

The lost city has defined Nina Wilde's life. Her parents' obsession with Atlantis cost them their lives, but finding it brought Nina to her husband, Eddie Chase, and a series of archaeological treasures.

A secret codex

A decade later the International Heritage Agency needs their help to locate the Secret Codex, an account of ancient Atlantean explorer Talonor's journeys, thought to be located in the dangerous underwater ruins of Atlantis. Unable to resist one more adventure, the couple join the mission.

A king whose touch turns all to gold

But when a long-lost relative reappears in Nina's life, asking her to use the codex to find a hidden cave containing the secret of King Midas, she is unprepared for the devastation that follows. The promise of unlimited gold has aroused the greed of powerful and ruthless forces...and only Nina and Eddie stand in their way.

Juvenile

This is the first book by this author I have read. Correction: part read. I gave it my best shot, but I am afraid I just couldn't get past the juvenile plot( I presume the 4 and 5* ratings were made by 12 year olds), or the narration. I'm afraid that, even if the story had been brilliant, the dreadful accents, twee voices for female characters and the child, almost drove me crazy.
Finally, if one had just survived a mercenary attack and chase, would admonishing ones husband for swearing be the first words uttered?? I thought not.
A resounding thumbs down from me.

Usual chase and wilde

I enjoyed the book as I have with all other chase and wilde books but this one I feel wasn't as good at the previous entries. I feel the series is getting a bit tired now and coming towards it end.
