If you like adventure, fast-paced action, heroes and villains and the descriptive beauty and articulation of scenes, characters and local color then this book is for you. I was thrilled as I rode the roller coaster of good versus evil from The Sudan through Istanbul, Bali and finally, Pamir, the resting place of the conclusion of this thrilling novel. Jeremiah Courage and his team of specialists are in search of The Tablets of Destiny, the key to Abdullah El-Fahd’s grip on the world. With them, he holds unlimited power. Without them, he is just another terrorist blowhard. Their mission to find the evil ruler is complicated by major disasters that regularly erupt and explode causing the team to race against time to not only stop El-Fahd but to prevent the planet from destruction.
I won’t give away the ending, you’ll have to figure that one out yourself, but Jeff Melton has pieced together a tale worthy of Indiana Jones and other heroic sagas. Will the hero survive? Will his spectacular team succeed? Will they finally possess the Tablets of Destiny? Only one way to find out…start reading! Well done, Mr. Melton.
