A sunken treasure. An ancient Biblical artifact. A mystery as old as humankind. On January 25, 1829, the Portuguese brig Dourado sank off the coast of Indonesia, losing its cargo of priceless treasures from the Holy Land. One of these lost relics holds the key to an ancient mystery. But someone does not want this treasure to come to light. When her father is murdered while searching for the Dourado, Kaylin Maxwell hires treasure hunter and former Navy Seal Dane Maddock and his partner Uriah "Bones" Bonebrake, to locate the Dourado, and recover a lost Biblical artifact, the truth behind which could shake the foundations of the church, and call into question the fundamentally held truths of human existence. Join Dane and Bones on a perilous adventure that carries them from the depths of the Pacific to ancient cities of stone as they unravel the mystery of the Dourado.

Plot 3 out 5 stars – predictable pathway

Characters 4 out of 5 stars – I thoroughly enjoy the relationship between the main characters the tit for tat brings humor to the serious story line.

The story is like a Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt adventure and that is why I selected it for reading. It is not to the same quality as Clive Cussler early days but is in par with the later adventures of Dirk Pitt. They are fun novels and great light read.

Over all 4 out of 5
