This is a boys own thriller. Lots of gadgets and strange sounding military equipment. It is fast paced and very easy to read almost simplistic, especially if you like lots of short sentences, many of which begin with 'And'. However as a romp it was a quick ( I read it over 2 days) and the idea was interesting. It was a shame none of the characters were developed beyond stereotypes, the beautiful and glamerous allegedly intelligent(?!) archaeologist was reduced to a screaming, arm holding and general eye candy adjunct to the men...... so not one for the women then!
