This is the second book in the series of the VanOps thriller, where we meet Maddy Marshall a software expert, who is faced with a task to decipher a code before extremists trigger a high tech apocalypse.
A Russian thief steals an ancient star chart, and Maddy along with her Boyfriend and twin, will then go on a hunt to find the treasure.
The story takes us on some fabulous locations, such as Mexico, the Middle East and the Philippians and in each we learn a puzzle , making things very cryptic, leading clues to each new place and as a reader, this is a brilliant way of getting us involved in the treasure hunt along with the characters. The atmosphere is built up brilliantly and the book is beautifully written.
The ancient history, combined with thriller, suspense and action is very well played out and would truly recommend.
