Book Synopsis

It is the biggest treasure hunt in history, and nearly every nation on earth is involved in a headlong race to locate the Seven Wonders of the ancient world.

Thousands of years ago, a magnificent golden capstone sat atop the Great Pyramid of Giza. It was a source of immense power, capable of bestowing upon its holder absolute global rule for a thousand years… But then, in 323 BC, the capstone was broken into seven pieces and spread to the corners of the Earth, hidden within the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Now, with the coming of a rare solar event, the time has come to locate the pieces and rebuild the capstone.

Everyone wants it. From the greatest, most powerful countries on Earth, to gangs of evil terrorists… and one daring coalition of eight small nations who think no single country should possess such an awesome power source. And so, led by the mysterious Captain Jack West Jr, this determined group enters into an adventure beyond imagining.

From the Colossus of Rhodes to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon; from the Lighthouse at Alexandria to the Great Pyramid itself; the author of Ice Station and Scarecrow takes you on the adventure of your life!
