A Quinn Adventure book 1
by Jennings Wright
-From The Back Cover-
An impenetrable safe is breached and a secret artifact is stolen. Containing information that could change the course of the world, its desperate owner sends Gideon Quinn, his head of security, and Gideon's wife Rei, an art preservationist, to fin it at any cost. What they discover is a clue to the lost throne of King Solomon, the real object of the theft. They are thrust out on an adventure that leads them halfway around the world. Following letters left by a Jesuit in 1681, they must weave through ancient sites along the Portuguese Spice Route, keeping ahead of a secret militant order that is determined to be them to Solomon's Throne.
Filled with fast paced action and having broad appeal, Solomon's Throne is an ingenious treasure hunt adventure that sweeps the reader around the globe in a race against time.
This book was a bit like a married Indiana Jones minus the snakes, booby traps, and melting people.
Action and adventure. Exotic locations and historical facts. Chases and mysterious clues. And some very strange dudes dressed in black. What more could you ask for?
This book features some historical tidbits from little known locations. I had never heard of the Portuguese Spice Route or the Stone Houses before. The locations and history mentioned are sending me on a search for more information, I'd really like to learn more about these fascinating places.
This will sound a bit strange, but the thing I liked best about Solomon's Throne was the author's writing style. She wrote more like a man, much like the famous Montana author Dorothy M. Johnson. Some women can't write action/adventure and some can and Jennings Wright is a woman who can.
