Hard going in places, mainly because it's covering similar ground. Interesting ending however, so will read the next one to see where that takes us....
The majority of this story takes place in the jungles of Venezuela, Columbia and Peru as they fight off mercenaries, revolutionaries and drug dealers in search of El Dorado.
Eddie is being childish again. He needs a big spanking (and I don’t mean the good kind). You’d think ...more

Oh, he wrote a quality book in "Empire of Gold." The adventure captured me from first page to last. The problem is, the story goes beyond the last page -- way beyond. Into a whole other book. Those hoping to read "Empire" as a standalone -- it is summer after all and there are concerts, sporting events and vegging on the porch with your favorite beverage -- prepare for disappointment. Consider this a preca ...more

You start off with the story set up to be about some fancy statues, the whole book is about tracing the missing statue in the set and then on the last page, the story isn't resolved and you're left with essentially a forward sell for the next book.
In my mind a good series allows you to read a single book and enjoy it, yet read them all and benefit from a continuing set of plots & sub plots wat ...more
Annoyingly, the book ends in a sort of cliffhanger. I understand authors want ...more
Anyway ... sure, sure ... the story is great. But if you have been enjoying the main characters in these (8 so far?) books, this one is a fantastic read. I looooove where this book leaves off.
My reviews for McDermott's Chase/Wilde books are going to pretty much t ...more
By the time I got through the opening set years before the events of the actual story, I felt bogged down enough to set the book aside. I tried reading further but just couldn't. I hope that at some point I'll be able to pick the book back up and finish it and then amend this rating.
