Well, it was a stretch to suspend disbelief, here, but it wasn't a horrible read. Matt, on summer holiday, finds his archaeologist father missing and a series of clues to his work. He teams up with his Aunt's wealthy employer and the man's enigmatic daughter to try and find his father and the secret he was working on - a lost treasure that includes arcane knowledge that could destroy or enslave the world. They travel to the jungles of Brasil and the snows of Denmark. I think it was shooting for a James Bond-y kind of action adventure, but the narration was stiff, we didn't really care much about the characters, and the supernatural/sci-fi element wasn't all that scary. Not horrible, but not outstanding.
