Kurt is a great guy, has a fun sidekick, lots of NUMA people make an appearance (I LUV MAX!) and the plot rocks. I like the historical and archeology details. My only complaint is the chauvenism of the genre. I mean, the whole Bond-esque feel to the women. They all have brains and degrees, but you still get the feeling the bod comes first. My only "grrr" moment. Seems to be universal enough to be a genre requirement? I find that sad. Book was fun, but the "helpless little woman" aspect made me sigh

Jordan Wareham I agree, I understand when he's on about how Austin looks at her in that way, as Austin has the "hots" for her, but it all he seems to go on about.
