A hiker finds a journal deep inside a glacier that was lost during World War II. On its frozen pages are etched the secret locations of treasures lost since the 1940s. But something more ominous is scribed in the journal - something that threatens the Presidency of the United States.
Jake Pendleton and his new partner, Francesca Catanzaro, work for an "off the books" intelligence firm and are summoned to the White House where they are instructed to locate and acquire the book. Jake soon realizes there are others on a quest to find it as well. Others who will kill to get to it first.

Now one of my New Favorite Authors
Action. Suspense. Fast-paced.
Again , Scott Brick brings life to any story.
This is a really good follow up to "The Toymaker". I have listened to all three in the series consecutively and can not wait for Chuck Barrett to write another. I figured out the mystery about 1/2 way through but the ride to the end was thrilling
Career as a mortuary employee on hold...
I don't listen to audio books more than once. At least, I try to avoid it.
Only if you like these types of sprawling action thrillers. It is classic for the genre, but not exceptional.
The resolution in the mortuary was fascinating, as much for the drama and family politics as anything else.
Some of the graveyard scenes are fascinating.
The story is a bit messy, the characters clear but sometimes illogical. The background is interesting, and the resolution is clean. On balance, a decent offering in this thriller genre. The Scott Brick performance is good ( although sometimes abit flat ) and, on balance, this isn't a bad use of a credit.
