Publisher's Summary

The fabled Elephant Graveyard has been discovered. It contains enough ivory to make Ethiopia a wealthy nation. But the cave contains more than physical riches - it also holds the means to control the world. Fifteen scientists enter the cave. Only one leaves.
Jack Sigler, Callsign: King (field leader of the covert, black ops Chess Team) receives a cryptic text from Sara Fogg, his girlfriend and CDC "disease detective". A catastrophic disease has been reported in Ethiopia's Great Rift Valley, but Fogg suspects something more is going on. Her suspicion is confirmed when King's arrival in Africa is met by a high speed assassination attempt.
As King fights against two competing, high-tech mercenary forces, each struggling for control of the deadly discovery, Fogg disappears. Working with the surviving member of the science team that made the discovery, King begins a search for Fogg and the source of the potential plague that takes him back to the Great Rift Valley, back to the Elephant Graveyard, and brings him face-to-face with modern man's origins.

A great listen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this audiobook and have. My reason being, that it is a high quality recording of a fun, action-packed story.


What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

Jeffery Kafer does a great job bringing these characters to life, the inflections in his voice work really well. I had never listened to an audio book before and now, thanks to a great story and a fantastic job by Kafer, I wonder what ever took me so long. I look forward to listening to more.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely, I couldn't turn it off until the end, it had me transfixed.


Any additional comments?

This book was my introduction to Jeremy Robinson and I am so glad for it as he is a great, fun writer. I would urge people to read/listen to the 3 Chess Team books before listening to this as it does follow on, but, it can also be enjoyed as a stand alone. It has all the action that you expect to find from these 2 authors, great characters, great storyline - it makes you want to keep reading even after the last page.

Any additional comments?

I listened to the audio version of this book, and once again it was a wonderful experience. The story was intense but a lot of fun, and of course Jeffrey Kafer's narration brought it to life.
I enjoy the storyline involving the elephant graveyard and liked having some familiar characters back. I am anxious to get the next book in this series, hopefully the audiobook again.
