More than 75 years ago, five Nazi scientists embarked upon an expedition into the frozen Himalayas in search of the origins of the Aryan race. What they found instead was something beyond their wildest imaginations--a secret they would sooner take to their graves than risk releasing upon an unsuspecting world.
Now nearly a hundred years old, Johann Brandt, the lone surviving member of the original party, shares his discovery with Jordan Brooks, an evolutionary anthropologist who launches his own expedition into one of the most dangerous environments on the face of the planet in search of the evidence Brandt claims to have left behind.
If Brooks and his team hope to find the proof, they'll have to follow the historical footsteps of the Germans into the hunting grounds of a species that evolved in utter geographical isolation, and their only hope for survival lies in uncovering the truth about the ill-fated Nazi expedition...for those who don't learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.

Pure Adventure at a Documentary Pace
- Paul K. Ellis
Tense and thrilling read.
Definitely because it's the type of book that you could read again and again and discover new things about it.
I loved how much the author put into the story. It's well written and developed and the amount of detail was amazing.
Age old secrets collide in this thrilling story.
This was such a great listen. I started it and honestly had a hard time putting it down. It had the recipe of a great book anyway, Nazis, Himalayas and an expedition! Well I'm so glad to say that the author more than delivers.
The author puts so much into the story and it showed. The amount of detail and the vivid descriptions were amazing. I loved reading the scenes from the forest because it felt like I was there. He described them so perfectly.
The characters were all well developed and written. The plot was extremely fast paced and is told from the present and through a journal from the past. It was fascinating seeing the story unfold in both times.
In all a tense and thrilling read. I thought it was heading in a certain direction but the author threw in a twist that left me reeling. The whole way through I was on the edge of my seat and couldn't wait to see where it was going.
The audio of this was fantastic. The narrator did an amazing job of voicing the different characters. He drew me into the story and made it that much more enjoyable. I'd highly recommend you listen to this!!
