Padraig Plunkett loves history and has devoted his adult life to it. Now in Argentina, he hopes to find something in the forgotten Ruins of Quilmes.
Along with his intern, Sofia, and Argentine government representative, Arianna, they discover more than any of them could have ever imagined.
After emails of his discovery are intercepted on their way to news agencies, the excavation site is quickly shut down by a group of men with many questions and few answers.
Nationalist, criminal organizations, and political alliances reaching back to the civil war all find themselves racing to find what may have one day been kept at the Ruins of Quilmes.
But are they searching for themselves, or is the Shneym-asar pulling the strings again?

A bit messy for what it is
Candidly, this book has some issues, and unless my "friend" was a big fan of the genre, or the reader, I couldn't recommend it heartily. Maybe in a pinch.
It stumbled from plot arc to plot arc, had very little probability, and the scenarios seemed more pure dramatic devices than true story telling art. Not his best effort to be sure.
Well like all thrillers soaked in geographical history, it did inspire me to do some personal research.
This is not necessarily a bad offering, just not the best to date from this author. The performance is solid, with the caveat that there are a number of accents that could be complex listening for some people. I can give this a nominal recommendation, with reservations.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast.
