Publisher's Summary

When brilliant archaeologist Dilara Kenner is contacted by Sam Watson, an old family friend who says that he has crucial information about her missing father, Dilara abandons her Peruvian dig and rushes to Los Angeles to meet him. But at the airport, Sam speaks instead of Noah’s Ark—the artifact her father had long been searching for—and the possible death of billions. Before Sam can explain, he collapses. With his dying breath, he urges Dilara to find Tyler Locke—a man she’s never heard of.
Two days later Dilara manages to track down former combat engineer Tyler Locke on an oil rig off Newfoundland. Her helicopter transport goes down well short of the oil rig’s landing pad and Dilara and those aboard nearly drown. No sooner is Dilara safely on the rig than she convinces Tyler the crash was no accident. Tyler agrees to help her uncover the secret behind Noah's Ark and, more important, her father's disappearance. As the picture begins to come into focus, they realize they have just seven days to find the Ark before its secret is used to wipe out civilization once again.
With a chilling premise and a blistering pace, Boyd Morrison combines all the best elements of a blockbuster thriller with an intelligent and fascinating exploration of one of the Old Testament’s great mysteries.

great summer read

I enjoyed this book, as did my two daughters. The story was taut and exciting - the characters engaging; Tyler Locke reminded me a lot of Cussler"s Dirk Pitt, but since I love Pitt I don't mind the resemblance if Clive doesn't.
I also enjoyed the twist on Noah's Ark and the flood, strange, yet as plausible as any of the current theories out there.
I found this a perfect summer read - not too light,not too heavy - just right.

okay but not great

Pretty good overall concept, but as USUUAL, the military folks were stereotypical, and the egghead types were either evil geniuses or high minded academics. Could have been much better. I'm tired of "delta force" being portrayed as robots, etc. I'm not saying the authors have to be military experts BUT if they're going to make it part of the story they should be accurate, ex. over reliance on this or that kind of weapon that we ALL know about and comic book dialog between the soldiers, etc. Narration was fine, but I never let the narraration ruin a book for me.
