Publisher's Summary

A lost civilization. A dangerous quest. A deadly secret....
It's one of history's most enduring and controversial legends: the lost city of Atlantis. Archaeologist Nina Wilde is certain she's solved the riddle of its whereabouts - and with the help of reclusive billionaire Kristian Frost, his beautiful daughter, Kari, and ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, she's about to make the most important discovery in centuries.
But not everyone wants them to succeed: a powerful and mysterious organization will stop at nothing to ensure that a secret submerged for 11,000 years never resurfaces. More than one would-be discoverer has already died in pursuit of Atlantis's secrets - including Nina's own parents. Failure isn't an option.
From the streets of Manhattan to the Brazilian jungle, from a Tibetan mountaintop to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, Nina and Eddie will race against time - and follow a trail of danger and death to a revelation so explosive, it could destroy civilization forever.

Tedious

What disappointed you about The Hunt for Atlantis?

The heroes were initially developed well but somewhere along the line they were all lobotomized. The plot dragged along because our heroes fell into every obvious trap there was. The characters themselves were not too bad and that was the only thing that kept me going to the end. I have read other McDermott pieces and was disappointed.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Hunt for Atlantis?

There are too many to mention and all of the actions scenes were painfully long and predictable once you realized the formula.


Any additional comments?

Do not waste a credit on this one folks.

No Maturity

I've listened to the first half and there have been many times I felt myself becoming less intelligent for listening to the dialog. Each time I felt like turning it off, but it seemed it was still better than nothing. I've finally come to the realization that "nothing" IS better than this. The characters act like what you'd expect from 14 year-old boys.

The story itself is entertaining, but I can't get past the dialog.
