Freshly minted FBI agent Nicholas Drummond is barely out of his Quantico training when he and his partner, Mike Caine, are called to investigate a stabbing on Wall Street.
Their investigation, however, yields more questions than answers. It quickly becomes clear that the victim, John Pearce, was more than the naval historian and antiquities dealer he appeared to be. What Drummond doesn’t know is that buying and selling rare books was Pearce’s cover, and that he had devoted his life to discovering the whereabouts of a missing World War I U-boat concealing a stash of gold bullion, and an unexpected surprise that only raises more questions. When Drummond and Caine find both of Pearce’s adult children have disappeared, the case assumes a new sense of urgency. The FBI agents know their best lead lies in the victim’s cryptic final words— - "The key is in the lock." But what key? What lock?
The search for Adam and Sophia Pearce takes them on an international manhunt, which threatens to run them afoul of an eccentric billionaire industrialist with his own plans not only for the lost gold, but the creation of a weapon unlike anything the world has ever seen.

Brit in the FBI #2 makes you look forward to #3!!!
Would you listen to The Lost Key again? Why?
Yes, I would. I really enjoyed this book which integrated action, dialogue, intrigue, historical information, and humor. Narrators were great!
What other book might you compare The Lost Key to and why?
Book 1 flowed directly into Book 2 with more than just storyline. It continued with the same humor and drama. I enjoy the books of Catherine Coulter and find similarities with those of David Baldacci. There's substance to their entertaining and thoughtful books.
What about Renee Raudman and MacLeod Andrews ’s performance did you like?
They are always fantastic. Two of my favorites.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I definitely chuckled several times. The wit and humor were integrated into the story very well and performed by the narrators expertly. You could actually hear the interchanges among the characters as if you were there.
Any additional comments?
I hope that this progresses into a multi-book series.

Good Adventure, Solid Writing and Narration
This is very much an adventure, worthy of one of the Clive Cussler series. It is not a mystery. There are some very gory and graphic scenes, more so than Cussler.
Story is relatively believable. Bends, but does break, your credibility. Not much romance which is perhaps the appreciated influence of Ellison.
I would certainly read more but won't rush into it.
Female narrator was fine. Male voice was fine too. It is my personal preference to not bother with the second voice. He didn't have a big role and I'd find it jarring to occasionally hear the male voice. Obviously not the fault of the narrators.
