In a Stockholm museum, thieves steal an enormous Norse rune stone, but not before killing a security guard. When Nina Wilde, head of the International Heritage Agency (IHA), and her husband, ex-mercenary Eddie Chase, arrive to investigate, they are told a chilling story. A scholar has discovered that the stone may be one of two keys to finding the mythological site of Valhalla, where the Vikings predicted the world's final battle would begin. The second stone lies at the bottom of a Norwegian lake.
But when Nina and Eddie race to the scene, they're hit with a shocking surprise. Covert agents from around the world, including a ruthless mole in the IHA, are drawn into a lethal game. Then a disturbing secret surfaces from Eddie's past, involving a mission in Vietnam and a woman he tried to save. Suddenly suspicious of her own husband, Nina cannot afford to stop the perilous search for the artifact. For somewhere in a remote wilderness, two forces are about to converge: one that could save the world and one that could destroy it.
"A fast-paced adventure, full of beautiful scenery and interesting history, populated by characters you can cheer for (and against)." (Beauty in Ruins)

I always enjoy Nina and Eddie!
The stories are always wonderful but with this being my first audiobook version, I was pleased to find the narrator did justice to the characters and story.
Eddie has always been my favorite and continued to be so in this book. His colorful language and reactions are always entertaining!
Eddie and Nina books generally provide the following reactions for me: surprise, concern, jubilation, fear, and joy.
