Seven Ancient Wonders - Jack West Jr. #1 (Matthew Reilly)

Seven Ancient Wonders (Jack West Jr. #1)
Matthew Reilly

Blurb: It's the biggest treasure hunt in history.

Nearly every nation on earth is involved. A headlong race to locate the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

The Capstone.

A magnificent golden capstone once sat atop the Great Pyramid at Giza. It was a source of immense power, capable of bestowing upon its holder absolute global rule for a thousand years...

But then in 323BC, the capstone was broken into seven pieces and hidden within the greatest structures of the age: monuments that would become known as the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World.

Now, with the coming of a rare solar event, the time has come to locate the pieces and rebuild the capstone.

An epic quest.

Everyone wants it. From the most powerful countries on earth, to gangs of murderous terrorists...and one daring coalition of eight small nations who think no single country should possess such an awesome power source.

And so, led by the mysterious Captain Jack West Jr, this determined group enters the fray, a global battlefield filled with viciously booby-trapped mines, stupendous Ancient Wonders, merciless evil forces, and an adventures beyond imagining.
