'Greetings from the dead,' declares Maxwell Broadbent in the videotape he left behind after his mysterious disappearance. A notorious treasure hunter and tomb robber, Broadbent accumulated over half and a billion dollars' worth of priceless art, gems, and artefacts before vanishing -- along with his entire collection -- from his mansion in New Mexico. At first, robbery is suspected, but the truth proves far stranger: As a final challenge to his three sons, Broadbent has buried himself and his treasure somewhere in the world, hidden away like an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. If the sons wish to claim their fabulous inheritance, they must find their father's carefully concealed tomb. The race is on, but the three brothers are not the only ones competing for the treasure. With half a billion dollars at stake, as well as an ancient Mayan codex that may hold cure for cancer and other deadly diseases, others soon join the hunt and some of them will stop at nothing to claim the grave goods.

From the first few pages when 3 brothers discover their father has died and hidden his multi-million pound set of assets in the middle of the jungle this book moves at a terrific pace. All the brothers work against each other and then together in a race to get their hands on the estate, meanwhile other parties have an agenda - to get their hands on the most precious of all of the posessions - the codex, a book of medical importance to revolutionise the world..... Apart from a slightly wandering middle section this book is very well constructed, and also relatively believable in terms of the action and plot twists, in comparison to others of the same genre, such as Matthew Reilly and Lee Child etc. If you are a fan of Reilly or Child you'll definately enjoy this.
