Editorial Review

From Publishers Weekly

In Golemon's so-so third Event Group thriller (after 2007's Legend), the shadowy U.S. government organization specializing in paranormal assignments, led by military maverick Col. Jack Collins, must stop the descendants of 2,000 children who survived the sinking of Atlantis 11,000 years earlier from seizing a key that will enable them to manipulate the tectonic plates of the earth's crust. After Collins's team finds a map of the lost continent during a raid on a mansion in Katonah, N.Y., the Atlanteans retaliate by slaughtering the FBI agent working with Collins as well as Event Group members manning the storage facility where the raid's spoils were being studied. The formulaic fight scenes, betrayals and 11th-hour rescues are on a par with the implausible premise. Even the dramatic conclusion will leave many readers unaffected.(Aug.)

From Booklist

Golemon’s third novel in the Event Group series proves to be his best yet. The Event Group is a secret military organization that specializes in the retrieval and study of ancient technology. The premise this time is elaborate: more than 10,000 years ago, the citizens of Atlantis developed a weapon so powerful that it destroyed their civilization and led to the story of Noah’s flood. The device they used is now in the hands of a society that traces their lineage back to the dynasty of Caesar. Colonel Jack Collins and his team must stop the group from using the superweapon and unleashing massive devastation. The resulting tale is a mix of the James Rollins action-heavy adventure, the military gadgetry of Tom Clancy, the pacing of the television series 24, and the conspiracy theories devoured by fans of the radio show Coast to Coast AM. For no-frills adventure fans with a taste for over-the-top plots. --Jeff Ayers --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
