The Schliemann Legacy
by D.A. Graystone
Schliemann dug up some artifacts in 19th Century Turkey proving that the City of Troy had actually existed. This is the inciting incident of the inciting incident bumping against a Nazi plot evolving into a conspiracy with a drug cartel, three different national intelligence agencies terrorists and maybe a kibbutz. Oh yes, someone who might have been associated with a Pope and a really disgusting information broker. Quite an involved plot with two leads vying for main protagonist, four heinous villains and a misogynistic dill-hole supervisor for one of the intelligence services.
This book was really fun, it had a lot of the elements of an action spy novel without really handing out the plot in the first half. The descriptive writing made me feel like I had lived for a week in most of the places the story passes through and was exceptionally well done during the hotter portions of the book.
Editing had a few issues that I think might have been rewrite flubs. They were few and didn’t detract from the story. I recommend this book to anyone who likes Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum or Eric Van Lustbader works.
