Publisher's Summary

After briefly eluding Yassir Ali's ruthless assassins in England, Nick, Marie, and Ishi have fled north, where they hope to track down a forgotten cavern in the Highlands of Scotland. The cavern is linked to the Ambrosius Amulet, and is said to contain the greatest treasure of gold, jewels, and other artifacts ever amassed by the ancient druids....

Finding this sacred place won't be easy - especially when those trying to kill the forlorn trio are hot on the trail again. Meanwhile, Nick and his cohorts' search is limited to details from a conversation Marie had with her father prior to his murder a year earlier. His last wish was for her to complete the task he couldn't and was the main reason Marie hired Nick as her archeologist guide: to first find the Temple of the Jaguar in the Honduran jungles, and then eventually move on to the United Kingdom to complete Daddy's failed quest.

Now, after being chased relentlessly through Europe by Yassir Ali's hitmen, they finally possess the key to finding the druid treasure. Yet, the Ambrosius Amulet can only tell them when they have found the right location. The task of locating the correct "marked" Scottish hillside must be handled on their own, using natural means.

Relying on Marie's memory of landmarks and coordinates given by her father, the task of searching Loch Ness, Loch Lomond, and Loch Morar quickly becomes a hazardous affair. Will one of these famed locations prove to be home to this fabled treasure of the early Brits? Or, will this be one myth that can't be solved, either by fate or bullets from a ruthless enemy closing in?

These questions and more are waiting to be answered in the Secret of the Loch....

Quite the Adventure

The story of Nick, Ishi, and Marie instantly drew me in. This was my first Aiden James novel and my first Nick Caine novel, but I was very easily able to pick up the overall themes of the previous Nick Caine novels. A fast paced audio book I was instantly engaged with their trip though England and Scotland in search of Marie's father's treasure.

It may have been my first novel by James, but won't be the last.

I received this audiobook in exchange for my honest review.

Excellent Adventure!

Any additional comments?

I just finished the audio version of this book, and what an excellent adventure it was! Nick Caine, Ishi and Marie are back and finding trouble wherever they go. This was quite a task that they set for themselves this time and it was fun to go along for the ride. Yasser Ali's evil assassins are still on their trail, which hampers their ability to search for a specific cave in the Highlands of Scotland.
The audiobook was narrated by Graydon Schlichter, and he did a masterful job. The irreverence of Nick Caine really shines through with his narration, and the voices are easy to distinguish throughout the story. I am already looking forward to the audio version of the next book in the series!
