Publisher's Summary

A lethal secret society. A priceless stolen treasure. A map worth killing for.

Relic smuggler and expert thief Guy Bodie is a tough man in a dangerous world, loyal only to his elite team of five. But when one of them betrays him, landing Guy in a hellish Mexican prison, he finds himself making a bargain with the most unlikely new ally: the CIA.

There is a catch. In return for being released from jail, Guy must work for the CIA, helping them solve the most audacious heist in history. As Guy knows, six of the Seven Wonders of the World have long been lost. But with the help of the CIA, he learns that the destroyed Statue of Zeus still exists - and it’s in the hands of a powerful secret society.

A prize worth killing for is also worth dying for, and this one has left a trail of bloodshed that goes back centuries. Can Guy and his new team - a group of renegades chosen for their unique skills - hunt down the legendary relic once and for all...before they are added to its list of victims?

Revised edition: This edition of The Relic Hunters includes editorial revisions.

Very bad Dan Brown knockoff

There were so many of aspects of this story that were horrible. From the main premise of chasing after laptops to destroy emails to the cheesy dialogue and less than great narrator... Just read a different book..

clichés, timings all wrong

Badly written. Unbelievable, shallow characters, riculous dialogs, illogical plot. I forced myself to finish it, wish I hadn't. Reader was ok.

Imagine action scenes narrated by a robot...

I really wanted to like this story, however, I think the author moved along too quickly without developing the characters or the conspiracy, and focused more on the play-by-play blows within each fight scene instead of the overall adventure. I felt like I was listening to a narration of a series of fights strung together by some lame banter between the thieves. I think what made the overall experience that much worse for me was the narrator. These action scenes were read with the same enthusiasm as if he were reading pages from a dictionary. ...Bueller?...Bueller? I found myself drifting at times. I never leave audiobook reviews - in fact, this is my first... I just felt compelled to leave one for the hours I made myself sit through this narration with the hopes it would get better.

Another hunt for *Spoiler* Yay!

I wasn't sure what to expect at first. The book statts through the eyes od a sinister man and immediately understand the seriousness of the hunt. Its a fun story with a diverse group. Each member is a unique character and the way they interact is always fun. Reminded me of my time in the military a little. The action is fun and relatively steady without too much need for suspension of disbelief. I recommend this book if you like good characters, conspiracies in history and a fair amount of action. Good audiobook.

Good action

Interesting concept in story. Illuminati also a good subject to speculate on. And relic hunters in modern day is a fun combination. Enjoyable listen.

Felt 'B' rate

The first audiobook I've stopped about a third into. The story was unbelievable and the narrator wasn't compelling.

Poor choice of narrator

This is a book by an English author, the least the narrator could have done was to learn the correct pronunciation of words and places, especially as two of the settings were in England itself. I am a big fan of this author and have read all of his books. I am also a big fan of audible but their choices, when it comes to appropriate narrators, are often very poor. I will not purchase the audible version of The Atlantis Cipher and am seriously considering sending this one back.

Great story, mediocre narrator

I enjoyed the story and the characters but it was simply too distracting when the narrative referred to a number of characters as being British but the narrator had a strong American accent when playing them. Another distracting annoyance was the mispronunciation of very easy and simple place names.

davinci code for teens

weak characters, feels like a made for TV movie starring Nicholas Cage. Lacks the quality of a Dan Brown story.
