The Hunt for Atlantis

Andy McDermott, Author . Bantam $7.99 (514p) ISBN 978-0-553-59285-6

McDermott’s debut, already an international bestseller, raises the bar to please adventure junkies who prefer to mainline their action. Ten years after learning that her parents had perished in an avalanche while tracking the fabled lost city of Atlantis, archeologist Nina Wilde decides to pick up where they left off. A man claiming to represent philanthropist Kristian Frost phones to invite Nina to meet him and discuss financing her quest, but he’s up to no good. Fortunately, British bodyguard Eddie Chase really does work for Frost—who really does want to finance her mission—and he rescues Nina and gets the ball rolling. Distinguishing good guys from bad guys proves harder than finding Atlantis, but that won’t stop readers from enjoying the adrenalin rush as Nina and Eddie tag-team their way through nonstop high-octane action scenes.
