The breakneck action stems from an Egyptian sun cult which has hidden pieces of the capstone to the great pyramid in the husks of the seven wonders of ancient world, leaving clues that would flummox Indiana Jones. Here's the deal: whichever nation can locate and assemble the capstone in time for a cosmic event designed to end life on Earth will rule the world. Enter a ragtag team of commandos representing non-superpowers (read, in a Da Vinci Code context, not the European Union, the United States or the Vatican) who stand to lose in this eventuality. The team pits itself in a race against the formidable forces of the western world, cosmic calendar, and traps set by ancient-wonder-hider, Imhotep V. Complete with Mario-Brothers-style drawings, the book lurches from one great escape/victory/defeat until its final climax atop Cheops' Pyramid. It's a thrilling ride, perfect to enliven a lazy vacation or long plane ride. The real question is: Brad Pitt or Matthew McConaughey?--Jeremy Pugh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I really enjoyed reading SEVEN DEADLY WONDERS. I got involved in the story line. It was a little over my head at times but that didn't take away for the story. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Sarah Sheler

Mathews early books were fun to read, partly because he was self published and his boyish enthusiasm was infectious even though most of the stories were not believable. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Joseph Parkhurst

I have been a fan of Matthew Reilly since the age of 10. Fifteen years later I still find his work just as great as I did when I was a child. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Maurice Goodwin
