At the start of Morrison's debut, a routine quest thriller that attracted attention through Amazon's self-publishing Kindle program, combat engineer Tyler Locke executes a daring rescue after the helicopter carrying archeologist Dilara Kenner crash-lands in the sea near the floating oil rig where Tyler is working 200 miles off the Newfoundland coast. Dilara has come to enlist Tyler's help in finding Noah's ark, previously discovered by her father, Hasad Arvadi, who was murdered before he could announce this momentous find. Arvadi's killer, Sebastian Ulric, the head of a religious cult, plans to use a prion disease found on the ark as a weapon. Tyler, Dilara, and Tyler's sidekick, Grant Westfield, are all that stands between Ulric and the death of virtually every human on earth. Morrison breaks the story into several main sections involving various battles before finally honing in on what impatient readers will have been awaiting, the actual discovery of the ark. 5-city author tour.

An elderly archaeologist is murdered. Before he dies, he manages to speak a few cryptic words to a colleague, the beautiful Dilara Kenner, whose own father disappeared three years earlier while pursuing his life’s work, the search for Noah’s Ark. Now, it seems, the ark and the solution to her father’s disappearance are within Dilara’s grasp, as long as she and Tyler Locke, an adventurous engineer, can keep ahead of the shadowy people who want to use the ark for their own purposes. This is a solid, well-written thriller, full of action, villainy, and close calls. Fans of James Rollins, Matthew Reilly, and Douglas Preston: take note. --David Pitt

Anyway, the story was simply riveting! The pace was heart-stopping, not to mention the story actually gives me a completely alternative new perspective of the story of Noah's Ark, up to the point I was almost convinced by it. I don't know - I find at certain point it may be actually true! Who knows. Whilst, the setups and all the embedded complex challenges really blows my mind; talk about being a normal reader and a layman being exposed with the concerned subjects.
I really would like to recommend this novel to those who crave for lightning-paced adventures with trailing bad guys only God knows how much insanity is in their minds, and those who seek alternative views of historical legends and myths that may possibly turn the tables upside down.
Kudos to Boyd Morrison!
