My notable gripe is that it seems the author wrote this from his den in England, and used locations that he was completely unfamiliar with. A lot goes on around the town of Kanab. Well I've been there. There certainly aren't a lot of "back streets, many houses, and lots of commercial establishments". There's one road through town, with 2 right angle turns in it! No fancy retail outlets where one could gather electronics. And certainly no Customs Office!
Then we move to Vegas, where the heroes arrive by road just a few minutes after the bad guys flew in. It's 200 miles, folks!
I like adventure stories that jump around the world. But you have to make sure your locales are realistic.
Perhaps the author is churning these out too fast to check out his locations.
I could not put this book down. And the "route" to the treasure was a great trip. I felt like I was on the journey.
The treasure hunters are backed up by archaeologists, museums, etc., so this is not a "looting" expedition, it is an expedition to retrieve treasure for everyone, not to be melted down and turned into money. Alicia has developed into a three dimensional character and I am really liking the people she has "partnered" with.
Leadbeater's writing is crisp, clear and illustrative. I am there, I see it, I hear it and I can't wait to get back to it.
Point about Alicia - well written except she seems to tries to "out-male" the males in the story. I like women action heroes. They are fun to read about and watch. They are be as weapons proficient, combat proficient, and intelligent as any male, if not more. However: Alicia seems to make it a point to denigrate any male she comes in contact with. With her attitude, I'm surprised she doesn't have to fight every male she get introduced to.
