For an agent, I thought the main character, Cash, was inept as a leader and I could not warm up to him at all. Two-thirds of the way into the book the twists and turns were just a bit much. They were very complicated, too confusing and difficult to follow. The flow of the plot became choppy and I found this irritating. I finished the book but was disappointed.
With the exception of Cash, the other characters were more redeeming and I still liked the overall theme.
As he tries to stop the devastation of antiquities and humankind, he must conquer the secrets of his past and save the woman who has won his heart.
From the mangrove forest in the Bahamas to underground cities in Peru to the Navajo Nation in Arizona, Ms McMahill creates for the reader the experience the assemblage of agents, an archaeologist and a scientist encounter as they search for the thirteen relics that have the power to change the world.
But Cash Luker may have met his match when someone from his past, equally knowledgeable and with a carefully collected group of assistants seems to stay one step ahead of him in the race for the thirteen.
I highly recommend this novel. Very well done Ms McMahill!
I think what impressed me most about the novel, however, was not the thrilling story, although that is certainly there. The plot takes place in the Bahamas, Arizona, Argentina, Mexico, and Peru. Each of these locations is described in rich detail, drawing the reader right into the mangroves or the Arizona desert. The story is told from multiple perspectives so the author has to be able to transport the reader easily and quickly between some very diverse locations, and overall, these jumps are handle well.
In addition, the entire plot line revolves around ancient history, particularly ancient Mayan knowledge and again Kim McMahill proves that she has done extensive research which she shares in depth with her readers so that this novel becomes much more than just another adventure story. I learned a lot as I was reading this story and I always think that is a plus in any novel.
The characters are also very engaging and well-defined. The interactions between the various agents under Cash’s command ring true. Cash’s past history has left him badly wounded emotionally, and some of that past history returns to haunt him, adding a layer of humanity and depth to his character. The same is true for the other members of his team which results in having characters the reader can really get to know and care about.
Lovers of action suspense mysteries are sure to enjoy Shrouded in Secrets. The pages seem to turn themselves.
