If I personally found the plot had too many kidnappings, and found it a bit disconcerting how a seemingly ordinary wife and mother ends up the head of a major electronics firm taking on contracts from the Department of Defense, I was delighted to find characters who don't possess the ability to quickly decipher the most obscure cues, even some -- like the final target, and a vital code word -- that I figured out before OSI special agent Maxine Decker and her team. Certainly, I was appreciative of how the authors kept their story-line exclusively to the U.S. and Mexico, not stretching credulity by including so many foreign locales that a reader questions the "how" behind so many people, from so many different government agencies, so easily, and so quickly, passing over international borders.
If the novel's cliff-hanging moments, and super-short chapters are legion, and they are, they're no more nor less so than in other books in the genre.
In the end, THE TOMB, did keep me consistently interested and kept me turning the pages from beginning to end. And, I suspect I would have enjoyed it even more if I hadn't recently glutted myself on the books of James Rollins.
The book follows Maxine and Kenny as they try to figure out what's going on: it turns out that the Nazi relic is tied to a very real threat in the present day, and thousands of American lives are at stake. The main story is interrupted periodically by excerpts from an old diary. A woman named Magda Scarlet provides a riveting account of a personal tragedy. Her story seems at first to be completely unrelated to the modern-day drama that's keeping Maxine busy, but of course it's not. Eventually the two storylines merge, and it's a bit of a surprise when they do. (My one complaint about the book is that Magda Scarlet's transformation is so dramatic that it perhaps strains credibility.)
The Tomb is a quick read with short chapters that keep you turning the pages. An entertaining plot, but I'm increasingly in it for the characters. I really like the relationship between Maxine and Kenny: it's a sweet romance that somehow keeps you hooked despite their history. Their happily ever after didn't take the first time, but we're hoping they'll give it a second shot.
