Publisher's Summary

Eve Duncan attempts to unearth one of history’s most intriguing lost secrets in this adventure ripped from the pages of Greek mythology, by number one New York Times best-selling author Iris Johansen.

Archaeologist Riley Smith has been obsessed with Helen of Troy since she was a small girl, trailing her professor father all over the world in search of the tomb of the world’s most beautiful woman. Professor Smith put his life on the line to prove that, instead of a myth, Helen had been a living, breathing queen.

Riley seeks the help of forensic sculptor Eve Duncan, who has the unusual skills necessary to recreate the face that launched a thousand ships—revealing Helen’s true appearance for the first time in history. But convincing Eve to take on the challenge will be difficult because her efforts could come at great personal risk to her and her family....

Tomb raiders have murdered Riley’s father, and now she is more determined than ever to reach the burial site first, avenge his death, and enlist Eve’s aid. Also on hand to help is dashing fixer and treasure hunter Michael Cade, but could he have his own secret agenda when it comes to finding Helen?

Now both Riley and Eve are in danger and in a race across one of the most remote parts of the world. All they have is their trust in each other and their belief in a dream as they hunt for Helen.

I hated this book

I tried to return it a few chapters in. Audible didn’t want it back. I don’t blame them. I found it to be incredibly poorly written. The plot was dull, ridiculous, and poorly laid out. The narrator was equally as dull. I can’t believe I wasted my time listening to this.

Loved The Book!

I so enjoy all of these books. This one was similar to a few others but that didn’t matter to me. Eve and Joe are always fun to adventure with and I really enjoyed Riley and Cade’s relationship and the fact that neither one made the other suffer with an agonized need for independence at the expense of a wonderful connection.

Purely hypothetical

This book did not disappoint. The subject was a little far fetched in that most of Eve’s other work were real people in the here and now. A little mystery a little romance and friendship which seems a usual part of these books. Enjoyed it!

audio quality is poor

The narration volume constantly rises and falls making it very difficult to follow the authors story. This is shame, is looked like such a good story.
