Seven Ancient Wonders (Jack West Jr #1)
|Series:||Jack West Jr|
Thousands of years ago, a magnificent golden capstone sat atop the Great Pyramid of Giza. It was a source of immense power, capable of bestowing upon its holder absolute global rule for a thousand years. But then, in 323 BC, the capstone was broken into seven pieces and hidden within the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Now the time has come to rebuild the capstone. Everyone wants it. From the most powerful countries on Earth, to gangs of evil terrorists...and one daring coalition of eight small nations who think no single country should possess such an awesome power source. And so, led by the mysterious Captain Jack West Jr, this determined group enters into an adventure beyond imagining. From the pyramids of Egypt to the swamps of Sudan, to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the boulevards of Paris: the desperate race begins. The greatest prize of all: the power to end the world or rule it.
