AN INCREDIBLE DISCOVERY.
A MERCILESS FOE.
A DEADLY RACE FOR THE TRUTH.
 
Off a remote stretch of the Indonesian coast, archaeologist Nina Wilde has made an astounding discovery: an artifact that will rewrite everything that’s known about human history. But before she can return to tell the world of her find, her ship is brutally attacked, her crew is ruthlessly murdered, and the artifact is stolen. Someone wants this secret to stay hidden—and will do anything to keep it that way.

From the depths of the ocean to the Australian outback to the halls of the United Nations, Nina and her fiancé, ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, embark on a quest to stop the all-powerful Covenant of Genesis, a clandestine group sworn to keep Nina’s discovery a secret. Nina and Eddie have faced tough adversaries before, but the relentless Covenant is always two steps ahead of them—and more than willing to kill again. Who will be the first to expose the truth—and claim the most valuable archaeological prize of all time?
 
Enter The Covenant of Genesis
And discover an action-packed thrill ride that will keep you reading long into the night!

Another typical McDermott multiple chase/rescue scenes while trying to find an historically real/fictious location/artifact book. I think his books could be about 100 pages shorter without hurting the storyline if he reduced the amount of description in the chase/rescue scenes. There was one significant difference in this book. There were quite a few gruesome descriptions of dismemberment/killings throuhout the story.more
So, round four for our intrepid heroes Eddie Chase and Nina Wilde and it's so far so formulaic. I so, so enjoyed the first two of these but I had a feeling after finishing the last one that I might be beginning to find the format somewhat repetitive and predictable. So predicatable in fact that I had this one figured out within the first 150 pages. I'm also starting to find Nina Wilde rather irritating and spent much of this book hoping Eddie would run off with his ex-wife in spite of her being a psychotic mass-murderer who tried to nuke New York! Here's to hoping McDermott can put an original spin on their next outing, otherwise I may have to retire Chase and Wilde early.more
I thought this was another great book in the series, however I found some of the story to be to contrived and other parts too easy to guess.more
Ah, another thriller involving 14 locations (including the south-west Pacific, New York, Antarctica, Western Australia, Cuba…). Nina and her fiancé Eddie are researching something or other when they get attacked by pirates… and really to disclose any more would ruin the plot. But there’s an ex-wife at Guantanamo Bay, dons at Cambridge, people digging up Western Australia and Antarctica in pursuit of something we’re not quite sure about for quite a long time…Perhaps the book is best summed up through a conversation I had with my husband:Me: What I found really implausible about that book was the ending. How can he … *omitted so as not to spoil plot*.Him: *hearty Scottish chuckle* So you had no problem with the *****, the ancient religions coming up with a *****, this crazy archaeologist surviving *****, ***** and *****, never mind the discovery of *****, the fact that the American President then *****, that they escaped from the ****** and then that ***** turns out to be ******, just the bit with the waterfall is unrealistic?Me: Hmmm. True.more
