City of Gold
by Carolyn Arnold
What you get is a near-perfect mix…heart-pounding escapades and near-misses, balanced by moments of – if not levity, at least a temporary release of the pressure cooker.
It’s fast paced, at times even edge of your seat and held my attention through out the entire story.
~Tea and A Book
Ms. Arnold does a great job with the prologue; a discovered treasure, a chase through the forest, a waterfall jump and more than plenty of lively commentary between the three “treasure hunters” to keep a reader turning the page.
~Queen of All She Reads
This was a quick, entertaining read – I devoured it in one sitting!
~The Book’s the Thing
The story was reminiscent of the Indiana Jones movies. If you like those, you will enjoy this book.
This is definitely akin to an Indian Jones story set in modern times. There is very fast paced action and danger in one scenario with some good investigative twists at the home front.
~Reviews by Martha’s Bookshelf
I am new to this author, but won’t be a stranger for long, this is easily one of the best books I will read all year… There wasn’t a dull moment in this book. I highly recommend this high octane thriller.
~I Read What You Write!
It’s a worthwhile read, and ideal for holidays and long train journeys, where some exciting escapism coupled with some good detective work is just the ticket.
~Jemima Pett, Author
The book has many twists and turns and I think this could be an interesting series with Matthew, Robyn and Cal searching for lost treasures.
City of Gold
(Matthew Connor Adventure Series Book 1)
Hardcover: 314 pages
Publisher: Hibbert & Stiles Publishing Inc (November 27, 2015)
Action-adventure books for the mystery lover. In this series, modern-day archaeologist and adventurer Matthew Connor travels the globe with his two closest friends to unearth treasure and discover legends the world has all but forgotten. Indiana Jones meets the twenty-first century.
Finding the Inca’s lost City of Gold would be the discovery of a lifetime. But failing could mean her death…
Archaeologist Matthew Connor and his friends Cal and Robyn are finally home after a dangerous retrieval expedition in India. While they succeeded in obtaining the priceless Pandu artifact they sought, it almost cost them their lives. Still, Matthew is ready for the next adventure. Yet when new intel surfaces indicating the possible location of the legendary City of Gold, Matthew is hesitant to embark on the quest.
Not only is the evidence questionable but it means looking for the lost city of Paititi far away from where other explorers have concentrated their efforts. As appealing as making the discovery would be, it’s just too risky. But when Cal’s girlfriend, Sophie, is abducted by Matthew’s old nemesis who is dead-set on acquiring the Pandu statue, Matthew may be forced into action. Saving Sophie’s life means either breaking into the Royal Ontario Museum to steal the relic or offering up something no one in his or her right mind can refuse–the City of Gold.
Now Matthew and his two closest friends have to find a city and a treasure that have been lost for centuries. And they only have seven days to do it. As they race against the clock, they quickly discover that the streets they seek aren’t actually paved with gold, but with blood.
