The Pyramid of Doom by Andy McDermott
Archaeologist Nina Wilde and her ex-SAS husband Eddie Chase are back! Depressed and unemployed Nina hardly leaves her dingy walkup in Queens, pining for the career and the adventures that have been taken from her as a result of her last outing. But things are looking up. An intern on a dig in Egypt searches Nina out and after a coffee shop meeting they are fleeing through midtown Manhattan in a “borrowed” cab and getting shot at by their pursuers. Looks like life will be getting interesting again after all.
This is a typical entry in the Wilde/Chase series. There is a lot of world hopping and break neck adventure with mythology and archaeology thrown in copious amounts. I took this book on vacation with me and it is a perfect read when you don’t want to think too much, but you want to be entertained by fun dialogue, one liners and incredible action.
