A very interesting story again with some characters that I hope will feature in future novels.

What does the lost Romanov treasure of Russia, Sasquatch, and British Columbia have in common? They are all woven together in this audacious novel. Golemon continues his Event series with this book that delves into cryptozoology and revisionist history. After the execution in 1918 of the Russian Czar and his family a legend emerged that the czar's children, Alexei and Anastasia, survived―and came to America with the treasure of the Romanov dynasty.

A battered journal is found confirming this legend, which prompts a race to find it by both Russia and a U.S. based secret government agency (The Event Group). The group specializes in myth and aims to find out where the treasure is buried before the Russians do. But there is a problem - when humans first came to North America they were followed by another species. These predators hide the secret of the gold somewhere deep in British Columbia and those who seek it tend to disappear. Throw in some Quebec separatists, a secret US mission to take out Russian leaders during the Cold War, and you have an unlikely plot line that somehow is well woven together. Suspend your disbelief and enjoy the trip.

This book is a wild ride of a read that will keep you turning the pages. You don’t have to read the others in the series to understand what’s going on. Fans of James Rollins, Clive Cussler, and Steve Berry will like this New York Times best-selling author. Could the events in this book actually happen? Should history be re-written? Probably not…or maybe?
