Gideon Crew—brilliant scientist, master thief, intrepid adventurer—is shocked when his former employer, Eli Glinn, vanishes without a trace, and Glinn’s high-tech lab Effective Engineering Solutions shuts down seemingly overnight. Fresh off a diagnosis that gives him only months to live, Crew is contacted by one of his former coworkers at EES, Manuel Garza, who has a bead on one final treasure hinted at in EES’s final case, the long-awaited translation of a centuries-old stone tablet of a previously undiscovered civilization: The Phaistos Disc. What lies at the end of the trail will either save Gideon’s life—or bring it to a sudden, shocking close. Crew once again faces incredible odds—but as Gideon has proven again and again, there’s no such thing as too great a risk when you’re living on borrowed time.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Doomed by a fatal illness, Gideon Crew embarks on one wild, series-ending adventure…The pace never slackens…This is a cleverly plotted yarn with some laugh-out-loud twists, the best ones involving Garza’s bravery and ingenuity…When the end of a book with a dying hero makes the reader laugh, that’s a neat trick. This is a great cap on the series.” Kirkus Reviews
“In the course of their quest, Gideon and Garza escape from a sinking ship on the Red Sea, join forces with an attractive British geologist named Imogen Blackburn, and discover a lost civilization in a remote valley. The authors keep the tone light and the reader guessing right up to the open ending, which leaves some major plot points unresolved. Fans of the Indiana Jones movies will find plenty to like.” Publishers Weekly
