"Who will find the remains of the Peking Man first?"

Fresh Fiction Review

The Bone Hunters

Thriller | Thriller Arcane

In 1941, the remains of the Peking Man went missing. Now, the governments of the United States and China are racing against one another to locate and recover those remains as a new religious sect worshipping the Peking Man is growing in China. Archaeologist Lexy Vaughan and retired Air Force officer, Steve Macaulay, have been asked to once again assist after the US government approaches their friend, Dr. Barnaby Finchem. Which group will find the Peking Man remains first?

THE BONE HUNTERS is the second book in the Lexy Vaughan & Steve Macaulay series but the adventures in each book stand on their own merits. I loved Lexy and Macaulay in the first book so I was thrilled to see them back together in THE BONE HUNTERS. We get some of the same likable characters from VALHALLA while meeting a few new ones as well.

THE BONE HUNTERS kicks off at a fast pace that never stops as action and intrigue are at the heart of the story. Lexy, Macauley, and Barnaby have to unravel the historical clues to determine what might have happened to Peking Man. Robert J. Mrazek does a marvelous job at making a historical mystery seem not only timely and relevant, but absolutely fascinating as well. In fact, seeing June Corcoran and Lieutenant Colonel Tommy Somervell navigate the maze of historical documents, both classified and unclassified, is almost as intriguing as the constant action and threats faced by Lexy, Macaulay, and Barnaby.

THE BONE HUNTERS is chock full of action as Robert J. Mrazek keeps the tension level high. THE BONE HUNTERS isn't the sort of book you start reading at bedtime as you're liable to end up all night after promising you'll stop after just one more page. I hope there are future thrillers in store for us in the Lexy Vaughan & Steve Macaulay series!

The award-winning author of Valhalla brings back archaeologist Lexy Vaughan and retired Air Force officer Steve Macaulay, as they race to save a priceless discovery from disappearing forever.…

One of the greatest archaeological finds of all time, Peking Man, the 780,000-year-old remains of our earliest known human ancestor, disappeared during World War II from a cargo ship bound for America.

Now the Chinese government is fighting to keep a new religion from taking hold—a faith based on the belief that Peking Man is God. And they dispatch ruthless operatives to find and destroy the world’s most priceless fossil.

But the U.S. government has its own team on the hunt. From the mountains of Bavaria to the jungles of Central America and across the vast Pacific, Professor Barnaby Finchem, his brilliant protégé, Lexy Vaughan, and pilot Steve Macaulay will brave the wrath of nature and of man to win a race against unbridled tyranny.
