Her parents were in Tibet in their quest to find Atlantis when they died.  Their deaths shook up their daughter archeologist Nina Wilde, who is in New York City when word reaches her.  She has no time to grieve as someone tries to kill her.

Former personal security expert Eddie Chase saves her life.  Eddie introduces Nina to reclusive billionaire Kristian Frost and his daughter, Kari.  Father and daughter are interested in finding the mythical city and are willing to fund the right expedition; they believe Nina is the right person to lead the quest.  Seeing this as a legacy for her late parents, she agrees and begins a globetrotting expedition following clues and dodging human perils fostered on her and her team by The Brotherhood of Selasphorus with Eddie’s help.

This globetrotting breakneck speed thriller will have readers thinking of Indiana Jones (Josephine) as the heroine races back and forth onto four continents being chased by the brotherhood every step of the way.  Filled with twists the story line is action, action, and more action as THE HUNT FOR ATLANTIS contains a somewhat limited plot, but fans will enjoy trekking the world faster than the speed of light (or at least the bad guys) with Nina.
