My rating: 3 of 5 stars to Will Adams‘s The Eden Legacy, the fourth in his “Daniel Knox” series — and I think possibly the last one. I enjoyed this book, and the series, but I think this one was my least favorite.
In the last book, Daniel suffered a great tragedy and had to go in hiding. This book picks up almost two years later when he’s working on a dive rescue team looking for sunken ships near Madagascar. The bad guys from Georgia (Europe) trace him down and want revenge. He’s also in search of a woman who helped him out when he first moved to the area after the previous tragedy. He befriends the lost women’s sister and together they try to solve the puzzle of the missing Chinese ship, the sister and the Georgian hoodlums.
Very descriptive. Lots of archaeological details. Good drama. Surprise Twist.
Not cohesive. Lack of intrigue around the missing Chinese ship (but there were so many options to help it improve). Lacks any hint at the future, which the previous books included.
It’s a good book, just not as good as the rest of the series. I’d read book 1 and 2 and decide if you want to continue the series. They can be read standalone, no need to finish the series as each one is a separate story.
