The Tombs of Eden

The Tombs of Eden - Rick Jones Alyssa Moore is an archaeologist who is trying to complete her father's quest to find the Garden of Eden ... and a whole lot of people want to stop her.Set in the Turkish desert, "The Tombs of Eden" is both a political thriller and a look at the dark side of religion, as most of the forces trying to prevent Moore from achieving her goal are affiliated with one church or another.Of course, the tale would not be complete without some prehistoric critter roaming the archaeological dig. Think [b:Jurassic Park|7677|Jurassic Park (Jurassic Park, #1)|Michael Crichton||3376836] meets [b:The Da Vinci Code|968|The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon, #2)|Dan Brown||2982101] and you'll have a pretty clear idea of what I mean.Overall, I enjoyed the book with all of its twists and turns. Some of the villains felt a little two-dimensional to me, but that may be a matter of taste.
