The Navigator

the-navigator

Years ago, an ancient Phoenician statue known as the Navigator was stolen from the Baghdad museum, and there are men who would do anything to get their hands on it. Their first victim is a crooked antiquities dealer, murdered in cold blood. Their second, very nearly, is a UN investigator who, were it not for the timely assistance of Kurt Austin and Zavala, would now be at the bottom of a watery grave. What’s so special about this statue? Austin wonders.
The search for answers will take the NUMA team on an astonishing odyssey through time and space, one that encompasses no less than the lost treasures of King Solomon, a mysterious packet of documents personally encoded by Thomas Jefferson, and a top-secret scientific project that could change the world forever. And that’s before the surprises really begin…
Kurt Austin is Head of the US National Underwater and Marine Agency’s (NUMA) Special Assignments Team – a job that ensures he is no stranger to danger above or below the waves.
Austin’s assignments take him across the globe and frequently bring him into conflict with those who seek to use any and all means to exploit the world’s resources. But as a professional man of action, Austin is determined that it will never happen on his watch.
