WW28 book offering : Seven Ancient Wonders by Matthew Reilly

Page 28, 1st Sentence:

"No pressure, Jack," he said to himself.

By that line one can already surmise that this book, in fact this entire trilogy, is fast-paced.

About Seven Ancient Wonders:
Caption At The Sleeve:
It will become the biggest treasure hunt in history, as rival nations engage in a desperate race to locate the legendary Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

THE CAPSTONE
4,500 years ago a magnificent golden capstone sat atop the Great Pyramid of Giza. Glorious and beautiful, it was a source of immense power for those fortunate enough to possess it.

But then, in 323 BC, the Capstone was separated into seven pieces and distributed to the furthest corners of the known world, and carefully concealed within the greatest structures of that time - known as the Seven Ancient Wonders.

Now, with the imminent arrival of a rare solar event, the time has come to locate those same pieces and bring them back together to rebuild the Capstone...

AN EPIC QUEST
Contestants for this prize include the mightiest nations on earth as well as ruthless gangs of international terrorists... but also one daring consortium of eight minor countries, who realize that no single nation should possess such an awesome source of power.

And so, led by the mysterious Captain Jack West, this small but determined team enters the fray: a global battlefield filled with viciously booby-trapped mines, gigantic evil forces and an adventure beyond imagining.

From the Colossus of Rhodes to the hanging gardens of Babylon, from the lighthouse at Alexandria to the Great Pyramid itself, fasten your seatbelts and hang on for dear life!

Why is "no pressure" always surrounded and prefaced with pressure? ;) Great teaser!

Here is my super late teaser :)
