The Navigator

The story looked promising, but my enjoyment was a bit ruined by some mistakes in the translation. [The book I read has been translated to Indonesian.] They are not 100% mistakes, only that the choice of words and phrases sometimes are not right. The synopsis on the back sleeve is a sort of spoiler as well, as it gives away the name of the bad guy. So from the start, I had already known who the main villain was.

This book by Clive Cussler & Paul Kemprecos is an adventure story, about the search of Queen Seba's tomb and the treasure of King Solomon. The ending is not what you think, but the searching process is a real challenge, complete with conspiracy and a dangerous hitman.
