Why is Cornell archaeology professor Robert Johnson, a pre-Columbian scholar, selected to head up a multimillion-dollar project in Mongolia? Why is this so important to high-tech billionaire Walter Falone? Why is he using consultants from Israel Aerospace Industries for his government contract in Mongolia?
For Johnson and his colleague, brilliant and beautiful assistant professor Abbey Summers, it becomes the adventure of a lifetime in Mongolia and The Golden Eagle, a new mystery thriller from author Bradford G. Wheler. Cyber security threats, high-tech spying, and Chinese agents mix in this ingenious and thrilling plot of full of twists and turns. Somewhere in spectacular snowcapped Altai Mountains of western Mongolia there is a mysterious object that people are willing to kill for. Listeners will meet fascinating characters they’ll never forget: a high-tech billionaire, a quick-witted professor, his beautiful young assistant, a former sumo wrestler, a full-blooded Navajo Indian, and the people of Mongolia.
This assiduously researched, fast-paced novel brings archaeology and cyber espionage to life against the backdrop of the wild and rugged landscape of Mongolia, the land of Genghis Khan. Wheler draws on his own expertise in engineering, technology, and business to help listeners feel that they are living the adventure. Mixing the action of David Baldacci’s The Hit, the tech thrills of Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, and the dialogue of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser novels, mongolia and The Golden Eagle is a true pleasure to listen to.
