The Forgotten Fortune: An Archaeological Thriller (The Jack Reilly Adventures Book 1)

(2 customer reviews)


Unverified reports tell of a hidden treasure trove deep beneath the Owl Mountains in Poland. Many have tried, but all have failed to locate the legendary Nazi gold train.

Jack Reilly mourns the loss of his grandmother, a Holocaust survivor, and an esteemed historian. In memory of her, the retired Delta operator tours the place of her imprisonment, the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, site of the infamous Nazi concentration camp.

Suddenly, the crowded complex is taken over by a well-armed force. They’re led by a woman on a personal quest. The mercenary commander yearns to uncover the lucrative haul with the help of a journal that once belonged to Heinrich Himmler, leader of Adolf Hitler’s ruthless paramilitary organization, the Schutzstaffel. She shanghaies Jack into service after she learns of his past.

With innocent lives on the line, Jack agrees to help. If he fails, people die. But if he succeeds, and he unwillingly helps resurrect the Nazi party, even more people will die. Never in his life has Jack been stuck between a bigger rock and a harder place.

The Forgotten Fortune is the first book in international best-selling author Matt James’ action-packed archaeological thriller series The Jack Reilly Adventures.

    Jack takes on modern-day Nazis in this action-packed 5-hour adventure. The bad guys have the advantage and hostages, and the depths below the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum have buried secrets and devastating hazards. Jack takes them on and suffers for it, but will he prevail? Let’s just say I’m looking forward to Book 2. Thanks to Audiobooks Unleashed for the listen!

    strength and courage

    I really enjoyed listening to Matthew Crow. He made the characters and plot come together and life.

    A roller coaster. Nazi treasure under a place full of pain and horror.
    You have also the Knights of the Templar, under ground caves.

    A ex Delta Force soldier, whose family history, is intertwined with the history of the place of horrible pain.

    In between all the action, is a sence of humour. I found myself really liking Jack Reilly our hero. I loved the fact he talked to himself.

    I hope we have more from Jack Reilly.
