Curse Of The Ancients by Hawk Mackinney I Read Tour-Review/Giveaway


About the book 
As Craige Ingram climbed the stairs of the derelict building, that peculiar stench of a dead body hit him. It was the same smell no matter where—SpecOps SEAL encounter gone sour, or in a vacant, roach-infested apartment. Inside, his SEAL buddy-turned head of Buckingham Parish Homicide’s Investigative Support Division, Grayson MacGerald, was huddled with the coroner next to a swollen decaying corpse that was days old and hardly more than oozing dead meat.
The PI inside Craige had a gut feeling that there was more to this than a dead body, and Craige’s Grannie always told him, “Trust your feelin’s.” But that was before Mihály Keaulescu set down two of his Black Falcon choppers on Craige’s Moccasin Hollow private airstrip in an uninvited stopover. It got worse. From his airstrip to Israel, to Turkey and a nightmare-dream of one-of-a-kind ancient artifacts that not only threatened the serene life Craige knew and loved at Moccasin Hollow, it would destroy the world.
And I thought
Does the cover 'getcha' and make you wonder what is up?  
Curse Of The Ancients draws  you in from page and does not let you go.  
This is book three in the series and for me was a little different than book 2 ( I have not read book 1)  Better? Maybe?  Not sure but either way each one was great and I look forward to the next one. 
This one was different in we got more backstory and Craiges 
Seal Team activities.  We met more of his team members. 
Each book is written as a stand alone so if you missed the first one don't worry you'll be drawn in anyway. 
It's kind of a guys book/story written by a guy but mine wouldn't be too into it. 
It is a good well written story with some great characters that you just want to hang on for the ride all the way to the end.  
I kind of like Craige  I keep trying to picture him but can't seem to get it right.  He's a little James Bondish, maybe a Sean Connery character he collect stamps keeps his own jet in a barn on his property!   He's good, strong, trustworthy and dependable and gets the job done. 

I enjoyed this installment and look forward to the next one. 

If you like fast paced mystery and a bunch of fast past thrilling adventure you'll enjoy this series. 

The rating is R because some of the scenes are graphic in nature.

I received a complimentary copy.
This review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
