Author: Sean Ellis
Nick Kismet will go anywhere, do anything, to protect the treasures of the ancient world. But to stop an ancient symbol of power from becoming a weapon of unimaginable terror, he’ll have to go further than he’s ever gone before…. When an old college flame tries to entice him into smuggling a precious relic into the United States, Nick Kismet knows there’s something more going on. But before he can get at the truth, a former rival appears out of nowhere, inviting Kismet to join him on a search for the mythical Golden Fleece. Although Kismet dismisses the possibility that the Fleece is real, he soon realizes that the search may bring him one step closer to unmasking the mysterious Prometheus group and solving the puzzle of his own origins. Accompanied by the beautiful daughter of a kidnapped Russian exile, Kismet follows in the footsteps of the legendary Argonauts, and sets out for the Republic of Georgia, the site of the ancient kingdom of Colchis. There he will discover that the Fleece is no mere story, but is instead the key to a devastating new weapon. Kismet’s quest will take him from the deserts of North Africa to the urban jungles of Manhattan to the snow covered mountains of Georgia…but to keep the Golden Fleece from falling into the hands of his greatest enemy, Kismet will have to go... ...Into the Black.
"INTO THE BLACK is a rollicking adventure that races through your hands like a hydrofoil flying across the sea. Filled with masterful action scenes and a great new hero in Nick Kismet -- a lucky soul who knows only one way to live: full speed ahead -- Sean Ellis has mixed a perfect cocktail of adventure and intrigue and this one is definitely shaken and not stirred."-- Graham Brown, author of the thrillers BLACK RAIN and BLACK SUN.
