Praise for The Crystal Skull

“A fantastic tale of human struggle against the forces of evil and an attempt to avert the apocalypse.”

SOUL & SPIRIT, June 2008

“Very much in the style of the epic thriller writers such as Wilbur Smith, Clive Cussler and Matthew Reilly, Scott has produced a veritable three course meal of a book in which every dish served up is superb.”

SHROPSHIRE STAR

“Original, scary, rooted in the past but as current as tomorrow's nightmare. An enthralling read.”

Lee Child
