The Venetian Pursuit: An Archaeological Thriller (The Jack Reilly Adventures Book 5)

On July 2, 1937, one of America’s greatest adventurers suddenly vanishes. The event makes global headlines, fueling decades of debate, and birthing countless conspiracy theories.

Gregory Wentz’s yacht is marooned on an uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean. The U.S. Senator’s fifteen-year-old son ventures into the tree line and finds something amazing, the scattered remains of a plane wreck with the number N16020 stamped on its wing. Wentz, a former Air Force pilot, instantly recognizes what he’s looking at. He contacts someone he knows he can trust, a man who is supposed to be dead, Solomon Raegor, Director of the Tactical Archaeological Command.

What was already a historic discovery turns into something infinitely bigger once Raegor and TAC operative Jack Reilly uncover the truth. Amelia Earhart was hijacked at gunpoint shortly before taking off on that fateful day. Her co-pilot was replaced by a desperate man with a crazy plan, and information concerning one of history’s other greatest mysteries: the location of Marco Polo’s lost fleet, and the fortune it holds.
