BEYOND THE NARROWS by M.R. Durbin —#bookreview #amreading #books

BEYOND THE NARROWS by M. R. Durbin. I had very mixed feelings on this book. The premise was fascinating, and I loved the wealth of knowledge that was given in this story. The humor was a perfect off set to all the information given. The tension was great when it was there, and the characters were easy to grow fond of. I had a very difficult time following the point of view throughout a lot of the book though. I found myself going back to see who was speaking and who's head we were in. At times it felt like we were supposed to be in an omnisciente point of view, but it wasn't pulled off cleanly. Other times it was very clear who's point of view we were in. This is a wonderful adventure with a ton of what I would consider little known bits of knowledge that does leave the story open to a companion novel. Anyone who loves a great adventure will enjoy this book.

After being the subject of an explosive assassination attempt, O'Reilly (Obie) Begay, a retired Navajo archaeologist, finds himself in the middle of the hunt for an ancient record the personal journal of a Spanish Templar leading to a legendary treasure.
When Obie tracks down the journal, he enlists fellow retirees Peter, Bill, and Jack to assist him in following its clues. Facing gunfights and car chases, the treasure hunters locate a 500-year-old Mayan codex, the next clue on their adventure. Peter's grandson, Charley, and Obie's granddaughter, Mac, come along for the quest, but they may find themselves drawn to a different kind of treasure.
Constantly one tiny step ahead of their enemies as they scour the caves, cliffs, and canyons of Southern Utah, Obie's team will have to rely on each other if they want to reach the treasure before their pursuers. But what will they do if not all in their numbers can be trusted?
