When the reclusive mathematician Jeremy Grady is murdered, it's up to his estranged brother Jack to find out why. Jack's search leads him on a far-flung journey--from Brazil, India, Peru, and beyond--as he unravels the mystery that links the Seven Wonders of the World, and discovers that Jeremy may have hit upon something that's been concealed for centuries. With the help of scientist Sloane Costa, they discover a conspiracy to hide a roadmap to the Garden of Eden--and the truth behind a mythological ancient culture.

With a heart-pounding pace and panoramic backdrops, Seven Wonders is an electrifying read, and will be the first in a trilogy.

A bestselling author of nonfiction (Bringing Down the House; The Accidental Billionaires), Mezrich ventures into thriller territory with enjoyable results. The murder of anthropologist Jack Grady’s 28-year-old twin brother, Jeremy, brings Jack to MIT, where he recovers a hidden thumb-drive, which proves that Jeremy, a mathematical savant, discovered a seemingly impossible link between the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the new Seven Wonders of the World. The sole anomaly is Brazil’s immense statue of Christ the Redeemer, and it is there Jack heads for clues. A series of finds leads Jack and his companion, botanist Sloane Costa, to other wondrous sites, where they are shadowed by operatives of billionaire Jendari Saphra. Like Indiana Jones, Jack must overcome a number of obstacles, including spiders, snakes, and booby traps, en route to uncovering an ancient secret. Mezrich has written a rollicking adventure with a fantastic behind-the-scenes tour of some of the world’s most intriguing spots. Agent: Eric Simonoff, WME. (Sept.)
