(From the publisher):
In the first chapter of the Ancient Rising trilogy, recent widower Dan Ryan is visited by a strange being claming to be the Greek God Hermes. This eccentric character tells him that the Greek Gods of myth are real and imprisoned on Atlantis and only Dan can free them. Grief stricken and believing he has little else to live for he decides to follow the self proclaimed deity's instructions and seeks out an archaeologist who is in search of the lost continent. What follows is an adventurous journey to Greece, Egypt, Spain and eventually Atlantis itself. Along the way Dan battles with his own sanity, his relationship with God, an attraction to a young companion, sharks, pirates, murderers, an evil billionaire bent on finding Atlantis first, zombies, confusing clues, and the never-ending sarcasm of Hermes. All this and they havent even gotten to the island nation yet where awaiting them is something much, much worse.
