Why is Cornell archaeology professor Robert Johnson, a pre-Columbian scholar, selected to head up a multimillion-dollar project in Mongolia? Why is this so important to high-tech billionaire Walter Falone? Why is he using consultants from Israel Aerospace Industries for his government contract in Mongolia?
For Johnson and his colleague, brilliant and beautiful assistant professor Abbey Summers, it becomes the adventure of a lifetime in MONGOLIA AND THE GOLDEN EAGLE, a new mystery thriller from author Bradford G. Wheler.
Cyber security threats, high-tech spying, and Chinese agents mix in this ingenious and thrilling plot of full of twists and turns. Somewhere in spectacular snowcapped Altai Mountains of western Mongolia there is a mysterious object that people are willing to kill for.
Readers will meet fascinating characters they’ll never forget: a high-tech billionaire, a quick-witted professor, his beautiful young assistant, a former sumo wrestler, a full-blooded Navajo Indian, and the people of Mongolia.
This assiduously researched, fast-paced novel brings archaeology and cyber espionage to life against the backdrop of the wild and rugged landscape of Mongolia, the land of Genghis Khan.
Along with riveting action, MONGOLIA AND THE GOLDEN EAGLE contains 27 illustrations and photos. Wheler draws on his own expertise in engineering, technology, and business to help readers feel that they are living the adventure.
Mixing the action of David Baldacci’s The Hit, the tech thrills of Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, and the dialogue of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser novels, MONGOLIA AND THE GOLDEN EAGLE is a true pleasure to read.

This is a second well-written, enjoyable, suspenseful, and entertaining novel by Bradford G. Wheler continuing the adventures told in “Inca’s Death Cave.” Readers do not have to know what happened in the prior book to enjoy this adventure; it stands alone. It is filled with drama, mystery, charismatic characters, a lot of fascinating information about various subjects, and a wealth of humor. The book shows that its author did much research about Mongolia, as he did in his prior book about Peru.
Thoroughly Enjoyable !

“Mongolia and the Golden Eagle” by Wheler begins by discussing the long history of the Monguls from the development of the Silk Road through the tribulations caused by the Black Death killing nearly 100 million. There is a huge historical background developed with skill by the author.
Fast-Paced and Engrossing

Wheler provides a fast-paced and engrossing adventure in the remote reaches of Mongolia. Main characters from Inca’s Death Cave are augmented with new and equally exciting characters for a story that is entertaining, educational and enthralling. The new characters are painted in depth, and are imaginative and unusual.
The story line itself is fictional but will leave you wondering if this could all really happen.

I truly enjoy reading about archaeology and if there is a mystery involved all the better! Now this is a novel but the “regions, cities, archaeological sites, rivers and national parks are all real. The major historical figures, and experts plus their works are real. I have tried to accurately describe the cultures and landscapes of Mongolia.” (from the Acknowledgments by the author at the end of the book.) The illustrations throughout the book are fascinating.
Wonderful exciting Mystery

What a wonderful archaeological mystery. So many Pictures are included for the fascinating adventure into Mongolia, a place so unexplored by the “outside world”. What a treat they provide, along with the leisurely pace of the unfolding plot. It gives you a feel of actually being on the journey with the Team. Using 21st Century technology really opens up possibilities of truly ancient discoveries, beyond the dreams of earlier exploring teams.
