Really slow first half. I went back to this one after reading a later book in the series. I would not recommend starting with this one. The other comment was correct about the Chase Kolpath introduction.

If you're a fan going back through the earlier publication dates, the words "My name is Chase Kolpath" will be pretty exciting.
Takes a bit to really get going, but the last bit is a real page turner.

From page 51, 4th paragraph from bottom:
"Schleimann [sic] and Champollion were amateurs," I said growing somewhat testy. "So were Towerman and Crane...."

- Schliemann, Heinrich

German Arachaeologist
(Re-?) Discovered ancient Troy in Anatolia (Hissarlik, Turkey)

- Champollion, Jean-Francois
(1790-1832)

- "Towerman and Crane"
("Further study is required")
Probably names made up by the author.
