Go down a river of no return, toward a fateful meeting with an animal that predates mankind's existence by ninety million years---after a treasure that has captured man's desires for centuries. This is what Legends are made of. The year 1533: Sent by Francisco Pizarro, Captain Hernando Padilla and his small Spanish expedition found the legend that men had only dared to whisper. In a lost valley deep in Brazil, he discovered what had driven men of greatness into sheer madness: El Dorado, the largest gold deposit in the world, hidden away from the march of time, preserved as the pristine Eden of wondrous sights and forgotten people. But what he found wasn't just gold. Instead, Padilla and his crew awakened a devil hidden in the lost valley, a beast of the Amazon who rises from the mother of all waters to viciously kill any who threaten the secret of the long-vanished Incas. But one soldier survives the bloody savagery and, before dying, shares his story with a lone priest in Peru. A secret the Vatican quickly buried away. The Present: Professor Helen Zachary is searching for a hidden legend, buried deep within the Amazon Basin---a great beast who has survived there since the dawn of time, a being ready to plunge modern science into a world of darkness. And into this darkness, Professor Zachary and her team vanish. Now a letter from a colleague of Zachary's sends the Event Group, led by Major Jack Collins, chasing down the professor's lost expedition and into the legendary darkness of the Amazon. Dedicated to discovering the truth behind the myths and legends propagated throughout world history, the Event Group---an agency within the U.S. government that officially doesn't exist---ensures that mistakes from the past are never repeated. They are a dedicated collection of the nation's most brilliant men and women of science, philosophy and the military. Using cutting-edge technology exclusively designed for the Event Group by the U.S. military, they travel from Brazil to the Little Bighorn, from Columbia to the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery. As they do, the Event Group faces mounting opposition from several different adversaries bent on either discovering the whereabouts of El Dorado . . . or trying to bury the legend forever.

Golemon takes the Event Group---the nation's most secret agency---to the brink in a heart-stopping race against time. Rumors of the seemingly magical victory that allowed the Exodus of Israelites from Egypt have resonated through the archaeological world for decades. Now evidence has been discovered that points to a new explanation of how the ancient Hebrews destroyed the unstoppable army of Pharaoh with a tribe of warriors who disappeared a generation later, after the destruction of the City of Jericho, taking with them the most valued treasures of a people without a homeland. Today a treasure of a different kind is unearthed at the lost ruins of Jericho, one that will change the history of God's Chosen People for all time—the petrified remains of an animal that could not exist. Enter the Event Group. Led by Col. Jack Collins, the Group's brilliant men and women gather to discover the truth behind not only the Exodus, but also the magnificent animals that led the defeat of Pharaoh's army. On a whirlwind race to save the most valuable treasure and artifacts in the history of the world from those who would destroy them, the Event Group will come face-to-face with every myth, legend, and historical truth that has ever unfolded in the mythic and larger-than-life Carpathians---or as the area was once known, Transylvania, the land of Vlad the Impaler. The newest pulse-pounding installment in the New York Times bestselling Event Group Series, Carpathian pushes the limits of suspense, where every chapter contains new twists and revelations in this exciting, page-turning read.

Es ist der Aufmacher jeder Nachrichtensendung. Im Garten des hochangesehenen Schriftstellers Harry Quebert wurde eine Leiche entdeckt. Und in einer Ledertasche direkt daneben: das Originalmanuskript des Romans, mit dem er berühmt wurde. Als sich herausstellt, dass es sich bei der Leiche um die sterblichen Überreste der vor 33 Jahren verschollenen Nola handelt und Quebert auch noch zugibt, ein Verhältnis mit ihr gehabt zu haben, ist der Skandal perfekt. Quebert wird verhaftet und des Mordes angeklagt. Der einzige, der noch zu ihm hält, ist sein ehemaliger Schüler und Freund Marcus Goldman, inzwischen selbst ein erfolgreicher Schriftsteller. Überzeugt von der Unschuld seines Mentors - und auf der Suche nach einer Inspiration für seinen nächsten Roman - fährt Goldman nach Aurora und beginnt auf eigene Faust im Fall Nola zu ermitteln ...
