(Dane Maddock Origins #6)
by David Wood (2014)

In 1937 Amelia Earhart vanishes somewhere over the Pacific Ocean, giving rise to one of history’s most confounding puzzles.

Navy SEALs Dane Maddock and Bones Bonebrake are sent on a covert mission to locate Earhart’s crashed Electra aircraft and recover its contents.

This is much better. Instead of trying to crowbar lots of ancient history into a plot, this is simpler. Out two heroes must recover valuable relics from the aircraft.

In their way is the usual cadre of villains, mercenaries and opportunists. It’s action and adventure all the way and without multiple plot lines all the better for it.
