There is not much to recommend about Indiana Jones and the Genesis Deluge. Jones did not feel at all like the film character; he had a whip and a fedora, and spouted archeological facts, but other than that he was fairly generic. Supporting characters were similarly one-dimensional. One character has his family murdered while he watched and one page later there was no noticeable effect on his behavior, he went on as if nothing had happened and was thinking about chasing a girl. The action was so-so, the settings quite drab, and the ending anticlimactic.

So after an enjoyable first two books by Rob MacGregor, the next two (this one and the Seven Veils) were very disappointing. Their saving grace, if you want to consider it such, is that they are really quick reads. I finished the Genesis Deluge even though it was not good because it was only an extra couple of hours of reading to do so. ( )

A Wash in Evil

London, 1927. Since losing his beloved in the Amazon a year ago, Indiana Jones has settled down with his Ph.D. and taught Celtic archaeology, thinking he has left adventure behind. Yet Indy is rather tempted when a wild-eyed Russian doctor, Vladimir Zobolotsky, tries to recruit him for an expedition to search for Noah’s Ark . . . and he finally takes up the dangerous quest after meeting Vladimir’s alluring daughter, Katrina.

They have set out for Istanbul and then Mount Ararat, the fabled location of Noah’s Ark, when trouble erupts. Kremlin agents, Sicilian “enforcers,” and Turkish bandits all attempt to bar Vladimir, Katrina, and Indiana Jones from the archaeological find of the century . . . and from a certain 950-year-old boatbuilder.
