The Search for the Fountain of Youth is a work of action, thriller and suspense fiction penned by author Caleb Wygal. Forming the fourth novel in the Lucas Caine thriller series, this newest adventure continues the journey of Lucas as he sets out with a new deep-sea salvage initiative that he is trying to launch. But, as ever, life doesn’t run smoothly for our Lucas, and he soon makes an underwater discovery that lands him in the middle of a secret government operation, in the crosshairs yet again. With Darwin on hand to help and his salvage team ready to dive, Lucas follows the clues towards a treasure that could cost them their very lives.

Exciting, intriguing, and filled with clever twists and turns in the story, author Caleb Wygal has created a really exciting action thriller that keeps readers guessing from page to page. I particularly liked the narrative style, which is very action-focused and produces a kind of cinematic quality to readers’ imaginations as they read, following dynamic body motions as we see the characters come to life. The inclusion of history and long-debated mysteries is very well done, engaging in historical atmospheres that add flavor and relevance to the modern-day plot. Fans of Dan Brown are certain to enjoy the tale for this reason, and the character development in Lucas Caine himself is easily as strong as any leading man investigator out there in popular fiction now. Overall, The Search for the Fountain of Youth is an excellent read for fans seeking mystery and suspense.
