: : Thanking you in advance,

: I think that any of the Indy books by Rob MacGregor are great stories. The others are okay, but they aren't a thing like Indy, it's as though they each just created their own characters and called them Indiana Jones. Whatever you do, do NOT bother reading Sky Pirates. Totally unlike anything Indy. I vote Rob MacGregor!
Though I've read them all and enjoyed MOST (forget Martin Caiden's books) I have two favorite Indy novels that I would recommend to you. The first is "Philosopher's Stone", by Max McCoy. "The Dance of the Giants", by Rob MacGregor, is just as good. The best of the series are they, in my opinion. If you want to steer clear of a TOD style novel, then keep away from "The Dinosaur Eggs" by McCoy. I, personally, enjoyed it immensely, but you may not.
