SHE'D DO ANYTHING TO SAVE HER SISTER'S LIFE. . . . Rachel Kirby is a computer genius whose personal life is falling apart. Even as she stands on the brink of a stunning technological breakthrough, her beloved younger sister is plagued by a rare chronic illness that will eventually kill her, leaving Rachel all alone. SAVING HER SISTER’S LIFE HAS PUT HER OWN IN GRAVE DANGER. . . . But thousands of miles away archaeologist/adventurer John Tavak has made a priceless discovery in an Egyptian tomb. A discovery, Rachel realizes, that humankind has been seeking throughout history – a secret that may save her sister’s life and many thousands more. But a powerful organization is also in white-hot pursuit, led by a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. IF SHE COULD JUST GET HER HANDS ON THE CURE . . . Against all odds, Rachel joins forces with the brilliant, enigmatic Tavak in an adventure that will take them across three continents, and it will take all of their wits, instincts, and cutting-edge technology to bring to light an ancient civilization’s most amazing legacy. And together they must race to unravel the explosive 4,500-year-old secret before it is lost to the ages.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna L. | 2/20/2014

    " This read was o.k., some interesting things about computers, but the main character annoyed me too much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Murray | 2/20/2014

    " more on science end- focus on woman cuaght in intrigue as she attempts to cure neurological disease "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Synona Culbertson | 2/18/2014

    " Read this for book club. This was an action/adventure type book that I normally wouldn't pick up, so maybe I'm a little biased in that regard. I thought the dialog was very middle-school level. I don't think it was written well at all. Most of our group didn't like it but thought it would probably make a great action movie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda | 2/10/2014

    " This was an okay book. It was pretty predictable. It didn't hold my attention the way a good action packed thriller should be. It was too easy for my mind to wander to the point where I would have to go back and reread the last page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 2/5/2014

    " Pretty good yarn- stepping away from paranormal and into technology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kayeb | 2/4/2014

    " It was ok....more the Egyptian tid bits than the story itself.... I did finish, mildly enjoyable....... but not a top choice. would I look for these authors again? probably not go out of my way, but if they show up on the library book shelf would likely read another.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sabrina | 2/3/2014

    " This book made me stop to think what the world is like for those people that are geniuses and off the charts. It would be very difficult, I think. The challenges they face are vastly different and yet in some ways the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Hammock | 1/26/2014

    " The story line was good. However, some of the characters names were similar; so had to stop and think who they were. All in all a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monika | 1/18/2014

    " Your average mystery/action book, written by a mother-son team. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stoli | 1/18/2014

    " These books are all pretty good...this one along the lines of Indiana Jones; possibly the weakest of the 3 in terms of main character likability, but still a fun, fast-paced read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/15/2014

    " Typical Iris Johansen... If you like her plot structure and types of characters, she doesn't deviate from that at all in this book. Overall, an enjoyable read but nothing new in this one (save the plot specifics). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Starket | 12/25/2013

    " This was a much more fun read for me. I usually am always satisfied with an Iris Johansen book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 12/10/2013

    " Ok,lots of technology. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Reese Druckenmiller | 11/24/2013

    " Plot line totally improbable, and not in a cool sci-fi way. Predictable, and some what lame... I'd give it about a C- "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Smithmott | 11/24/2013

    " I still don't know what the title means. There was nothing about storms or any kind of cyclical event. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 9/17/2013

    " Fast paced and enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iris | 7/29/2013

    " Little boring at the start and a tad unbelievable. Not the best book I have read for sure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 6/23/2013

    " this is a modern day Indiana Jones! Great story , my husband even enjoyed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madiha | 3/6/2013

    " I thought it was fast-paced book & kept my interest going. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna Mcnab | 2/28/2013

    " This book was written by Iris Johansen and her son, Roy Johansen, and maybe wasn't quite as "far out" as most Iris Johansen's books. It was a page turner and fun to read. I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 2/10/2013

    " Really enjoyed the book very much, I didn't want to put the book down especially once all the action started. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nina | 11/19/2012

    " I enjoyed this thriller. Good story with archaeology and interesting characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Belinda Kostelec | 11/17/2012

    " Pretty good mystery about using idle computer processing cycles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leeann | 4/26/2012

    " A good fast paced techno suspence. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 3/19/2012

    " Dreadful. Flabby writing. Unlikeable characters. Couldn't force myself to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonya | 2/15/2012

    " This book was just ok. I love Iris Johansen, her Eve Duncan series is one of my favorites, however this book just didn't have anything in it that really grabbed me and made me want to reading. I think the story line has a lot of potential but it needs some work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin Lundgren | 12/10/2011

    " A fu, fast-paced due from the mother-son team. This one involves a computer genius, a rare disease, and a 4500 yr old tomb in Egypt, plus assorted baddies, etc They do these well, with just the right amount of action, not too gratuitous, add some romance, and a dash of science and history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 8/29/2011

    " Good read but there are other Iris Johansen books I prefer. "

    " This book was written by Iris Johansen and her son, Roy Johansen, and maybe wasn't quite as "far out" as most Iris Johansen's books. It was a page turner and fun to read. I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 4/27/2011

    " Interesting and distributed computing angle was a twist, but somewhat unlikely with today's networks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 3/28/2011

    " Pretty good yarn- stepping away from paranormal and into technology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivian | 12/1/2010

    " A nice well-written mystery with well-developed characters. Interesting historical tidbits are thrown in to add some spice to the mix. All-in-all a pretty good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 11/5/2010

    " Interesting mix of ancient Egyptian happenings, computers and rare disease. The characters are interesting and fairly well developed. Rachel Kirby - computer genius a super computer named Jonesy. Tavak - errant genius taps into Jonesy's power to solve an Egyptian riddle. Mayhem insues. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/20/2010

    " boooooring!! What killed it was the letter written to the main character by the guy who is supposed to be super smart, but it sounds like it was written by a teenager. The writing was awful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 10/13/2010

    " Really enjoyed the book very much, I didn't want to put the book down especially once all the action started. "
