Egyptologist Daniel Knox's lifelong fascination with Alexander the Great and his tomb, a fabled wonder of the ancient world, could be the death of him. After construction workers excavating in Alexandria expose a catacomb dating back to ancient times, Knox eagerly sneaks in to scout the cavernous and dusty site. Among the relics he finds clues that may solve one of the world's greatest mysteries: the last resting place of Alexander the Great. An unconquerable warrior king, Alexander was the single most powerful man on the planet and thought to be a god. Now, nearly 2,500 years later, the discovery of his tomb, seemingly lost forever, is within reach, triggering a deadly hunt for one of the greatest treasures of all time. Knox is not the only seeker; others are after the prize, and they would kill to win it. In the spirit of the great adventure-thrillers by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, Clive Cussler, Raymond Khoury, and Steve Berry, The Alexander Cipher is a rip-roaring ride through history, archaeology, and the great deserts of Egypt.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A resourceful and appealing hero, and…the action crackles along with betrayals, vendettas, and revelations galore.”

    Daily Mail (London)

  • A razor-edged thriller that delves deeply into crumbling tombs and ancient secrets. Explosively paced and tautly told. James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle
  • “A cracking adventure in which Alexander the Great is brought to extraordinary life; plus there’s a modern-day search for the conqueror’s tomb. Enthralling.”

    Observer (London)

  • “Daniel and his plucky Australian partner, Rick, make for an engaging pair of heroes, and the author does an excellent job of keeping the story moving at a brisk clip while giving us all the historical background we require to understand what all the fuss is about. There’s also a nice romantic subplot, and one or two smartly constructed twists. Surprisingly, considering its high quality, this is Adams’ first novel.”

    " A typical archaeological thriller, an entertaining light read. I might check out the others in this series but only if they're also free from the library. "

    " I won this book from one of the Firstreads giveaways. While not something I would typically read, this was enjoyable. The characters were well-developed, the dialogue was realistic, the plot fast-paced. There's action, suspense, history, a little romance (but not too much). Good beach read. "

    " This is an archeological thriller...a good read. I've read a number of Will Adams books and he uses the same characters. This was his first book and I would advise that you read them in the correct order. "
