To add to his mounting worries, his partner Gaille Bonnard is kidnapped while showing a television crew around the ruins of Amarna. She manages to smuggle out a message, pleading with Knox to rescue her, but he's locked in a police cell on suspicion of murder hundreds of miles away.

Quotes & Awards

  • The suspenseful action allows Colacci to demonstrate his facility with accents and well-cadenced pacing…. Listeners will feel like they're following Knox's investigation as it happens. AudioFile
  • The Alexander Cipher is a razor-edged thriller that delves deeply into crumbling tombs and ancient secrets. Explosively paced and tautly told, the book demands to be read in one sitting.”

    James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle, praise for the Alexander Cipher

  • “David Colacci ’s empathetic and fluid narration style reflects the story’s emotional highs and lows as Knox learns that he’s on the hook for a friend’s murder, his partner s been kidnapped, and someone is trying to kill him. The suspenseful action allows Colacci to demonstrate his facility with accents and well-cadenced pacing. His reading brings out the best in a crackling adventure tale involving Nefertiti, Moses, and a hoax that may have some basis in truth.”

  • “Adams clearly demonstrates the imagination and the storytelling prowess necessary to compete with the established veterans. Fans of thrillers that take readers deep into the past should be enthusiastically urged to read this novel.”

Listener Opinions

    " I was excited to read this book after it being described as Indiana Jones/Dan Brown inspired but I really struggled reading it. It was interesting enough for me to complete it but it wasn't gripping. I usually end up finishing the last page, closing the book, and spend five minutes daydreaming about the end, saying goodbye to the story and characters, but with this book, there was none of that - no character attachement, no wondering what happened afterwards. I liked the historical and cultural aspect of the book but I must admit I got quite lost with the reasonings. I would still be interested in reading his other book so it hasn't put me off Will Adams but this one just wasn't my thing! "

    " slammed my religion a little too much "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donald | 2/14/2014

    " This was an okay historical-archaeological thriller. It centers around the "heretic" pharaoh Akhenaten and a hypothesis that he was the historical Moses and that the Jews who fled Egypt were, in fact, these heretic Egyptians who believed in one god. But, then there are other things going on and it's mostly rather vague as to what the big deal is until near the end, and then it's rather a disappointment. Lots of characters to keep track of, which made it a bit harder to know what was going on and who was helping/resisting who. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 2/8/2014

    " A bit heavy on the technical/historical stuff which means less action until towards the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lydia Williams | 1/25/2014

    " The historical jargon made it hard to follow at times. Was a bit similar to Dan Brown but not as gripping. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cooper Renner | 1/23/2014

    " When the book cover says, "Digging up danger, unearthing truth," you know you're not in for a highbrow ride! But it's a thriller about ancient Egyptian archaeology--pharaoh Akhenaten--the ancient Essenes: how could I resist? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/16/2014

    " Very fast paced quite entertaining although I'm not sure how much of it really made sense. I have never read any book with so many last moment escapes from terrible fates. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eve Woods | 1/11/2014

    " Much better read than The Alexander Quest. Flowed much better. As someone else said however the characters could have been more developed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 12/15/2013

    " Probably the weakest of Will Adam's 4 books but you need to read this so that the others make sense. Again if you like Dan Brown you will like this. Another story about some lost artifacts that unfolds a story some people don't want to get out. This one has some serious religious fanatics in it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 11/5/2013

    " This is my 1st read from Will Adams. Excellent, really good written. Looking forward to reading more from this Author. I very highly recommend you add this Book to your must read list. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben Pashkoff | 10/5/2013

    " As one of these go, it was an OK yarn. Characters a bit shallow, and not quite real enough, but enough history, action, and plausability to make me ready to read the previous book (Alexander Cipher). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 H. Holder-bobo | 10/1/2013

    " Really good, might be offensive to Christians. But Adams is amazing at suspense and bringing you into the book. "

    " A good archaeological thriller! "

    " Overall a good read. Slow in some parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 9/22/2012

    " It's been a couple of years since I read it. Not as good as Steve Berry/James Rollins but an enjoyable romp. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Kubiak | 3/18/2012

    " If you like the first Daniel Knox story you'll love this one. Similar twists and chases but a nice story line, good recurrence of characters from the fist book and an interesting mix of less than Wholesome Christian Motives in an Islamic world "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maged | 1/12/2012

    " DO NOT READ. Hideous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/11/2012

    " I couldn't decide between 3 or 4 stars. So more like 3.5 stars? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Hanscom | 12/21/2011

    " exciting but insubstantial "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette Gisby | 8/3/2011

    " Great religious thriller, if you like things like the Da Vinci code, you'll like this. I actually preferre this book to Will Adams' first one, The Alexander Cipher, but both are pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita | 5/3/2011

    " An action adventure. Like Indiana Jones this is about archeology & history with car chases and fights! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marilyn | 4/4/2011

    " The book was disjointed as the story was told by at least four different people. The premise of "Cave of Treasures" was interesting, it made me want to research the Amarna references a little more.

    Glad to finish it, not my favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karla | 1/21/2011
