In 523 BC, the Persian pharaoh Cambyses dispatched an army across Egypt's western desert to destroy the oracle at Siwa. Legend has it that somewhere in the middle of the Great Dune Sea his army was overwhelmed by a sandstorm and lost forever. Two and a half millennia later, a mutilated corpse is washed up on the banks of the Nile at Luxor, an antiques dealer is savagely murdered in Cairo, and a British archaeologist is found dead at the ancient necropolis of Saqqara. The incidents appear unconnected, but Inspector Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor police is not so sure...

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bella | 1/14/2014

    " Found it really difficult to get into at first because of jumping around to so many locations. But I persevered and was well rewarded. Never saw the various twists coming. Well worth the read "

    " I enjoyed it well enough. The descripton of life in Egypt and the arcgaeological view point (true or not) but found the ending few chapters a bit 'm'eh' "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz Young | 12/21/2013

    " A cross between Indiana Jones and The Mummy... but not QUITE as fun. A good read for those who like a bit of action and adventure. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberly Van De Graaff | 10/23/2013

    " This book was on the shelf at Borders for a Book Club book. I thought it would be interesting. I was disgusted by all of the foul language!!!! What could have been a great book was bought down to not worth reading. "

    " It got wierd and forced at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kalen Cap | 9/9/2013

    " Decent storyline overall. Good tie-in of history with archaeological thriller. Some of the twists were were so formulaic, they were expected. Surprisingly, the Yusuf Khalifa character held it together better for me than the Tara Mullray character did as protagonists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 4/20/2013

    " This was really a nice surprise. Well written and really keeps you guessing. Lots of twists and turns. I'm definitely going to be looking for more books by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 10/21/2012

    " Would like to give it a 4.5 stars. Loved it!! Great action/adventure set in modern day Egypt. Had an Indiana Jones quality to it... it even has an evil German archaeologist in it! Has an unexpected twist at the end-- very entertaining! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 12/25/2011

    " It was enjoyable overall, but it seemed like Sussman built in a lot of unnecessary intrigue and suspense that just confused me, rather than complemented the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam Hummel | 8/12/2011

    " Fun book, really entertaining if you're into a fun thrilled that has a lot to do with Egyptian history. I liked it, and am looking forward to reading his others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sunflower | 8/11/2011

    " Not as good as "The secret of the Temple". An ok plane book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 6/18/2011

    " Lots of twists and turns in this plot. Tara seemed a little naive and idealistic getting in over her head too many times. Some of the reveals were OMG with laughter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fan | 6/15/2011

    " One of my first read on this author and not bad adventure in the seeking of lost treasures in the deserts of Egypt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Niken | 5/9/2011

    " What??? Saif al-Tha'r is Ali Khalifa? Daniel Lacage participated in designing the scenario? What a shocked plot. Paul Sussman is really a brilliant in mixing a detective and archeological story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 4/9/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jorge | 11/23/2010

    " Really enjoyed the book, had the drama,action mystery, loved the egyptian influence. And yes it would make a great movie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 8/26/2010

    " If an exciting story from the past can be turned into flat cardboard, this one is it. Tack on a modern thriller on top of it, and it approaches the stupid zone very quickly. DNF. Feh! "
