From the internationally bestselling author of The Genesis Secret comes a seductive, exotic new thriller.

In the silent caves beneath France, young archaeologist Julia Kerrigan unearths an ancient skull with a hole bored through the forehead. After she reveals her discovery, her mentor is brutally murdered.

Deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia, photographer Jake Thurby is offered a mysterious assignment by a beautiful Cambodian lawyer who is investigating finds at the two-thousand-year-old Plain of Jars—finds that shadowy forces want kept secret.

From the temples of Angkor Wat and the wild streets of Bangkok to the prehistoric caves in Western Europe, what links Jake’s and Julia’s discoveries is a strange, demonic woman whose unquenchable thirst for vengeance—and the horrors she seeks to avenge—are truly shocking.

Readers have become enthralled by Knox’s vivid blend of buccaneering modern adventure, gothic horror, and grand intellectual puzzles. The Lost Goddess is his most exciting novel to date.

Listener Opinions

    " I really did'nt care for The Lost Goddess, even though there was the essence of a good story. I simply don't care for Knox writing style. Although the second half of the book was better, I had to struggle to get through the first half. He seems to believe that if one adjective or adverb is good, several would be better and his use of them ranged from florid to totally meaningless. Then there was the pretentious diction - guess we were supposed to be impressed with his perspicacity and erudition. Others seem to have liked it OK, just wasn't my cup of tea. "

    " I was frustrated with this book. I found myself distracted from the story many times by word choice. In the first 50 pages or so, we had oleaginous, plangent, fecundity, stridulating and karst. I guess he likes his thesaurus, but for me it was just random and awkward word choice. The story was interesting enough, but the characters weren't as fleshed out as I would have liked. One character...ah, continued to ah, say "ah" just about every other...ah, sentence. Another distraction. I do think it'll give us some interesting things to discuss at book club. "

    " It was ok for me. Probably not as good as the first three. I got a little confused by the theory they were trying to solve, so it was hard for me to really get excited about the story. "

    " There are things that make you go, "What the haaaiiiilll?" This is one of them. I kept going and I was so confused. To futuristically strange for me. "
