Under the direction of famed explorer Porter Stone, an archaeological team is secretly attempting to locate the tomb of an ancient pharaoh who was unlike any other in history. Stone believes he has found the burial chamber of King Narmer, the near mythical god-king who united upper and lower Egypt in 3200 B.C., and the archaeologist has reason to believe that the greatest prize of all - Narmer's crown - might be buried with him. No crown of an Egyptian king has ever been discovered, and Narmer's is the elusive crown of the two Egypts, supposedly possessed of awesome powers.

The dig itself is located in one of the most forbidding places on Earth - the Sudd, a nearly impassable swamp in northern Sudan. Amid the nightmarish, disorienting tangle of mud and dead vegetation, a series of harrowing and inexplicable occurrences are causing people on the expedition to fear a centuries - old curse. With a monumental discovery in reach, Professor Jeremy Logan is brought onto the project to investigate. What he finds will raise new questions... and alarm.

In the hands of master storyteller Lincoln Child, The Third Gate breaks new ground and introduces a fascinating new protagonist to the thriller world.

    " The first chapter or two seemed promising but no, this book wasn't very good. It got garbled in bad science/Egyptology and the characters were so one dimensional I could not care less about their plight. I'd say skip this book. "

    " i love that his books are engrossing and although this started out a little "slower" than some of his other books, it quickly turned into a "can't put this down" book! he does not disappoint! great book, especially if you like archaeological and metaphysical books! "

    " "Not my usual, but nice." Glad I don't have to pay for these books, at least. But passes the time well enough. "
