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.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberley Mccready | 2/20/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 2/15/2014

    " 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! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 2/11/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 1/31/2014

    " A bit predictable, but fun. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Greg | 1/30/2014

    " What a turd. Read for work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/13/2014

    " A book I picked up becasue nothing elese was in at the library. OK time waster. I'd probably read another by the authour. SO I guess It's not bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drick | 1/4/2014

    " Think Raiders of the Lost Ark meets the DaVinci Code meets the Exorcist - that pretty well captures the essence of this story. For those who like sophisticated mysteries this is a fun read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenna Sargent | 12/15/2013

    " a little technical in spots but a good story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 12/14/2013

    " A bit of a different read for me, but I enjoyed it despite some "fictional facts" but worth the read. Nice twist near the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelsey | 12/13/2013

    " Don't usually read this type of book, but it was mindless enough to read while the others are watching tv. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine | 12/6/2013

    " This book started very slow and really did not pick up until over half way thru the book. Although I did like the premise of the storyline I felt that more could have been done to expand it. While I like other works by Lincoln Child this one was not up to par. Hope the next one is better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy Gaidjunas ganguly | 12/1/2013

    " Kept waiting for it to get started, then it was over. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steve Schlutow | 11/4/2013

    " This book was not very good. I really began liking the Logan character, and was hoping that possibly the character would/could continue.. The ending was a disappointment. I thought it was so bad I gave the book a one star, furthermore I am not interested in the character anymore. It's to bad.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 10/11/2013

    " Reading the descriptions of the Sudd and the exploration grid by grid brought caused my claustrophobia to surface. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 10/7/2013

    " A page turner! Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcia Tomka | 9/26/2013

    " Loved it! I think Linc should bring this character back, maybe a series. I suspect there may be another book, based on the ending. Highly recommend, especially if you're a fan of Preston & Child. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christa Pelc | 9/22/2013

    " A perfect combination of mystery & archeology & drama!! Wow! A brainy read that has a fast plot, thanks to the lack of excess fillers. I also really appreciated the absence of swearing and sex scenes-- books r fine without it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 8/3/2013

    " As a book about an ancient Egypt discovery of Narmers tomb it is an amazing story, gives food for thought about finding his tomb someday. The possesion side of the story leaves a bit to be imagined, but all in all, it still makes for a very interesting tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 7/2/2013

    " Had a lot of potential but I didn't feel any connection to the characters. Too bad, since Logan had some good building blocks. The whole storyline of Jennifer having an NDE too.... Oh,well. It was better than his previous onesies, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim | 3/27/2013

    " I've read all of Child's books, and this is the only one I found boring and predictable. Maybe I'll skip his next few books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie | 9/16/2012

    " Not one of his better books. It was Ok.. mummy, curse, people you dont really care about die.. I would wait for the used paperback.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Zimmerman | 9/12/2012

    " Good, quick summer read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike Heyd | 9/6/2012

    " Not Child's best. Somehow the mystery wasn't that mysterious and the suspense failed to really build. Nothing really unexpected happened. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aurora Bayan | 9/4/2012

    " It was a quick read and a fun adventure...though nowhere near as great as the Pendergast novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 GD77 | 8/21/2012

    " This is a great novel that starts builds slowly and methodically and culminates in a thrilling finish. Absolutely enthralling and a masterful work from an unparalleled literary talent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 S.E. | 8/13/2012

    " Inventive and unexpected - that's my best choice of words to describe this well-crafted horror novel. I thought it was very exciting and recommend it to horror buffs wholehearedly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 AnneK | 8/12/2012

    " I didn't care very much for this book. The author takes too many liberties with historical facts and the story is just not that exciting. From what I had heard about this novel I expected a lot better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K.A. | 7/26/2012

    " A thrilling horror novel set in the world of ancient Egyptian archaeology with an incredible ending that's very unexpected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dean Carlton | 7/14/2012

    " Decent fun but nothing great. It was too dull in too many places for my taste. The story moved along like molasses on a winter day. Disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ronda | 7/6/2012

    " Lincoln Child's books are just fun summer reads (or in this case, "listens")! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Magic Mary Austin | 6/30/2012

    " This is pure Lincoln Child - the lone male protagonist must solve a mystery before the whole place blows up, as it always does at the end of the book. Never the less, it caught my interest and held it right up to unveiling the surprise villain and the big explosion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 S.V. | 6/9/2012

    " The Third Gate is a wonderful supernatural thriller that's as good as anything from Stephen King or similar bestselling authors. I loved it and hope to see a movie adaptation - that would be awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 T.W. Fendley | 5/19/2012

    " Entertaining, fast read--an archeological thriller set in a part of Egypt I'd never heard of--a swamp called the Sudd. "
