Walter Rothschild is an American Egyptologist living in London and charged by the British Museum with the task of unlocking the riddle of the Stela of Paser, a centuries-old funerary stone. In the final hours of his quest, with six days left before his contract is up with the British Museum, Walter meets a young woman who expresses an interest in him and his work. That night, he invites her back to the museum; the next morning, she bids him a speedy farewell, and secretly makes off with a precious antiquity. When Walter discovers the theft, it becomes clear that outside forces have designs on his research, and his entire career - and life - is on the line.

The Third Translation is a highly charged, engrossing tale that introduces Matt Bondurant as an important new voice in modern American fiction.

    " This was promoted along the lines of Dan Brown & it is--but more intelligent. Brown mixes fact & fiction at leisure w/the undiscerning not recognizing which is which. Bondurant uses indepth fact/research to build his storyline but remains true to fact as we know it at the moment. I find it so interesting that this is an adult companion to the new Rick Riordan Red Pyramid with many of the same characters. If you're reading along with your child, you'll enjoy reading this one in 'me time.' Strong, intelligent book that keeps you intrigued. Good local (now at UTDallas) author. "

    " Although it had undertones of The Da Vinci Code...i still loved this mystery. "

    " eh...not so much. this book was very so-so, in my opinion - too much (not terribly informative) information on ancient Egyptian languages and too little of everything else. not much of a plot, very little character development, a lot of blah. i was really hoping this would be a good one! but alas. "

    " I liked it, but it missed the mark somewhere towards the end. Yeah, Egyptologists and archaeologists and linguists and museum people are all messed up, and Yes, the weirdos who trail around behind with their theories are totally nuts, but come on...really? So much stuffed into the first 2/3, only to peter out at the end. "
