The limousine pulled slowly out of the embassy gates, long and sleek and as black as a whale, pausing momentarily before easing forward into the traffic. Read the first page

I liked the book for the uniqueness of the story. I liked the book very much on the development of all characters. My main criticism is Sussman used too many Egyptian words in the book and the majority of them did not add any value or further insight to the story. I don't see the value of knowing how to curse in Egyption, and since I know a little Arabic some of the words were not correct, such as the word "Khutbar" which should have been "Khutbah"! But overall it's a good book to read and I recommend it.

I read this book after reading Sussman's second The Lost Secret of the Temple. The Lost Secret of the Temple is definitely the better book. The storylines are similar - following archeologists who search for lost Egyptian tombs/artifacts. This first book fills in the background of Yusef Khalifa. However, I agree that the graphic violence of an attempted rape contributed little to the storyline and would have been best left out. Fortunately, there were no similar scenes in Lost Secret. What the books have accomplished with me is fueling a new found interest in ancient history and religions. Both books tend to drag in places and I think could have been shortened for the betterment of the storyline. However, I quite enjoyed this book and don't hesitate to recommend it to those interested in this genre.

This book is very well written and does an excellent job of intertwining an archaeological mystery with modern terrorists. It has a particularly nasty villain. It also brings an unusual setting -- modern day Egypt -- to life, with interesting, believable characters. I found it very engrossing and recommend it highly.

I couldn't put it down. The story moves along at a good pace, is intelligently constructed, and surprises with a number of unexpected twists. I thoroughly recommend this book, and look forward to more by the same author.
