I got this book with my Christmas gift voucher. It is a set of 8 different "Deadly Conspiracies Cracking Codes Thrilling Adventures" Books. All for 9.99. Smart!

"In 523 BC, the Persian pharaoh Cambyses dispatched an army across Egypt's western desert to destroy the oracle at Siwa. Legend has it that his army was overwhelmed by a sandstorm and lost forever...

Two and a half millennia later a mutilated corpse is washed up on the banks of the Nile at Luxor, an antiques dealer is savagely murdered in Cairo, and a British archaeologist is found dead at the ancient necropolis of Saaqara.

The incidents appear unconnected, but Inspector Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor police is suspicious. As is the archaeologist’s daughter, Tara Mullray. Stumbling on a curious hieroglyphic fragment, their search for the truth suddenly becomes a dangerous race against time that leads deep into the desert's unforgiving heart and to one if the great mysteries of the ancient world...

'Adrenaline-packed feel like you've been on a rollercoaster, in a library and down the Nile all at the same time' Crime Time

'Tough, sometimes brutal, always engrossing... Sussman knows his Egypt, past and present' Dr Barbara Mertz, archaeologist

'As complex as a hall of mirrors and as gripping as a death threat " Kikus Reviews"

Wow! What a well written story. For once I had no idea what was going to happen. The charachters' fates in some cases was rather a surprise. I loved thi historical elements and use of Arabic. I think the book repersented both the accepted and fanatical points of view quite well. I liked the Glossary too. Plan to release for someone else to enjoy.
