I was given a copy of the book from Library Things for an honest and fair review.
The books gripped me from the beginning it has murder and mystery. The book resolved around Alex as to finish his best friends research after her death. His friend and colleague Ellen is an Egyptologist on to a major discovery that could change history. There are people who will stop at anything to stop this discovery becoming public. Alex has to figure out the clues Ellen has left him as well as the people he can trust.
I really enjoyed this book, it reminded me of the Dan Brown books with the race against time to solve the puzzle, the lurking danger. It kept me guessing who Alex should trust and shouldnt trust. An element that was different from the Dan Brown books is that the author had added an additional story of a man in ancient egypt which connected to the discovery but was interesting in it own right.
