My work as a computer geek has me traveling around the world, solving mysteries and fighting bad guys. Sometimes with my friends, but always with trouble by my side. So you'd think I would've expected to be plagued by danger when I headed to Egypt with my best friend, Elvis Zimmerman, and boyfriend, Slash, to help track down Elvis' missing and estranged father. Nope.
Genius runs in the family, and we quickly discovered Elvis' father is hot on the trail of an ancient and elusive artifact, one that people are willing to kill to find. Tombs, tablets, and code come together as we follow a set of clues that has been waiting millennia to be discovered.
Cracking code is my specialty, but I never expected to tackle one from 1,500 years before the advent of written language. The sands of time are running out. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, we won't be able to rewrite history. So it's up to us to find and safeguard the secret, to ensure no living soul ever encounters it again.

Lexi and Slash Are A Real Couple
Lexi and Slash are a couple moving in together. But, then Elvis' dad enters the picture. Gwen the microbiologist gets involved to help Elvis solve a mystery and all wind up going to Egypt following a clue. The adventure is typical Lexi but not as compelling IMHO. I like this series very much but this book got on my nerves. I didn't like Gwen's attitude. Can someone with an advanced degree really act and sound (kudos to narrator) like a petulant child? Apparently so. Lexi and Slash survive some adventures and you don't really figure anything out until the end. The descriptions of the museum, the artifacts, and the sights and smells of Cairo are almost palpable. It is another great story and Lexi learns more about being a 'girlfriend.' Is that jealousy I see? Hmmm. We don't get to see Slash being as hunky as usual but he is still leading the pack. Kristin Watson Heinz is a good narrator for this series.
