In the shifting desert sands of Egypt, rumours abound of a lost papyrus that will reveal the true purpose of the Pyramids of Giza. Could these ancient monoliths be the source of a new kind of energy, one that comes at no cost to the planet?
CIA agent Curtis O'Connor and archaeologist Aleta Weizman are determined to find out. Close by, a shadowy and powerful group known as Pharos meets in Alexandria, its membership a closely guarded secret.
Its first order of business: to orchestrate chaos on international financial markets with a series of spectacular terrorist attacks on the world's fossil-fuel supplies.
And in Cairo, amid the anarchy of Tahrir Square, thieves have broken into the famed Museum of Antiquities and stolen one of the world's priceless artifacts: the mask of Tutankhamun. Is the audacious theft linked to the Pharos Group?

Couldn't get past Chapter 6 ...
What disappointed you about The Alexandria Connection?
I was willing to wait out the contrived exposition scenes and the overawed explanations of how big/fast/powerful every car/boat/explosive was, but I gave up when the awkward attempts at titillation began. It's like it was written by a 14-year-old, for other 14-year-olds.
What do you think your next listen will be?
What didn’t you like about Sean Mangan’s performance?
He's okay if I listen at 1.5 speed.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
THANK YOU AUDIBLE, FOR YOUR RETURN POLICY!! I'm so glad this was not a wasted credit.

Another fascinating prophetic novel
Once more the master story teller ex military decorated officer talks about fictional power brokers and the James Bond type hero. How real and close to true life. It's a lesson for all of us caught up in the existential hum drum of life. Jim Daly the previous narrator if his books in my view was better for this type of book.
